Easy ones (for people that have some capital knowledge aswell) colombo, manila, antanarivo, denpasar, copenhagen, douglas, and maybe kirkwall (clearly brittish, so it is just a matter of which island).

Have to admit, couldnt remember luzon though I knew what i was trying to remember, and didnt get bali... soo familiar but didnt click. I did get big island, newfoundland, tahiti, sumatra and gotland aswell though. But more guesses (newfoundland, sumatra and tahiti) and educated guesses for hawaii and gotland.

Hardsest ones (as in dont know the city or the island..) kyushu and hokkaido

Would have been stuck on 19 if an old girlfriend (surname, of course Anderson) hadn't once taken me to Gotland to search for her great-grandfather's grave. Missed the grave (found out later that generations back it was Andersson, a name as common as Smith over there) but found Visby to be the cutest town ever.

It's been a major transatlantic port for 500 years, the closest point in the Americas to Europe.

South-east of Australia? Anyway... NZ is not just one island. The biggest two are most known by North and South Island which is kind of general. I believe not a lot of people know their Māori-names.

Pretty rare on a geography quiz that both a clue and its answer are unknown to me, but that happened to me on this quiz a couple times. Time to do some internet searches.
