Our World Tuesday, ABC Wednesday, Q for Quiz

We have arrived at the letter Q, which is a quizical letter, and very difficult, but.... I thought it might be a great idea if those who join us in the ABC Wednesday meme, try to find out which photos belong to the countries or country-sides I wrote about. You could perhaps match the letters of the countries with the letters of the pictures.

Countries:
A Netherlands, B England, C Scotland D Norway, E Denmark, F Greece, G Egypt, H Australia, I France, J Israel.

Kinderdijk, windmills, Netherlands  1



Netherlands, Peace Palace The Hague  4
2 Delphi

Israel 3 celebrating Purim







Australia 5 Coloured Sands

France  6 Francois Premier

Egypt 7 Pyramid
Israel  8 Archaeological park


England  9 Shakespeare  lived here



Norway 10 Stave  church in Borgund

Denmark  11 Church on Møn

 Scotland   12

I wish I were widely traveled enough to get an A on this QUIZ! Lovely post.

Great shots around the world Wil. They brought the Aussie song to mind 'I've been everywhere man'. I once counted up the countries I have visited and got to forty, I'm sure you have been to more than that and good for you.

Terrific captures of such beautiful places, Wil!! How wonderful that you've been able to travel so much!! I've traveled a lot and lived in several different countries and I've enjoyed them all!! Thanks for sharing these with us today!!

Kay said...

I do believe I recognize Kinderdijk. :-)

Roger Owen Green said...

I'm going to have to do a review! The first one, I HOPE, is the Netherlands though.

Melody Steenkamp said...

Wat een leuk logje maar je moet het me maar niet kwalijk nemen dat ik geen antwoorden ga geven want ik herken alleen maar de 1e *glimlach* en wil geen flater slaan

Trubes said...

I recognise a few of them Wil but I'm stumped on most, but I've enjoyed looking at tour lovely snapshots.
Some of them are obvious but others could be in any European place.
You certainly are well travelled though!

best wishes,
Di.

Wonderful photos, Wil, - they widen the knowledge of this stay-at-home-stick-in-the-mud and I do envy you your wonderful travels.

Melody Steenkamp said...

zelfs die herkende ik niet...nadat ik het opzocht wel maar da's niet eerlijk he?

Ik herken verder geen enkele, ben niet zo bereisd.... als je nou zo'n lijstje had gemaakt met de gevels van Nederlandse theaters/schouwburgen, dan had ik het wel geweten ;-)

Kay said...

I'm back to try the Quiz. There's several that I have to guess on:
1 Netherland
2 Greece
3 Israel
4 England
5 Australia
6 France
7 Egypt
8 Israel
9 England or Scotland
10 ?
11 Denmark?
12 England or Scotland?

Reader Wil said...

Melody Steenkamp said...

A Netherlands = 1 + 4
B England = 12

D Norway = 10
E Denmark = 11
F Greece = 2 + 8
G Egypt = 7
H Australia = 5
I France = 6

Quite a post there. I just love quizzes. The best thing about blogs is that you can visit the world sitting at home :)

Real quiz indeed.

Great post!

Wil, I loved this. A clever way to answer the prompt, and a little trip around the world to start my day! Thanks so much for all you do at ABC. Amy

This was such a smart way to handle the toughie Q. I think I recognised Greece, France and Egypt. Will give it a second look.

Arnoldo L. Romero, MLA said...

Yikes! This may be an "F" post for me. Have a blessed week, my friend!

Ann, Chen Jie Xue 陈洁雪 said...

my question is what and where is the Stave church.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Thank you for the answers! I actually knew more of them than I thought I would have. I shouldn't have been afraid to say so.
