Question 1 of 10
1. After Jonnowales spent a day wandering the streets of Ulaanbaatar, admiring everything the city has to offer, he retired to his hotel room and sent his clothes to be dry-cleaned. A representative of the hotel's 24-hour dry cleaning service knocked on his door the next morning and apologised for ruining his suit by offering him a brand new 'deel'! Jonnowales was delighted as he had just obtained a traditional piece of clothing from which country? Hint


Question 2 of 10
2. Jonnowales, an avid traveller, visited Japan wearing his deel from pastures old. He tried the great variety of sushi on offer in Tokyo, but was a bit greedy! He managed to get Wasabi paste all over his deel, which he subsequently sent off to a kind lady in the dry cleaners. Well, Jonnowales was furious as it came back in a worse state than when he handed it in. The lady felt awful and bought Jonnowales a kimono to spare him the embarrassment of walking around in his birthday suit. The lady from the dry cleaning store also gave him some sort of sash! What is the name given to this sash? Hint


Question 3 of 10
3. Jonnowales had always wanted to visit the countries of the Pacific and decided to jump on a plane from Japan to New Zealand. Whilst eating his rather unappetising in-flight meal, the plane hit some turbulence and the coke that came with the meal ended up on his lap. Upon reaching New Zealand he had to send his clothes to the dry cleaners and his luck seemed to be out as the dry cleaners managed to lose them! The very kind Maori lady who owned the store gave Jonnowales a 'piupiu'. Jonnowales gave her a rather strange look as the store owner had just given him a skirt! From what is this Maori skirt made? Hint


Question 4 of 10
4. Jonnowales is a big fan of South East Asian cooking and decided to visit the country of Vietnam. Whilst there he enjoyed the nation's delicacies and missed out the less appetising offerings! It was so hot in Vietnam that Jonnowales decided to purchase a rather famous type of hat. What shape is this hat that could be seen worn by many of the workers on the Vietnamese paddy fields? Hint


Question 5 of 10
5. Jonnowales is partial to a curry now and again so he thought it would be a shame not to visit India! On the flight there however, the clumsy air steward dropped a bowl of chicken madras all over poor Jonnowales. Well, it was just impossible for him to spend the rest of the flight with curry stained clothes and the only spare clothing on the plane was a piece of female Indian clothing. Which of the following is Jonnowales considering wearing? Hint


Question 6 of 10
6. Whilst visiting India, Jonnowales wished to taste some of the famous Darjeeling tea. Just as he was about to take a sip he stumbled as he saw a big Bollywood star! His clothes were stained with the tea and he sent them to the dry cleaners. When he got them back it appeared as though they had shrunk and were now less than useless. The owner of the dry cleaners offered Jonnowales a very traditional Indian costume worn by men. Which of the following could it be? Hint


Question 7 of 10
7. Jonnowales had accrued a great collection of hats from his voyages to countries from around the world. Whilst in Israel on a blustery day, Jonnowales was wearing his flat cap and in a rather strong breeze the cap fell off into a muddy puddle. The flat cap was sent to a dry cleaners but the article of clothing was beyond salvation. As Jonnowales wandered through the streets of Jerusalem without his hat he saw a yarmulke for sale. What is a yarmulke (skull cap) also known as? Hint


Question 8 of 10
8. People were always telling Jonnowales that he is just too lazy! So, he plucked up the courage to enter a half-marathon during his visit to the Netherlands. After the ordeal, Jonnowales sent his sweaty trainers off to be cleaned. Well, as you guessed the trainers came back three sizes smaller than when he last saw them! It didn't matter because Jonnowales had a pair of wooden shoes in the cupboard of his traditional Dutch hotel room. What are these wooden shoes called? Hint


Question 9 of 10
9. When Jonnowales was travelling on the train from London, England to Edinburgh, Scotland, he got the urge to purchase a hot chocolate drink. On such a cold day, it would certainly be a welcome source of heat! I must point out at this juncture that Jonnowales is a klutz and ended up with a pair of trousers saturated in what would have been a delicious chocolate drink. When he arrived in Edinburgh he decided to go traditional and picked up a kilt. He also debated over whether or not to buy which of the following items of clothing, which derives its name from the Gaelic for 'purse'? Hint


Question 10 of 10
10. Even though Jonnowales loves travelling around the world there really is, to scandalously thieve the words from "The Wizard of Oz", 'no place like home'. So when Jonnowales arrived home to well, Wales, he saw many young girls going to school in traditional Welsh costume. Jonnowales checked his watch and it was March 1. What must be being celebrated in Wales? Hint

Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. After Jonnowales spent a day wandering the streets of Ulaanbaatar, admiring everything the city has to offer, he retired to his hotel room and sent his clothes to be dry-cleaned. A representative of the hotel's 24-hour dry cleaning service knocked on his door the next morning and apologised for ruining his suit by offering him a brand new 'deel'! Jonnowales was delighted as he had just obtained a traditional piece of clothing from which country?

