Ehm at question 2 dont you take the ferry TO the east, or the from the WEST ? or is my brain not working. Where you are coming from lies to the west of where you are going to. I was stuck at this one for ages (then a little while at the first one that wasnt a capital haha, ow it doesnt need to be capitals.... then after the merry island i ran out of time..)

I'll add a little more time. Question 2 is written from the perspective of the origin. Since the ferry port is EAST of the capital, then it works. It was weird phrasing I admit, but it was written that way throughout.
