My X-Ray travel machine drops me on a high point in this coastal Chinese city, where I can peer in an easterly direction across the Formosa Strait towards Taiwan. Where am I?
After leaving China, my X-Ray Traveler now takes me to a very large city in Egypt. Again I'm on the coast, looking north to the blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Where am I?
Leaving the warmth of Egypt, my X-Ray Traveler now heads in a north-westerly direction until it alights in the county of Devon. I'm gazing up in wonder at the magnificent cathedral that originally dates back to the 12th century. A local tells me that I'm in the capital city of this county and the nearby river is called the Exe. Where am I?
After leaving the greenery of England, the X-Ray Traveler takes me on a very long ride. It seems we've gone half way around the world! I land in a coastal region and a friendly Aboriginal tells me I'm in north-western Western Australia. Because it is so hot, I head to the local hotel where a laconic barman won't tell me the name of this coastal town. All he cryptically says is, 'It is a former facial feature'. Can you help me work out where I am?
The X-Ray Traveler takes me back to Europe where I land gently near a water tower. The altimeter says I'm at 558m above sea level. A friendly local welcomes me to the highest point in her country, which she calls the 'Buurgplaatz'. She also tells me I'm in Luxembourg, which is very close to Germany, France and Belgium. Am I in Luxembourg?
I now zap across the Atlantic Ocean to North America. I land in a park in a very large city. A local starts talking to me and I think he's speaking Spanish. Realizing I don't understand, he kindly switches to English. He tells me that this city is on a high plateau and was originally built around Lake Texcoco by the Aztecs. Which city am I in?
Wow, that was a quick ride! I get out of the X-Ray Traveler and find I'm at the border between two states. One state even has an 'x' in its name. A friendly local in this small city tells me a tale of steamboats on the Red River. The city was founded in 1873 at the junction of two railroad lines. The name of the city is a portmanteau of these two states and another one nearby! Where am I?
Off I go again as the X-Ray Traveler takes me back across the Atlantic. As I skim over the countryside before landing, I recognize this region from watching a famous annual bike tour. I jump out of the traveler and greet the nearby farmer with a cheery 'bonjour!'. He tells me that I'm in near the city of a thousand fountains. I should enjoy the famous local cuisine but have unfortunately missed the renowned opera festival - the 'Festival international d'Art Lyrique'. Do you know where I am?
Another long trip and 'splash', the X-Ray Traveler has landed in shallow water at the edge of a river. I meet a local fisherman who, I think, tells me I'm in 'merryland' and then proudly announces this is the longest river completely in this state. It flows into Chesapeake Bay right by the Naval Air Station. I didn't quite catch the name of this stream but it sounded something like 'Pat's accent'. Can you help me work out which river he was talking about?
Bad news. The X-ray traveler has made some awful, unworldly sounds and has landed me in an 'unreal' place. I can hear Olivia Newton-John singing. Where could I possibly be? (An atlas will be of no help!)
