Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.

Seems to me that terrain and geography matters a lot.

I've driven a lot in Greece, Italy and Spain. Italy and Spain are big countries with very diversified terrain. I once spent 36 hours on a train from Padova to Sicily (and yes, it broke down a number of times, but was not stopped for more than an hour at any given time). Greece is pretty mountainous and Spain is just big.
