Question Do you know the world?

Do you want to find out how well you know the world?

I found this travel quiz on travelpod.
It shows you a map of the world which you are then asked questions on.
e.g. World Cities, Famous Places etc...
You click your mouse where you think the place is and the closer you are the more points you get. It also tells you how far away you are from the actual place as well.

You can also choose to do a quiz on Europe or Asia etc...

Have a go! Here is the address;

Traveler IQ Challenge

Have fun,

Beej

I was doing just fine....until I got to Carribean capitals. What's the use of knowing about places that are too expensive, too crowded with American tourists, yachts and cruise ships, and unreachable by motorcycle? (He says resentfully).

Smile Glad your all enjoying the quiz!

Hi All,

Glad your all enjoying the quiz!

I also have discovered that my geographical knowledge of Canada is non-existent... oh... and America!!

Oh well... I've not been there yet... that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!

Did OK here and there, until Micronesia et al. My arguement is that you can't ride there....

And it is "Micro" to small to find on that map.
