Yep - google is our friend.

Actually most of us get clues from the questions that are asked - mine were America, Missouri, Hotel then I tried your location and bingo, found it so if it's relatively close to a city/state you live in, it's easier to find then if it's something you've picked further away. Hope that helps you out Brenda

I find it most useful for the American ones. Much harder when someone's listed as just Australia or The Netherlands
