Travel Trivia Tuesday: Rio!

28 Feb

As an avowed trivia geek, I decided to start adding a weekly travel quiz to the blog. It’s not just a test of knowledge, because I plan to include photos, information and fun facts about destinations around the world. Hopefully, it will be a nice way to present some travel content in an entertaining way.

Please be patient as I work to find the best way to include quizzes – the format may change a bit from week to week until I settle on a design I like.

This week, on the heels of Carnival, a quick look at the city of Rio.

Good luck and enjoy!

  1. Nice idea. I think I had as much fun as you might have when you thought about adding trivia to your blog posts. Way to go man. Cheers!

  2. Love this idea for a quiz. I got em all right, but I am “in the know” as a Trip Planner for Rio at VIP Tour Group. We are in the middle of preparing and selling FIFA 2014 World CUP Packages and then we dont breath until after the 2016 Rio Olympics. I would love you to do another one for World Cup if your game!
