Test Your World Knowledge

As an inquisitive person, and a person that loves to learn, I enjoy taking various quizes to test my knowledge. I thought it might be fun to post a quiz (or several?) on my blog to see how my readers do – and maybe provide a little travel inspiration as well. I’ll post the questions in this blog, and the answers in a following blog. Let’s see how you fare – and no googling, wikipedia research, or using any other internet tool!

1. Name three structures that were originally built for a World’s Fair, but then became permanent fixtures. (There are several that have either been moved or were destroyed by disaster later, which are acceptable answers).

2. As of the date of this blog post, which country has the most UNESCO World Heritage Sites?
a. Spain
b. Italy
c. France
d. China
e. India

3. Which Natural Wonder of the World spans across the border of Zimbabwe and Zambia?

4. Which is the only one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World still standing?

5. Which Big 5 animal is considered to be the most dangerous to humans?

6. The Bridge of Sighs is located in which European city?

7. In which country is Bibimbap a popular dish?

8. If you land in Schipol airport, you are in what country? (There are two names acceptable here – they’re both the same country. I’ll take the official or unofficial).

9. Which two countries are the only two in the world to span two continents?

9b. Which city is the only city in the world to span two continents?
