35 Hidden Countries

Can you find 35 different countries hidden in the text that follows?

Many are easy but I bet you cannot get them all.

  1. “Don’t look back in anger,” many a wise man has said, including William Shakespeare who wrote “Much Ado about Nothing.”

  2. The captain asked the sargent in an email if he could plug and advertise the event.

  3. He had a broken yardstick and wore a jumper under his coat and a cap which protected him when the ice landed on his head.

  4. “Did you happen to go to London recently?” I enquired. “I visited the capital yesterday,” she replied, much in a hurry. “Well, what did you find?” I asked immediately.

  5. Nero was a famous Roman. “I am an emperor and a champion,” he declared.

  6. They visit the spa in the hotel and agree Celia should be the first to try the sauna.

  7. Can I, geriatric that I am, perform on Strictly? Only if I jive with Oti.

  8. Close your eyes and imagine a soap sud, an ibis on water, a fox cub, a snake on sand, or rabbit on grass?

  9. We need to bag other animals so can Ada catch some?

  10. Without a hitch I led the team, and I ran the race. We went to Bolton or way beyond that place.

  11. Because of his sins we deny him entry to the church. We should give him the formal ban I agreed last week.

  12. I would rather watch the man go lame than put him in that dismal taxi.

  13. That insane palace thief has escaped. We must phone Interpol and they will arrest him at the border.

  14. Apple trees produce blossom. A liar denies this fact.
