Unlike the formidable Friday foxers, the Monday kind are designed with lone truth sleuths in mind. While Roman, my Chief Foxer Setter, would be very interested to know how long it takes you to defox the following brainteaser, he requests that the comments section isn’t used to share solutions or drop hints.
“Where am I?”
Using the following clues (the map above is purely decorative) in combination with Street View, Wikipedia, MAPfrappe and other tools, work out my location. The answer will appear under next Monday’s solo foxer.
Today I’m standing on an unmade road, next to a compound that wouldn’t look out of place in a first-person shooter. The compound is in a national park that’s larger in size than the Isle of Wight. The country you seek has eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites within its borders and a weapon on its flag. Its national sport involves a net and it has never won an Olympic bronze medal. NE of the country’s highest point, I’m roughly two miles from the nearest provincial border. I share latitude with three countries that begin with the letter ‘G’, and a republic admitted to the UN in Justin Bieber’s lifetime.
You’re probably in the right place if you can see…
- A pair of blue flip-flops
- An unglazed window
- A sheet of wriggly tin
- No people
- No vehicles
I’m not in Pont-à-Mousson.
