The identifying feature of last week’s distorted photograph were the spires. Oxford might be known for its dreamy spires but these are not Oxford spires. Seen from the river these less than dreamy spires are very definitely German and are in the city Bremen.
It was not such an easy city to identify; in fact it was a real toughie. Three countries seemed to be pinpointed as possibilities, Germany (with several cities being suggested as possibilities), the UK and Sweden (with Gothenburg being singled out). Only one winner this week and that was researcher extraordinaire and regular to these pages, Tim (@timofnewbury). Congratulations and thanks to all who took part. There are a good number of you as the visitor statistics to this page show an increasing number of visits.
Those who thought Bremen might be a British city will be glad that this week’s city is firmly in the UK. It will not be that easy to identify; which is why I have given a hint before your thoughts wander off to Germany or Sweden.
Can you identify the city in this week’s Where in the World…? You can leave your answer in the comments below or on my Twitter feed (@lethers) with the hashtag #WITW72. If we mutually follow each other on Twitter then you could send me a direct message with your answer, not forgetting the hashtag #WITW72. You can also leave your answer under the post referring to this on the Travel Unpacked Facebook page (please like the page while you are there). You can also click the contact tab above and send me an e-mail with the answer. Good luck.
Now for something a little different. Meet the Frog. The Frog will travel around and take a different view of the world. You can meet him on the Travel Unpacked Facebook page.
If you enjoy identifying these twisted cities then you might enjoy the new puzzle from the series “Where on Earth is the Frog?” It’s simple all you have to do is identify where the Frog is from the photograph taken from the Frog’s viewpoint.
Head over to the Travel Unpacked Facebook page to have a look at the first one. If you click on the page’s “Like” button you will know when each new one is posted. They will not be regular like the puzzles on this blog as the Frog has to travel between the destinations. Continent hopping can take some time when you are a Frog.
