World Tourism Day is celebrated each year on September 27 by the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNTWO). 2020 has been a sombre year for us travellers; the pandemic has put a halt to our travel plans. The only thing I’m glad about is not seeing an abundance of travel photographs on my social media. Remember when everyone would be lost in the hills or the beach and called themselves a traveller when all they did was flood Instagram with the one vacation they took that odd summer? If you consider yourself a traveller, if you have travelled far and beyond, it is likely that you will know the answer to these simple questions. How about you take our World Tourism Day Quiz and see how much you know.
