The swallow never visits the same island twice, even if it's closer
Based on distance between the capitals

I can't believe I missed the one before the leap frog. I was thinking about Caribbean islands and I couldn't think of which one I hadn't answered yet. Kicked myself when I saw the answer

The main character of Charles Dickens's story A Christmas Carol. He is a tightfisted miser who famously dismisses Christmas as a fraud by saying "Bah, humbug!"

I got every single one right, expect Bahrain. That one really threw me for a loop, very clever. I kept thinking it had something do it with the city of Hamburg, since I thought Scrooge would've said "Bah, humbug".

I think the leap frog should be from barbados to cape verde 4,000+kms rather than cape verde to Canarys which is only 1400.
