A few things to take home from last night's episode.

First, spotted that Sandi made the classic error of describing Big Ben as the clock rather than the bell.

Second, for those interested in the jigsaw montages, you might like to know that Dave Gorman did a similar thing on his TV show Modern Life is Goodish.

Third, be careful if you are looking up All Nippon Airways. There also happens to be a homoerotic Japanese manga comic called All Nippon Air Line, a story which makes far too many references to its acronym. When it was sold in Japan the front cover had the word "ANAL" on it several times, but when it was sold in English they had to make alterations, removing the words, but also offering a dust jacket that still had "ANAL" on it for those who wanted it.

Another quibble: Iceland isn't "scandi". Neither is Finland. They are Nordic countries.

Scandiavia consists of three countries, and three countries only: Denmark, Norway, and Sweden.
