Travel abroad is often a journey back through time. Ancient ruins are scattered throughout the world and offer a glimpse of the great civilizations that preceded us. Visiting these sites is a fantastic travel experience. Read about them in advance. Prepare an itinerary that doesn’t cram in too many places in a limited time. Bring a journal to record your thoughts and observations. And, of course, consult with a travel doctor for travel vaccinations and important travel safety advice, before your departure.
Here’s a quiz, a little harder than our first one, but still within reach. Please write your answers to the 3 quiz questions in the comments section below. In a week or so, correct answers will appear in the comments section of the next quiz and on Facebook. The first contestant to respond correctly will be publicly congratulated.
