Travel Quiz Questions and Answers

Is it just me or is everyone currently playing and hosting their own pub quiz right now? If you’re anything like me you’ve probably already got a weekly quiz going whether that be with family, friends or work colleagues. You might be taking it in turns to host the quiz or maybe (like my family) the winner has to host the next one. But, if its you’re turn to write the questions and it’s got you stumped then look no further! Of course, being an avid traveler, when it was my turn to write the family quiz I went for a travel theme. Below is my list of travel quiz questions and answers but be warned, some of these are pretty tricky so make sure you play with like minded people! No one in my family even managed to get half marks!
