Holiday abroad anyone?

As some of you said you’d like to do more of the virtual O here’s one somebody else made earlier. No cryptic shenanigans just straight forward questions to answer thanks to an Italian club in Trentino.

Question form (in English – they’ve cottoned on they’ve got an international audience) has links to the O map and Google imagery. Too late to submit the form now to take part in the competition but do it anyway with a big THANKYOU! on the bottom.

Visit https://oritrentino.it/virtual-cpop/ for more of these but you’ll have to translate the questions.
