I remember the highest mountain in Europe by associating it with a body joint which bends into the shape of a mountain. Therefore, I couldn't figure out why Mt. Nebrus wasn't accepted. Smacking self severely. Also thrown by the Monaco clue. I was trying to think of some smaller division of France located on the Riviera. I always think of Monaco as simply a country. I think I need another cup of coffee this morning. Good quiz to get me thinking early, though.

Went straight from one of the chain quizzes to this and got thrown for a fairly ridiculous amount of time by question number two. Eventually I realised the letters didn't need to match up.

I always get Elbrus and Erebus mixed up, when I guess one and it's wrong I can never remember the other. Apart from that I thought this was pretty easy.
