You may have seen Randal Olson’s maps about computing the “ultimate” US roadtrip that hit one top “landmark” in each of the 50 US States. Now personally, I had a bit to quibble with the selection of some of the landmarks (I mean Spring Grove Cemetery for Ohio?!!?), but other than that I think it was super awesome.
I mean, when you’re talking to someone who is trying to visit every county in the United States, and has already attempted to visit the shortest path to visit every county in Ohio, a timelapse video of visiting every county in the 6 New England states, or visiting every county in Utah, or all 5 Great Lakes in one day, this is naturally right up my alley. In fact, when the US map first started getting shared, I had about 5,000 friends email me about it 🙂
He’s now back with the ultimate European road trip.
He picked the 50 spots based on a BusinessWeek article called “50 Places In Europe You Need To Visit In Your Lifetime.” Estimate is that it would take about 14 straight days of driving.

Interesting. Thanks for sharing.
My suggestion to do this road trip in Europe (if your from the USA) would be to do Volvo European delivery of a new Volvo in Gothenburg Sweden. Do the route and drop it back off for shipment to the state 🙂
That would be slick. You probably saw it already, but I wrote about the Volvo European Delivery a few weeks ago.