Answer: Mongolia

Jonnowales decided to let the hotel off the hook regarding the ruination of his clothes due to their very kind gesture in handing him a deel, the fantastic traditional clothing that Mongolians are often seen wearing. Other central Asian peoples can also be seen wearing a deel, which are often made from silk or cotton.

In case you were wondering, Jonnowales is a very mean kind of guy and thus didn't leave a tip!
2. Jonnowales, an avid traveller, visited Japan wearing his deel from pastures old. He tried the great variety of sushi on offer in Tokyo, but was a bit greedy! He managed to get Wasabi paste all over his deel, which he subsequently sent off to a kind lady in the dry cleaners. Well, Jonnowales was furious as it came back in a worse state than when he handed it in. The lady felt awful and bought Jonnowales a kimono to spare him the embarrassment of walking around in his birthday suit. The lady from the dry cleaning store also gave him some sort of sash! What is the name given to this sash?

Answer: Obi

Well Jonnowales was smitten with his kimono and obi, and forgot all about his Mongolian deel that was ruined by the dry cleaners! There are many varieties of obi, which are the sashes that adorn the instantly recognisable kimono, the traditional dress of Japan.

The other three options of nigirizushi, makizushi and gunkanmaki are all popular varieties of sushi and can be eaten with wasabi, the accompaniment that Jonnowales seems to want to wear rather than eat!
3. Jonnowales had always wanted to visit the countries of the Pacific and decided to jump on a plane from Japan to New Zealand. Whilst eating his rather unappetising in-flight meal, the plane hit some turbulence and the coke that came with the meal ended up on his lap. Upon reaching New Zealand he had to send his clothes to the dry cleaners and his luck seemed to be out as the dry cleaners managed to lose them! The very kind Maori lady who owned the store gave Jonnowales a 'piupiu'. Jonnowales gave her a rather strange look as the store owner had just given him a skirt! From what is this Maori skirt made?

Answer: Flax

Well Jonnowales began wondering why this lady gave him a skirt, was it something he said? After this very strange encounter he faced the music and paraded his Maori flax skirt or piupiu to the rather amused crowds of the local town. Hey it must be better than wearing nothing, right?

Flax is a type of fibre crop that is used heavily in the creation of linen based clothing. This crop is also known as linseed and is recognised for the oil it supplies.
4. Jonnowales is a big fan of South East Asian cooking and decided to visit the country of Vietnam. Whilst there he enjoyed the nation's delicacies and missed out the less appetising offerings! It was so hot in Vietnam that Jonnowales decided to purchase a rather famous type of hat. What shape is this hat that could be seen worn by many of the workers on the Vietnamese paddy fields?

Answer: Conical

Jonnowales had always wanted one of these and it was well worth the visit to Vietnam just to get a conical hat! These hats, also known as rice hats or paddy hats, are made of straw with a chinstrap made of silk. In Vietnam, they call this hat the 'leaf hat' from the Vietnamese 'Nón lá'.
5. Jonnowales is partial to a curry now and again so he thought it would be a shame not to visit India! On the flight there however, the clumsy air steward dropped a bowl of chicken madras all over poor Jonnowales. Well, it was just impossible for him to spend the rest of the flight with curry stained clothes and the only spare clothing on the plane was a piece of female Indian clothing. Which of the following is Jonnowales considering wearing?

Answer: Sari

Such an awkward situation for Jonnowales to find himself in! The sari is a cloth strip of differing lengths that is wrapped around a female in various ways. It is usually wrapped around the body in such a way that the end of the cloth is thrown over one of the shoulders.

It is such a pity for Jonnowales that they didn't have a dhoti, laacha or pancha on board, as these are the names given to the traditional Indian costume for men in Hindi, Punjabi and Telugu respectively. For those interested in the situation, Jonnowales decided not to take the sari and moaned all the way to New Delhi!
6. Whilst visiting India, Jonnowales wished to taste some of the famous Darjeeling tea. Just as he was about to take a sip he stumbled as he saw a big Bollywood star! His clothes were stained with the tea and he sent them to the dry cleaners. When he got them back it appeared as though they had shrunk and were now less than useless. The owner of the dry cleaners offered Jonnowales a very traditional Indian costume worn by men. Which of the following could it be?

