You may have noticed I’ve got a new widget on ¡Vámonos! labelled Where in the world…??
This follows someone (I’m afraid I can’t recall who!) Tweeting about placeSpotting.com, an online map game based on Google maps. There are numerous riddles showing a satellite picture of somewhere in the world in the top box, and in the bottom box is a Google map of the world. Your task is to find the exact satellite picture to ‘solve’ the riddle. Some people have left clues to help you – for example, I’ve just solved on with the clues

.…… Beach
Crockett and Tubbs

leading me to Miami.

Yesterday I was sent to Ullaru with the clue

Kangaroos

I’m now addicted to the site – given the cold and hail/snow, it’s a fine way to spend a Bank Holiday afternoon, improving my Geographical knowledge (not my strong point). Some of the puzzles are fiendishly hard, others are very easy – I had to find the border between France and Spain yesterday!

Here are a few puzzles I’ve made to bamboozle you – they’re not hard! Congratulations to @mrmackenzie and @josepicardo for solving the first one very quickly!

¡Suerte!
