They obviously don't come and go away after 3 months.
So how to we go about getting around this legally? The last thing we want to do is leave or worse get fined or lose our boat. We love it here!
we sailed across the atlantic in 2013 and have constantly run into schengren problems. last summer we sailed italy
- schengren - albania, montenego and croatia
which were not schengren but croatia
is now schengren. we sailed back to tunisia
via venice and malta
and probably over stayed a few days.
we wintered over in tunisia last year and this year and will winter over in turkey
next year after sailing sciliy, albania and greece
there is a very long thread on the schengren at
