This week, we’re introducing a new type of travel brainteaser: a Friday Word Puzzle. We’ll give you a category and the first letters of five words that fall into that category, and you fill in the rest. Here’s an example:

cities in italy


To solve this puzzle, you would fill in five Italian cities that start with the given letters. Here’s one possible solution:

Keep in mind that there may be more than one possible response for each letter; you could have filled in Siena instead of Salerno or Parma instead of Pisa. As long as your response fits into the given category, we’ll count it.

Ready to try it yourself? Here’s this week’s challenge:

Enter your list of cities in the comments below. You have until Monday, March 17, at 11:59 p.m. ET to post your response. We’ll keep all comments private until then. On Tuesday morning we’ll choose one winner at random to receive an IndependentTraveler.com travel mug. Note: Although all are welcome to play, we can only ship prizes to the Continental U.S.

Editor’s Note: This contest has ended. The winner is Jeannette, who has won an IndependentTraveler.com travel mug. Congratulations! Check out her winning entry below.
