    Perfect score, except maybe for 5. Moravia is a good answer. The quiz I copied had an answer of Bohemia. However a quick bit of googling seems to indicate that it's a toss up area between Moravia and Bohemia, both are regions that currently occupy Czech Republic, historically it is not clear to me which answer is better. So I guess we have to say perfect score, well done.

    I agree Von ...... it's pointless to know where you are and what has already happened

    I guess it could be one of thousands of volcanic tropical (?) islands ...
    Monserrat, Conception, Stromboli?

    Nah, I'm just randomly guessing

    Well, from this island you can see Monserrat on a clear day. But this is a tough one. Unless you have already seen a pic, it would be hard to just guess.

    I have seen it written that Columbus visited this Island in 1493. Also, about 12-13,000 people live here.

    Nah .... unless its Easter Island or Rapa Nui, you've got me on this one! Even they are guesses.

    Well, don't know Rapa Nui, but Easter Island and Monserrat are thousands of miles apart.

    Anyways, the answer is Nevis, in the West Indies, Caribbean.
