Where in the World: Oceania

This is going to be painful. I really thought there was only about 3 or 4 countries here, so finding out there was 14 is really bad.

  1. Australia 2. New Zealand 3. Marshall Islands 4. Palau (I would love to say I know this, but it came up on a quiz I was watching) 5. Solomon islands 6. Papya New guinia 7. Samoa (thanks World Rugby) 8. Tonga 9. Fiji 10. Christmas Island

So 10 doesn’t seem that bad as long as they are all countries and not part of a set of islands that is a country under a different name if you see what I mean. I am confident on 4. There is no point we looking at the map, to see if that jogs anything because the only thing I have going on in my head now is Jamacia

Lets see what I missed

  1. Micronesia 2. Nauru 3. Kiribati 4. Tuvalu 5. Vanuatu
    Yes I did miss 5 Christmas Island is not a country (it is in Oceania though) 9 out of 14 isn’t too bad though
  1. Australia 8. Papya New Guinia
  2. New Zealand 9. Fiji
  3. Tonga 10.
  4. Marshall Islands 11.
  5. Solomon Islands 12.
  6. Palau 13. Samoa
  7. Christmas Island 14.

In case its not clear, apart from 2 I did just guess where the others might be

Well that was embarressing I got 2 in the right place, Australia and New Zealand. Did you do any better than me? 14% which I believe is my worst to date.

Since I knew this one was going to be bad. Next week is Northern America, because I know we have missed a few countries.

Although, I have been told there are 11 countries in this one.

If you would like to join in only one rule don’t google and if you want an extra challenge do a post on a country you get wrong.

    This random and unrelated, but somehow related, so I’m just going to share. After my grandmother died, by grandfather would travel to different islands in Oceania every winter to spend the winter there while Canada was covered in snow. Every summer when he came back to see us, he brought us back little vials of sand from the beaches and labeled them with the islands they came from. This post reminded me of him and the stories he used to share with us.

    Also, to do with your post about North America coming next – what you’ve labeled as #1 is actually not a part of North America. Greenland is a territory of Denmark, and thus, considered a part of Europe.

    • That is a sweet story, do you still have them?

      Number 1 could be Greenland, I will find out next week, however we did check this and geographically Greenland is in Northern Anerica, its culture is more European because of the link to Denmark. While technically not a country, its really big, so I didn’t feel like I could miss it off
