The Foxer

Warm-up Foxer (Where am I?)

I'm on a busy coastal road. I'm in a country that has no stripes on its flag. There's a silver two-car electric multiple unit emerging from a tunnel 20 metres to the NW of me. I'm 5 miles from a Decade Volcano. I'm at the same latitude as an African square declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Eighties. I'm in a country that's above Italy in the World Rugby rankings. The nearest level crossing is 500 metres away. I can see a sign aimed at litter bugs. I'm just about to be passed by a white no.66 bus with an unusually attired chap behind the wheel.

Feature Foxer

Identifying all twelve locations in today’s enlargeable geofoxer will be tricky unless you figure out the theme that connects them.
