Can You Guess the Country When Given the Countries Bordering It?
by J. Reinoehl

How well did you do in World Geography? Take this quiz to test your knowledge.

One of the criticisms of Americans is that we know little about the world outside of our own borders. And, compared to the rest of the developed world, Americans do little travel outside of our own country. Although some may argue that this is because people who live in the US have little interest in the rest of the world, the fact is that travel outside of the US is quite expensive. For us, traveling from one state to the next is similar to Europeans traveling between countries. It's just cheaper to stay on our own continent.

But assuming that one day you would like to travel, it might be helpful to know a bit about where you're going. If you haven't been interested enough to learn about the world before now, this might be a good time to bone up on your world geography. So, if you know what countries border the US (we hope that's an easy one), what countries surround Bolivia, and what countries border Australia (huh, is that a trick question?), then this quiz is for you.

Can you ace this world geography quiz?
