About This Quiz

So many places, so little time! But do you know where you want to go, swim or climb?

With the advent of technology these days, traveling has become an affordable and reachable goal for people from different walks of life. Before, it was only the rich and affluent who could buy airline tickets and fly far from home, going on to the next destination on a whim. These days, budget airlines and travel sites have made airline traveling an affordable option for average people with average income. That's such a welcome development.

As a result, many people are now interested in seeing new places, sampling new foods and discovering new things they had previously seen only on the TV screen or read about on the internet. As a result, many people are now familiar with the geography of many areas of interests.

Whether these areas are of local importance or international curiosity, people these days have developed a higher level of knowledge, awareness and sophistication when it comes to geography. Some even reach trivia levels in the information they want to store in their brains!

So let's put that trivia and knowledge to good use here, shall we? We'll show you images of certain places and other travel stuff, and you may answer to your heart's delight.
