    Only had one that I could have googled, but I recognized the language as Polish so didn't want to.  It's more of a challenge that way.  Many of mine were mostly terrain with no signs.  I placed one in South Africa that was really in Australia but all my other guesses were within 250 - 400 miles.

    Really, really fun.

    Many thanks for sharing it.

      I made the exact same mistake (South Africa for Australia). I wonder if we even saw the same picture.

      I had a pic of a road through dry scrubland with a few low hills in the background. I noticed the trucks were on the "wrong" side of the road so I figured I was in the Britich commonwealth somewhere. I guessed AUS and it turned out to be SA.
