1- If you want to get a glimpse of the Higgs-Boson particle or rather the complex it is in - CERN - where would you go to get a tour of the place from a casual visitor's viewpoint - don't expect to see the elusive Higgs-Boson however!

2- What two regions of France are reputed to produce the very best black truffles? One starts with a Q?

3- Where is Bavarian King 'Mad' Ludwig buried? (city and name of church).

4- What are the two largest by seating capacity soccer (football) stadiums in Europe?

5- What are the five largest islands in the Mediterrean in terms of square kilometres and give them in order?

6- This OTC pain reliever in Britain is illegal in the U.S. - It comes mixed with aspirin or acetephemenon (sp?) - what are the two pills called? (Not technically OTC because you have to go to the pharmacist and ask for them which are always readily given with a paucity of questions IME - first stop off the plane in London airports it's over to Boots to get my meds!)

7- QE II graces stamps in all part of the U.K. but she also graces stamps in how many other European colonies or dependencies of the U.K. - there are six at least it seems?
