Travel Scavenger Hunt

This week I have a post over at Hilltown Families on Scavenger Hunts. It is one of a series of "Travelling with Kids" posts (here, and here). 

I am looking for creative ideas for a travel scavenger hunt for the trip Zoe and I are about to embark on with our friend Gina. 

Here is what I have so far:

Draw a picture or take a photograph of the Dutch Flag
Draw a picture or take a photograph of the Greek Flag
Draw a picture or take a photograph of the Austrian Flag
Draw a picture or take a photograph of the Czech Republic Flag
Take a picture of a Tulip
Take a picture of a wooden shoe
Step onto a canal boat
How do you say “hello” in Dutch
How do you say “hello” in Austrian
How do you say “hello” in Czech
How do you say “hello” in Greek
Collect a menu in Dutch
Collect a menu in Austrian
Collect a menu in Czech
Collect a menu in Greek
Buy a stamp in Austria
Buy a stamp Holland
Buy a stamp Greece
Buy a stamp the Czech Republic
Take a picture of a mountain?
Who was Motzart?
Take a picture of a castle?
Press a flower/leave from Holland
Press a flower/leave from Greece
Take a picture of a school bus
Take a picture of a train

Here is where all you creative families can help. Give Zoe (and mum) a challenge. What can we look for, photograph, draw or try etc. Please submit all your ideas and we’ll post the final scavenger hunt and the results!

Don't try to photograph a mountain in the Netherlands. We have just one and it is not very impressive.
You could try to find a dijk with water on one side and land on the other side at a lower level than the water.
