France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Luxembourg, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, do England, Wales & Scotland count? If so, 14 out of 28 (although I thought there were more than 28 European countries......???).

Not many. France, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Spain but only Ibiza, Netherlands, Ireland. I've seen Sweden from Denmark does that count?
Oh and Scotland and Wales, do we include the Channel Islands too?

Edit. Turkey, the European bit - Istanbul.

I'm using the EU 28 less UK but plus Switzerland as a definition. In theory it could be extended to a few more, but I prefer to exclude Turkey (despite having visited there).

Ah, then some of mine don't count.

I think you should include the non-EU EEA countries so that we can still play this game next year and then I could add Greenland too.
