Geography Test: Where am I? Trivia Questions

1. Ralph knew that kyleisalive was planning to head from his home in Canada to take a European holiday, so he headed to the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, site of the easternmost point of Canadian land. What is the name of this location?

From Quiz
Where's Kyle?

Answer: Cape Spear

Cape Spear, on the Avalon Peninsula, is the easternmost point of North America (not counting Greenland, if you are inclined to consider it part of North America), with a longitude of 52 degrees 37 minutes West. It was named 'Cabo da Experança' (Cape of Hope) by Portuguese explorers, which became 'Cap d'Espoir' when the French settled there, which gradually evolved into the present name. The northernmost point of Canada is Cape Columbia, on Ellesmere Island in the territory of Nunavut; the westernmost point is Boundary Peak, near the southern end of the border between the Yukon and the US state of Alaska; the southernmost piece of land is Middle Island, in Lake Erie, Ontario. Ralph enjoyed the view from Cape Spear before heading back to the centre of St. John's, where a careful check of recent departures from St. John's International Airport led him to conclude that his next step should be a flight to London.

2. If I was in the world's first Garden City, able to view the first example of a roundabout in this country and also see an abundance of relatively rare black squirrels, just where on Earth would I be?

From Quiz Children of Terra Ask: Where On Earth Are We?

Answer: Letchworth, England

To give it its proper and official title, Letchworth Garden City, would really have given the game away! Founded in 1905 based on the principles of Social reformer Ebenezer Howard, Letchworth was designed to incorporate the benefits of town and country living. The roundabout, built in 1909, was the first of its kind on a public road, and can still be seen today. It was originally named Sollershott Circus. Black squirrels, although not uncommon on other continents, are fairly rare and concentrated mainly around the Letchworth/Hitchin/Stevenage area of England, though they are spreading fast due to the dominant gene of the black versus grey squirrel. All the other options are also Garden Cities, based on the layout and planning of Letchworth. Just in case you haven't guessed...it is also my very own home town! (chears58)

3. A wild place of tors, Gorse, heather and wild ponies. And an old prison. Which place in England is this?

From Quiz Pi's What's Where in Haiku

Answer: Dartmoor

Dartmoor is indeed a wild place, with a climate of its own. Situated to the northeast of the coastal city of Plymouth in Devon, it can be bright and sunny down on the coast and impenetrably foggy up on the Moor. One of the great landmarks of Dartmoor is the grim prison at Princetown, originally built to house prisoners of the Napoleonic wars, and a sight to sink anyone's heart on approach. It is still in use. The natural scenery of Dartmoor is stunningly beautiful, by turns golden with gorse and purple with heather, roamed by wild ponies and sheep. The 'tors' are the hills of Dartmoor, many of which are marked by huge granite outcrops. Question by Invinoveritas

4. The first known North American explorers migrated across a land mass between Siberia and Alaska during the last Ice Age. What name did Swedish botanist Eric Hulten give to this land mass in 1937?

From Quiz Following in Famous Footprints

Answer: Beringia

The formation of glaciers had lowered sea levels by 100 to 150 meters, creating a land bridge. Hulten, who lived from 1894 to 1981, coined the name of Beringia for it in his doctorate thesis at Lund University in 1937. As well as studying botany, Hulten was also an Arctic explorer. Although it is not disputed that a migration from Siberia to the northern part of America took place at some stage, when it occurred and whether it was by foot overland or by boat across the sea remains unclear. Scientists in the fields of archeology, physical anthropology, DNA analysis, linguistics and other disciplines continue to study and theorize. Team member mlcmlc thanks you for your assistance and will head off for somewhere warmer now.

5. I've just woken up and quite literally smelled the coffee. Too much Kurt Cobain and Frasier Crane for me. I Gotta Get Outta Here! I'm driving 225 kilometres north, to which city around 15 kilometres west of Burnaby?

From Quiz I Gotta Get Outta Here!

Answer: Vancouver

So I've left Seattle, the largest city in not only Washington state but the entire northwest of the US. I've headed north on the I-5 and driven through Everett and Bellingham, across the Canadian border into British Columbia, and finally to the seaport city of Vancouver. Robson Square, the Sun Tower and the art deco Marine Building are some of the sights I hope to see during my stay.

6. This geographic feature was once thought to be a "land bridge" that connected what is now known as Cape Dezhnev and Cape Prince of Wales. It is also known as Imakpik. What is this global feature?

From Quiz Where Am I? Name That World Link.

Answer: Bering Strait

The Bering Strait connects (or separates, depending on how you look at it) the easternmost point of the Asian continent to the westernmost point of the North American continent. It is about 53 miles wide and connects the Chukchi Sea to the Bering Sea.

7. So there you are at your first stop at the historic ruins of an Incan temple called El Fuerte de Samaipata. It is situated in the Andean foothills. In what country are you?

From Quiz So There You Are

Answer: Bolivia

El Fuerte, as it is commonly known, is located in the Florida province of Bolivia. These ruins are unique in that they include buildings from three cultures: the Incan, the Spanish and the Chanes. One of the most unusual features there are ancient carved lines in the earth called El Cascabel. These lines have been explained as runways for alien space craft, lines pointing at Halley's Comet when it passed in 1066 A.D., and other various astronomical occurrences.

8. During my first ever work-related trip, I lived for four months in the city of Breda in the province Noord-Brabant. Less than 60 kilometers (38 miles) to the south you'll find the city of Antwerp. In which country did I stay?

