Random fact of the week

with 8 comments

If you bothered to click on the link in my last Brighton post, you will already know that Liechtenstein and Uzbekistan are the only two doubly landlocked countries in the world.

Bizarrely enough, I met someone from Uzbekistan when I was in Liech. He was doing his masters in business and wrote all this bumph on his application letter about being an ambassador from one doubly landlocked country to another. Seemed to work though… Personally, I’m very glad to be home, if still some distance from the sea.

  3. to “life, left liech”:
    What does doubly landlocked mean? 2 countries between it (the country) and the sea? Did I just answer my own question? was i correct? does it matter? I suppose it does for those doubly landlocked, but I am getting off the subject.

  4. Are you a pirate? You were right about the doubly landlocked countries, but am I right about your identity?
