Friends are great for laughing, building confidence, and helping to find geocaches. These are the foundations of any true friendship. While we all need a friend to lean on from time to time for a smiley, there are a few caches that require you to bring friends along.
Today we release a new country/regional souvenir for Egypt! If you have found a geocache in Egypt, you automatically receive the souvenir on your profile.
Along the shores of the Red Sea, about 500 kilometers (300 miles) southeast of Cairo, you will find Soma Bay, a sunny beach area full of activities such as sailing, windsurfing, snorkeling, and scuba diving.

Vatican City is the smallest country in the world. With only 100 acres of land, this tiny monarchy’s influence has been huge—the Pope and the Catholic Church once ruled Europe.
This influence is reflected today in the over 900 ornate churches which remain. If you visit Rome, we recommend visiting these churches to help you solve the architectural mystery of this Geocache of the Week: Eyes Up.
Some geocaches take you to remote mountains peaks, some require you to solve puzzles before you find them, and some teach you about history, like our Geocache of the Week. This ten-stage Multi-Cache takes you on a tour around the historic sites of the beautiful city of Maastricht, which has 1,677 national heritage sites (Rijksmonumenten), the second highest number in the Netherlands after Amsterdam.
Some places deserve a second glance. Blink and you might miss Liechtenstein, Europe’s fourth-smallest country. Sandwiched between Austria and Switzerland, visitors can enjoy the same alpine terrain as its mountainous neighbors while enjoying winter sports and 5-star hotels. The most Favorited local hotel, however, is not one you can spend the night in. It’s Welcome TB-Hotel Liechtenstein, our Geocache of the Week!
