Are there any countries you struggle to place on a map?
I've got a good handle of most regions, but have trouble with a few places:
-Lithuania, Estonia and Latvia. I know where they are but always forget which is which.
-Some of the island nations of the Caribbean and Pacific.

Pretty good, I think. I might get confused with some small countries in Africa, or Asia though, but overall I think I wouldn't embarrass myself... Got a good education at schools

Overall quite good. I can place most countries on a map with little difficulty.

Central Africa would be a crapshoot for me. Otherwise I would expect to score quite well on a geography quiz.

I read atlas's for fun as kid, and signed up for geography quizzes all the time lol

I'd say 9/10 times I could probably pinpoint any country on the map or at worst generalize it to within a specific region

I am very good, I however have an issue with the Caribbean, Most are small islands.

I also have an issue placing countries in Oceania, also small islands.

I am not that good at geography.

For example, Austria and Australia: I've never been able to tell which is which
Maybe Austria is the one Down Under, close to Argentina?

I’m usually good at recognizing country shapes and naming capitals, but I don’t think it’s equal to being good at geography.