Answer: Kurta

The kurta can best be described as a very loose shirt that covers the upper body and drapes down to just above knee-height. In a fabulous example of traditionalism meeting modernism, the kurta is often worn along with a pair of jeans! There is a female version of the kurta known as the kurti.

The burqa, niqab and hijab are all various pieces of clothing worn by women in Arab nations such as Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Oman. In the age of easy travel and migration, these items of female clothing are seen all over the world.
7. Jonnowales had accrued a great collection of hats from his voyages to countries from around the world. Whilst in Israel on a blustery day, Jonnowales was wearing his flat cap and in a rather strong breeze the cap fell off into a muddy puddle. The flat cap was sent to a dry cleaners but the article of clothing was beyond salvation. As Jonnowales wandered through the streets of Jerusalem without his hat he saw a yarmulke for sale. What is a yarmulke (skull cap) also known as?

Answer: Kippah

The kippah doesn't usually cover the entirety of the top of the head like a flat cap; rather it covers a portion of the head. The source of Jewish law, the Talmud, appears to be the area from which the tradition of wearing the yarmulke comes. The quotation that indicates the need to wear the kippah is "cover your head in order that the fear of heaven may be upon you".

The kippah is now also a source of Jewish identification and the skull cap can be seen donned by people from all over the world!
8. People were always telling Jonnowales that he is just too lazy! So, he plucked up the courage to enter a half-marathon during his visit to the Netherlands. After the ordeal, Jonnowales sent his sweaty trainers off to be cleaned. Well, as you guessed the trainers came back three sizes smaller than when he last saw them! It didn't matter because Jonnowales had a pair of wooden shoes in the cupboard of his traditional Dutch hotel room. What are these wooden shoes called?

Answer: Clogs

Ah yes the humble clogs or as the Dutch call them, 'klompen'. The Dutch name for this type of footwear just seems to be perfect, almost onomatopoeic. The very traditional and all-wooden clog was often used to protect the feet of labourers in industrial and agricultural settings in the west of Europe.

Jonnowales couldn't wait to get home from his trip to the Netherlands so he could take part in some clogging (clog-dancing) competitions. Watch out, as Jonnowales could be appearing in an Eisteddfod near you in his traditional Dutch clogs! It'll be a sight to behold, I assure you. :)
9. When Jonnowales was travelling on the train from London, England to Edinburgh, Scotland, he got the urge to purchase a hot chocolate drink. On such a cold day, it would certainly be a welcome source of heat! I must point out at this juncture that Jonnowales is a klutz and ended up with a pair of trousers saturated in what would have been a delicious chocolate drink. When he arrived in Edinburgh he decided to go traditional and picked up a kilt. He also debated over whether or not to buy which of the following items of clothing, which derives its name from the Gaelic for 'purse'?

Answer: Sporran

The kilt, whilst originating in Scotland, is now seen as a symbol of Celtic pride with the article of clothing being worn in Wales and Ireland. Despite this the kilt is, and probably always will be, strongly associated with the Scots and the speakers of Scottish Gaelic.

The sporran is essentially for storage of items that would usually be put in a pocket. This is made necessary due to the lack of pockets in a kilt.
10. Even though Jonnowales loves travelling around the world there really is, to scandalously thieve the words from "The Wizard of Oz", 'no place like home'. So when Jonnowales arrived home to well, Wales, he saw many young girls going to school in traditional Welsh costume. Jonnowales checked his watch and it was March 1. What must be being celebrated in Wales?

Answer: St David's Day

The traditional costume of Wales for the younger females consists of a lengthy skirt made of wool and a blouse adorned with a shawl also made from wool. Usually the costume is made complete by the Welsh hat, which is similar to the top hat. The younger boys will generally wear a leek (Cenin) or a daffodil (Cenin Bedr), the latter of which is also worn by the girls. St David is the patron saint of Wales and he is remembered every year on the first day in March.

Jonnowales decided that it was time to go home, put his feet up and enjoy a good bowl of traditional Welsh cawl (type of soup). Hopefully he won't drop it over himself, we wouldn't want to go to the dry cleaners again. Would we?
