If you change planes in a country but don't leave the airport, does it count as entering the country? What if you're entering/leaving Schengen there so you go past passport control, does that make a difference?

I'm trying to work out which countries in our pinboard of where we've been to stick pins in, and while on the way out we stopped in Denmark, which we'd already been to, only I had previously been to Sweden.

I'd only count it if I left the airport during a layover rather than just a connecting flight where I don't leave the airport, but I don't think there's any hard and fast rule. If it's just for you then why not count is as you like? :)

I wouldn't count it unless I left the airport.

I wouldn't count it as a tick for that country. Equally I wouldn't count changing trains in a station as having visited the containing town or city.

I recently wondered how to fill in the "how many days I am going to spend in Canada?" form when the answer was basically "a small number of hours" (but including leaving the airport).

I would say no, but your list your rules.
