You should change the hint for the Canary Islands, we are more in the coast of Western Sahara than Morocco.

True, but I left it as Morocco because of the disputed territory status. A lot of maps include WS as part of Morocco without even drawing a border between them.

"Since a United Nations-sponsored ceasefire agreement in 1991, most of the territory (including the entire Atlantic coast line) has been controlled by Morocco" - quote from wikipedia.

Thanks for the feedback anyway :)

Becuase indeed it's disputed, you might want to add (las) Malvinas as an exeptable answer for Falklands

Great quiz. You might also accept Thira and Thera for Santorini. Got 26/29. Forgot the e on the end of Donne and didn't know the Game of Thrones or Yeats references.

25/29, English literature and Game of thrones aren't really my strongest points :)
