Geoguessr - are you a geography sleuth?

Where do you want to go today?
A bit of light relief here:

A google maps based game and lots of fun: basically, you are dropped into a random location on Google Street View and then you have to guess where you are!

I think my top score is around 9000. I want to beat it. Oh no, there goes my productivity!

One needs a some basic detective skills but checking out where a car's steering wheel is, whether the signage is in English, vegetation type (Palm trees or conifers?) should allow you a chance to narrow it down to the correct continent. That's a start.

I got the follow score though I am sure many of you will beat it!

Having another go....
