63 - but I'm at a serious disadvantage because so many are US centred. If you replace US specifics with stonehenge, tower of London, buckingham palace etc, then I might stand a chance. And maybe I should get out more as well - do you think?

Hey ! I don't live in the US neither !!

But then again, I am very adventurous and strive for road trips...

Nice try !!

Love this one...mainly because it proved to me that I'm not near as boring as I thought either. Don't remember exactly how many I'd done, though.

Good luck on the interview...even though I don't know you personally!

Did you see POTC II? If so remember the scene when Jack's crew saw the black mark on his hand and spit and waved their hands and twirled around a few times? I just did that when I read #6!!!
