26/11/2007 Virtually Europe "Using only my computer to guide me I recently embarked on a somewhat tortuous virtual trip from the UK to Russia visiting 10 countries en route.  Apart from leaving the UK, I only crossed the land borders of adjacent European countries.  Each of the 10 answers in this round is of 2 words and represents, in sequence from the UK, one of the 10 countries I visited (excluding the UK and Russia) by having the 2 words start with, respectively, the 2 letters which form the Internet suffix for the country concerned."
