For those who have run out pictures, here is another game to stretch the old traveling brain.
Just like the picture game… Google knows all answers so please try to avoid the temptation. Hints will be given if needed and after 18 hours in there are no correct answer the game is opened to web searches.
Pictures may be used as part of the question if you so desire.
The question can be about anywhere in the world.
The person who gets the question correct in its entirety will post the next question.
Good Luck

Question #1

Name the countries in on the continent of Europe that drive on the left side of the road?

Tom--Can you tell us how many correct answers there are?

England drives on the left hand side, but they are not on the continent of Europe??

Love it Carol! The lawyer lives! I will drop the word continent and just say Europe.
Of which the UN identifies 44 countries in Europe - Now the twist...
England is not one of the countries.

To answer your question - more than one but less than 10 smile

Sleepychef - 0 would not be correct

Madam Counselor... being an island does not preclude you being a country... Or even an continent smile wink

Carol, I believe Angel Falls is THE tallest in the world. For third tallest I will guess Switzerland. But I cannot remember the name.

Since it is technically two tunnels and three bridges I don't know for sure if it qualifies as the longest 'bridge'. I think there might be one longer. Of course i could be wrong. jester

I think the longest suspension span in the U.S. is still the Verrazzano, but I'm not sure if that's what you're asking.

Dan cheers

Missed this originally. Tom, you were right first time. The UK is part of the continent of Europe as the continental shelf of Europe extends to the west of Ireland and the north of Scotland.

Coastal dune lakes intermittently open and close along coastal regions. They are actually very rare, but I do live by one, so the US is correct. Florida and Oregon are the 2 states in the US. I thought this might be a tough one. We need 2 more countries.
