Updated on 11/10 at 7:30 a.m. ET:

Matt revealed that he was located at the "top of Europe" this morning, standing at the Jungfraujoch research center in the Swiss Alps.

Did you guess correctly from Matt's teasers? If not, here's a quick breakdown of how you could have been clued in.

"Time is of the essence" hinted at Switzerland, which is famous for its clocks and watches; "train our sights" referred to the fact you need to take a train to get there. The clue also gave a nod to the very first Where in the World journey in 1998, where Matt landed in Cairo, in front of the Sphinx (this morning, Matt broadcast live from the Sphinx Observatory).

As for the picture clue below, it showed research equipment used by scientists at the high-altitude research center.

Were you correct? Natalie was about as close as anyone this morning when she guessed a location in the Swiss Alps where you need to take a train!
