One thought for the other quiz takers though: would you consider KSA to be acceptable for the Qatar item? To be fair it's the nearest country and the only one it actually shares a land border with. When I reached that item, KSA was my first guess before I tried UAE. Anyway this was a great quiz!

When I read '"Question asking" British river' I couldn't get Tarn Hows out of my head - I did try Why just in case but it didn't click to spell it like that. Also Hawaiian doesn't have many letters so I just tried spelling them in different orders and got one pretty quickly!
