Reorganize

I';ve never been to the western europe page before, but why does it redirect to all of europe (including eastern europe)

And why do the countries on the europe page differ so much from the main page?

I would suggest the country groups on the main page go to:

Scandinavia, West, East.

And thats it - except for some Lonely Planet guide books, Mediterraian Europe is pretty obscure.

Scandivaia - Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland

Western Europe - UK, France, Germany, Austria, , Usual suspects, Italy and Greece.

Eastern Europe - Poland, the Baltics, Balkans, Hungary, Romania, Czechs, Slovakians, ex (and current) Soviet countries.

I know this will piss of the polish and the lithuanians (who are 'centre'), but its tough - i've drank 6 litres of beer so I don't care - :) It's concept - rather than a geographical thing.

Excuse the spelling - I'm drunk.

Great to see I'm not the only one editing this wiki while being drunk! ;)

Finland is NOT part of Scandinavia!! I'm finnish so I should know!

Hmm, we should reorganize, for sure. But somehow I don't think Italy and Greece are in Western Europe :) GuakaTalkCS 22:43, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

Is this true? About trucks

In many (maybe all) of the European countries, trucks are not allowed to use the highway on Sundays.

I thought it was just Germany and Austria, and for Saturday and Sundays.

Hitching over the weekend is normally no problem.

It's the same in France. I just changed that. Needs some more work though. GuakaTalkCS 22:43, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

Turkey

I really need to argue about Turkey being in Europe as much as it is in Asia. And I would like if it were inserted on the Europe page too. Anyone have any arguments against this? I don't care what the U.N. we-think-we're-smart report says. Turkey is in Europe too. Just need some opinions before I make the change. TruckThor 21:53, 30 June 2008 (CEST)

I would say, that's ok. We should do the same for Russia as well. --MrTweek 23:11, 30 June 2008 (CEST)
