That's not fully true. You have to show your passport to the *first* country
of that area you get into, from there on, you don't (since there is no
customs borders between countries there).

Also, not all of the EU is member of the Schengen treaty. Switzerland
recently joined even though they are not member of the EU (though they
havn't implemented it yet, there are a number of things Switzerland
has to do first). The obvious example is the UK, which insists on
checking your passport if you come from the mainland.

Have a nice day,
