On the road again (Posted on 2018-04-10) Difficulty: 3 of 5
True (albeit coded) facts: a year ago i've visited an Europian country named 2831561, to-morrow I'm boarding a flight to another country with a lesser population i.e. 1234561
The digits that could represent the Capital letters of the corresponding capitals of those countries were not mentioned above, but enough is said for you to find the cities and the countries.

(In reply to computer lists possibilities; logic narrows down to actual answers by Charlie)

In reading broll's solution, I see I inadvertently assumed that the "country with a lesser population" was also a European country, though the puzzle did not necessarily indicate that. So that leaves Algeria and Armenia in contention.

Algeria has a 40.61 million population according to Wikipedia.
Armenia has a 2.925 million population.

Croatia has 4.171 million.
Romania has 19.71 million.

Austria has 8.787 million.

I had Romania and Austria.

It could have been Romania and Armenia or Croatia and Armenia.

Added: Croatia's capital is (Z)agreb and Armenia's is (Y)erevan.
