About This Quiz

Anyone who has traveled the world knows that culture shock will happen to one degree or another in any country. Some countries have austere religious rules. Some countries have strange local customs which you don't want to violate lest you be branded as rude. In some places, it just comes down to navigating the city streets.

Add to that one's need to change over to the local currency, the need to dress more or less like a local, and finding out what sights you want to see, and you've got a big challenge ahead of you.

What if we could add to this challenge? What if we could offer you a time machine (don't worry, we know a guy) that would transport you to the ancient city of your choice? Were you paying attention in high school history? Do you have any idea of where you'd want to go?

Don't worry. We won't pressure you. In fact, we're here to help. We have come up with a simple quiz you can take right now to determine where to go. We'll ask you about your past travels, where you are interested in going in our time, and what you like and dislike about travel. With that data, we can determine what ancient city you should visit in your time-traveling adventures!