From Quiz Follow in My Footsteps, Part I

Answer: The Netherlands

Breda is in the southwestern part of the Netherlands, only a few miles from the border to Belgium. Antwerp is a Belgian city.

9. This area is not recognized "officially" but has also gone by the name of the "Devil's Triangle". Flight 19 disappeared here.

From Quiz What a Strange Place This Is!

Answer: The Bermuda Triangle & Bermuda Triangle

The Bermuda Triangle is an area off of the southeastern Atlantic coast of the United States and has been blamed for the disappearance of many ships and planes, most notably Flight 19, which departed from the U.S. Naval Station in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida as a navigational training flight. More information came be obtained on this unusual historic event here: http://www.history.navy.mil/faqs/faq15-1.htm Some theories as to why strange occurrences happen in this imaginary area are U.F.O. abductions and that the continent of Atlantis had sunk under this body of water.

10. To celebrate the Centenary of Federation, which Australian state capital city opened "Federation Square"?

From Quiz Where am I?

Answer: Melbourne

The Commonwealth of Australia came to be on 9th May, 1901 when Australia's first Federal Parliament opened in Melbourne. To celebrate the centenary of this event in 2001, the Victorian Government proposed to open a new centre-piece for the city of Melbourne, aptly named "Federation Square". It opened almost two years later, in late 2002. Amongst numerous mobile cafes, Melbourne's Federation Square is the home of the Harry (oops..) Ian Potter Center, and the National Gallery of Victoria.

11. This town has windmills, tulips, parades and it even has Sinter Klaas visit in the wintertime. It's in the United States in the Midwest. Wouldn't you (wooden shoe) know the name of the town? What is it called?

From Quiz Where in the World is Linkan?

Answer: Holland

Holland, Michigan is known for their "Tulip Festivals" in May. The The Tulip Festival has three parades during the week. One is for anyone who wants to scrub the streets, Holland keeps them really clean for parades. The second parade is for all the students in the surrounding elementary schools. The third parade is the "Parade of Bands". There are usually over 50 bands that come from everywhere to play.

12. Moron, Bulgan, and Khovd are the three towns located in which landlocked Asian country?

From Quiz Where Are These Cities and Towns in the World?

From Quiz Where's Kyle?

Answer: Teddington Lock

While the larger ships seldom travel further upstream than Tower Bridge (although in the 18th and 19th centuries the stretch from there to London Bridge was lined with wharves, and full of traffic), the Tideway continues upstream past Putney Bridge to Teddington Lock. The stretch upstream from Putney Bridge is an excellent area for boating activities, and is the home of many rowing clubs, as well as being the site of the famous race known simply as 'The Boat Race', contested annually between crews from the universities of Oxford and Cambridge. Teddington Lock (actually, a complex of three locks and a weir) is located in the London suburb of Ham, about 15 km southwest of the centre of the city. All of you Monty Python fans may recognise it as the site where the 'Fish-Slapping Dance' skit was recorded in 1971.

From Quiz Where on Earth are the Kilted Kangas?

Answer: Arthur's Seat

This dormant volcano is just off the Royal Mile and is situated in Royal Holyrood Park. The park is attached to Holyrood Palace and Arthur's Seat is the highest peak of the group of hills in the park. There is a hill fort at the top of the peak and the panoramic views over the city from the top are amazing. It has been said that there is some connection to King Arthur but there is no solid proof of this. It is also mentioned in many books and poems by authors such as Ian Rankin, Robert Louis Stephenson and Mary Shelley to name but three. It is a must see site to visit if you are ever in what in my opinion is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Submitted by scotsbluebell.

17. When I visited the Magyar capital, I had the chance to watch a football game of Ferencváros. However, my most vivid memory is when I tried goulash, a delicious stew. Which country does the capital that I was visiting belong to?

From Quiz Oh, the Places!

Answer: Hungary

Located at the geographical heart of Europe, Budapest was actually three separate cities until 1873, when Buda and Óbuda from the west side of the Danube, united with Pest from the east side to form one larger city. The story of Budapest starts much earlier however, when the Romans took over a settlement named Ak-ink from the Celtic tribe Eravisci and renamed it Aquincum in the late first/early 2nd century AD. Aquincum became the capital of the Pannonia province and corresponds to the Óbuda part of Budapest. Óbuda, which means Old Buda, is now considered a district of Budapest. Buda became the capital of Hungary in 1361, but it fell under the Ottoman Empire's rule for nearly 150 years during the 16th and 17th century. Pest, the final piece of Budapest, is the sole part in the east side of Danube, yet it covers much more ground. Upon the construction of the Széchenyi Chain Bridge in 1849, the three cities were not separated by the river anymore, setting up the ground for their eventual unification. Nowadays, Budapest has a metropolitan population 3.3 million people, making it the largest city in Hungary. Any football (soccer) fan will have the chance to catch a game or two, since there are more than half a dozen teams in Budapest, the most famous of which are Ferencváros and Honvéd. If you're a fan of Formula 1, an F1 Grand Prix takes places every year in late July in the Hungaroring circuit less than 20 km from Budapest, with the first one having been held in 1986. Goulash gets its name from the word "gulyás", which means herdsman. It is the most famous Hungarian dish, and it is a stew that contains meat, usually beef, as well as noodles, vegetables and spices, though there are several different versions of the recipe. Goulash is also consumed in other countries near Hungary, such as Austria, Germany, Croatia, Serbia and the Czech Republic. If you visit Hungary, don't miss the chance to try a hot dish of goulash!
