Excellent game!!

I scored 17 349 but did allow myself to Google anything I could find (but for some places there are very few clues).

The urls should be shorter!


I don't know if using Google is supposed to be within the spirit of the game, but it's incredibly satisfying to scrape together a few clues, and then home in on the exact spot. Playing it without Google is a lot more boring in my opinion.

The biggest problem is that South Africa, Mexico, and Australia all have extremely similar looking endless expanses of nothing.

Tip: cars drive on the left in Australia, so road signs and posts will be on the left.

They also do in South Africa too, which is unfortunate.
