Join us for our travel trivia nights across the USA


Did you know the know the Congo River is the deepest on the planet? Or, that Liechtenstein is the only country in the world named after the people who purchased it? They say you learn something new every day...

This November, we're inviting all the brainiacs out there to celebrate the launch of our latest edition of The Travel Book. We're sponsoring a host of trivia events across the US, from San Francisco to NYC – so why not come along and test your travel knowledge? Each night one lucky trivia master will win a free copy of The Travel Book, which takes readers on a journey through every country in the world from A-Z.

Bring a buddy and come on down – coupons, additional prizes and a good time are guaranteed!
