Race Across The World quiz

Whilst we aren’t currently able to travel, we can certainly dream and be inspired for future destinations and trips. All of us at C The World have become a little obsessed with BBC Two's Race Across The World programme. I’m sure many of you are watching it too, following the epic journeys throughout Central and South America.

If you haven't watched it yet, we highly recommend it - you can watch it from the beginning on BBC iPlayer. The show inspired us to create a Race Across The World themed quiz...see how much you've learnt watching the show! The Answers are at the bottom of the page:
