    The ones I got wrong were on the first day...silly me :confused: At least I ended up at the right destination lol
  • MamaK
    Thanks Buckscoop:flowers: and congratulations Lisss:D
  • lisss
    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!!!
  • bt34
    Silly me. I got all the answers but put the destinations as answers for questions number 3 instead Lara Croft and curry.
  • kazyazy
    I put Angelina Jolie instead of Lara croft lol
  • thanratt
    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.
  • kazyazy
    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
  • nod
    The first location was Yulara - hence you needed the Y
  • kazyazy
    Ahhh I answered them in order so I was left with an E thats why I got confused lol
  • melscott28
    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.
  • kazyazy
    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 :)

    lol now i see, i put cape howe. i thought indians say howe :o
  • lisss
    kazyazy;100932
    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.
  • lisss
    melscott28;100958
    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!

    I put Exmouth because Angelina Jolie has big lips and I had E from edible blooms.... lol
  • kazyazy
    melscott28;100958
    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

    Aaah I see that makes sense!!!
  • craftykiwi
    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.
