Some countries are known for their food. Others their landmarks. Others, their booze (ahem looking at you Ireland.)
Not long ago a fun Reddit thread popped up prompting users to see if they could name and/or guess countries based on simply stating what they’re famous for the thread, which got over 2k+ upvotes in the AskReddit community, was as illuminating as it was funny.
u/PediK91 asked the AskReddit community:
“Without naming your country, what’s your country famous for?”
And I really enjoyed scrolling through the answers. Some are really obvious (“Vikings”) but others had me pause for a minute or two to figure out the country of origin. I’ve included both the easy ones and the tougher ones — can you figure them all out?
1. History buffs will know
The death of one person from our country started WW1 + the person responsible for WW2 was born here.
We haven’t found our plane…
We’ve pretty much figured out that it was the pilot committing suicide. He had a flight simulator rig at home where he had done the same flight path that we believe MH370 took based on radar and recovered pieces, and at the end he crashed his plane into the ocean. This is a good read if you have the time.
