I’ll admit, I’m a bit of a Facebook junky. And of all the great applications they have, I can spend hours on TravelPod’s Traveler IQ Challenge. Basically, you’re given a teeny tiny map and asked to identify where on it cities and tourist attractions are located. They range from easy (New York, NY) to somewhat difficult (Lisbon, Portugal) to holy-mother difficult (Dili, East Timor.)
You get points based on how close to the actual location you are … which sounds easy enough but it’s not. You can barely see Greece on the map, so trying to pinpoint the Acropolis is pretty difficult. The closest I’ve come is 50 km from the location for Winnipeg. And if the game itself wasn’t a big enough blow to your travel ego, you need a certain amount of points to go on to the next level.
If you’re on Facebook, I recommend you get it an test your travel know-how!
