Friday Foxer #117

Every Friday at 1300 hours, Tally-Ho Corner’s cleverest clogs come together to solve a ‘foxer’ handcrafted by my sadistic chum and colleague, Roman. A complete ‘defoxing’ sometimes takes several days and usually involves the little grey cells of many readers. Don’t be shy. All are welcome to participate.

To fully defox the following geofoxer, identify all twelve locations plus the theme that links them.

  1. I looks like Atrani on the Amalfi Coast. Lovely place.

    Actual location on the Strada Statale Amalfitana, outside the Collegiata di Santa Maria Maddalena, looking west.

  2. Link – Dragons

    That restaurant on the left on Castle Street is the Golden Dragon and Atrani is on the river Dragone

  3. H looks like the Dragon Miniature Railway in Marple, Stockport, trying to find the exact spot.

  4. E is the Short Solent at the Museum of Transport and Technology in Auckland. Wikipedia has Short Hythes flying the Dragon route to Hong Kong but not sure whether Solents did too.

    • The Short Solent is a red herring. The biplane right at the front is a de Havilland Dragon Rapide.

  5. I suspect C is Wawel Castle in Krakow. Has a dragon, along with a dragon statue which breathes fire when you text it, or at least did in about 2007.

  6. L. HL Dragon Fruit Eco Farm, Sepang, Selangor, Malaysia,101.7430224,3a,75y,184.85h,90.32t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sBjj2XYXnom2RXsliQ2OUgg!2e0!7i16384!8i8192?hl=en-GB

    ETA: Available food in the restaurant includes: “Dragon Fruit Enzyme Chicken, Carbonara Seafood Spaghetti with Dragon Fruit Bread Bowl, Grilled Prawn with Dragon Fruit Sauce, Dragon Fruit Smashed Potatoes and so on.”

    For beverage, we have Lokal series dragon fruit juice /smoothies. It is called as ‘Dragon Breath’. It is a must drink beverage for your excitement trip to Sepang. ”
