Surely there's a better clue for Siena than 'Tuscan city'.

Especially since Pisa is also a Tuscan city. But great quiz nevertheless!

I'd suggest changing Siena for Split (and the clue for Croatian city) to solve the ambiguity and make the test more varied.

I'd also suggest changing "spit" (least guessed answer) by "latin"

Does alpine not just relate to the Alps & not mountain in general?

It can be either.

I believe it was originally only used to refer to the Alps but nowadays the meaning has bled across to mean anything to do with mountains.

I did have the same thought though, although the phrasing is vague enough that it could mean Alps by "the mountains" (would be a better clue without Alps already being an answer, if that was intentional).

Palestine isn´t an actual location since its not a recognized country, despite having the Palestinian National Authority that governs the Gaza strip -specially since its a territory in dispute- and other territories.

Well, I've heard of terra nullius, but now we're disputing whether Palestine is even a place. Perhaps this is a postmodern turn!

Except for Spain and Nepal, none of the answers are recognised countries, yet, somehow, only Palestine bothers you?

The same way Americans are supposed to know Siena. Aspen is not just a resort, it's a town.

Because of the map of places you've been it's a couple countries and a few of the United States, including....🥁🥁🥁🥁....Colorado.

Perhaps you visited a gift shop and picked up some souvenir question marks.

Steppe and prairie should work for plain. And maybe isthmus for spit.

I think having both "alps" and "alpine" is a bit duplicative. How about "tinsel" instead of one of them?

I love these, nice mix of brain activities!

One little thing though - "Swiss peaks" looks like it's asking for something specific to Switzerland. Austria has both a much higher percentage of the Alps in its territory and a slightly higher percentage of its territory taken up by the Alps, so the fact that Switzerland is mentioned made it seem to me like it must be something only in that country.

I don't think many other people had this problem though, good work!

Didn't get the Colorado ski resort. I could have got a Croatian seaside resort.
