If you're feeling a little (or a lot) stir crazy and the travel bug is really starting to bite, we know how you feel. There's nothing like a dollop of healthy distraction to keep us dreaming about the future adventures we'll go on once the lockdown is lifted and that's where our weekly travel quiz comes in. Devilishly difficult and fun for all the family, the quiz questions have been compiled by teams across Original Travel from Finance (guess the currency) to Flights (those tricky three-letter airport codes). Pull up a chair, roll up your sleeves and test your travel knowledge against the experts. Good luck!
