There are supposedly 49 countries in Europe. This includes Azerbaijan, for example. I guess FIFA and the CIA World Factbook can categorise countries any way they want -- who's going to stop them? But I can't imagine telling your truelove that you want to take her on a tour of European capitals and then booking flights for Baku and Yerevan. OK, I can imagine it, because in my family that would be considered humorous. What I mean is, I can't imagine still having the sweetheart afterward.
What do you call Europe? I imagine few Cypriots are reading this blog, so you can let your prejudices flow.
