  • MamaK2009/11/02 20:56:52

  • lisss2009/11/02 21:08:48
    Wow thanks so much :D Even though I got in later than some my answers were correct, wow! Totally unexpected!!! Was a fun comp as well, would have been happy even if I hadnt won so thanks for running it Nod!!!
  • bt342009/11/02 21:14:32
    Silly me. I got all the answers but put the destinations as answers for questions number 3 instead Lara Croft and curry.
  • kazyazy2009/11/02 21:21:59
    I put Angelina Jolie instead of Lara croft lol
  • thanratt2009/11/02 21:33:54
    Congrats winners. I put Edible blooms for flowers you can eat instead of Ymmy bunch. Bugger! Oh well was all good fun and I did win a spot prize. YaY!

    Thanks Nod it was all very entertaining.
  • kazyazy2009/11/02 21:36:40
    I put edible blooms too...because the clue said edible in it.

    Day one ...I didn't have a good day lol...Somehow the rest is still correct haha

    This Buckscoop cashback merchant offers a different (edible) take on the normal bunch of flowers as a gift. Please note the 1st letter of this merchants name. This is first letter of the location

    I still can't work out how its Yummy bunch and not edible blooms :o
  • nod2009/11/02 21:50:05
    The first location was Yulara - hence you needed the Y
  • kazyazy2009/11/02 21:53:09
    Ahhh I answered them in order so I was left with an E thats why I got confused lol
  • melscott282009/11/02 21:55:05
    i didnt get cape leeuwin and still not sure how the answer is that?

    Yes i know a bit dumb but please tell me what im missing.
  • kazyazy2009/11/02 22:18:19
    Pelerine= cape and..
    Its where the Southern and Indian Oceans meet
    and it said Cape LeeUWIN so I figured its was right

    Its nice to finally know the answers...I didn't know if I was on the right track at all lol :)
  • melscott282009/11/02 22:39:52

    lol now i see, i put cape howe. i thought indians say howe :o
  • lisss2009/11/02 22:45:43
    kazyazy
    I put Angelina Jolie instead of Lara croft lol


    Destination was YULARA hence why you needed the Lara Croft :) Otherwise the clue didnt correspond with the destination at all.
  • lisss2009/11/02 22:47:15
    melscott28
    lol now i see, i put cape howe. i thought indians say howe :o


    This also occurred to me melscott not so stupid I don't think!!! However I put Cape Leuwin because I did research and its where the Southern & Indian Oceans meet - which explains the 'Southern' in the clue.

    Kazy - I never even noticed the UWIN!!! Clever!
  • kazyazy2009/11/02 22:55:11

    I put Exmouth because Angelina Jolie has big lips and I had E from edible blooms.... lol
  • kazyazy2009/11/02 22:57:24
    melscott28
    lol now i see, i put cape howe. i thought indians say howe :o


    Cape Howe does make sense...so your not silly at all Melscott..it was very tricky. After all only 2 people got all the answers right! :D

    That was fun..I haven't had to think that much in years lol
  • lisss2009/11/03 00:32:16

    Aaah I see that makes sense!!!
  • craftykiwi2009/11/03 07:12:28
    Darn! Got all the answers right including the cape one but thought the destination had to be a town related to Cape Leeuwin not a double up of the Answer for Q3. (So let down at the last post.) :(

    Oh well. Still lots of fun and congrats to you lisss and MamaK.
