Travel Quiz #3 - there are no answers posted yet but, having later Googled the answers, I got 7 out of 20 - tough! Numbers 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 18 & 20 correct. I think the next setter is going to have to make the quiz a bit easier than these first three.

I just realised I forgot to post the answers. Sorry about that. It is hard to know what is hard or easy when setting questions. When you know all the answers all the questions seem easy
