  1. That was a fun quiz, Rasma! I got all correct except #13. I was fooled by, “It is the summer residence of the country’s royal family” as Portugal hasn’t had a monarch for over 100 years. However if I’d read the question carefully I should have recognised the Sintra Mountains, so I have to take the blame 🙂
