Final clue was rather tricky. I know the US has many Plymouths, but took a while to recall Springfield.

I'd heard it before and knew it was something to do with the Simpsons but as I have never watched that show I tried Smithfield and a couple of near misses and never arrived at Springfield.

Perhaps instead of "34 places" in the US, one would better understand 34 city/town names--because by using places, the clue is incorrect as it could refer to Springfield Library, Springfield town hall, etc. thus putting that number far higher than 34.

Great quiz. Had them all but had to go back for Stasbourg - because I couldn't remember the spelling when I got to it - went back and never did get it spelled correctly before time ran out. Though I tried the "bourg" ending I think I did it with two "s" each time, unlike "berg" and "burg" and "burgh" which I tried with single and double s... ah well, at least American English isn't alone in its too many variations on spelling!
