Where am I?

Using the following clues (the map above is purely decorative) in combination with Street View and tools such as MAPfrappe, work out my location.

Although Roman, THC’s chief puzzlewright, would be interested to know how long it takes you to solve this solo foxer, he’d rather you didn’t put spoilers or solutions in the comments.

Today I’m in a settlement with a memorable two-word name (both words can be found in the first-half of an English dictionary). About five miles from the shore of the nearest B.O.T., I’m on a narrow road probably named after a plant genus. The road has no road markings, pavement, or street lights. A stone’s throw from a tennis court, a solar panel array, and a property that takes its name from a Charles Dickens novel, I’m in a (de facto) colony. That colony’s Danish links explain the name of its capital (a city of around 14500 people that, unless I was a very strong/confident swimmer, I couldn’t reach without the aid of a boat or aeroplane). I’m equilongitudinous with a strait named after a man who circumnavigated the globe in the 17th Century, and equilatitudinous with a country that hit the headlines in late July.

You’re probably in the right place if you can see…

  • A peninsula
  • A large seashell
  • A rust-nibbled Suzuki Sidekick
  • Stenocereus
  • Shuttered windows
  • One person
  • A clock
  • The words “NO TRESPASSING”
  • A mountain that shares a name with a French city

I’m not in Pont-à-Mousson.

(Last week I was here)


  1. A clock ahoy!

    “What’s a memorable name? What does that mean?”… ten minutes later .. “oh, yep, that’s a memorable name”
