Thursday’s quiz

Thanks in anticipation to those who take up the challenge of posing the questions.

There is no need to follow the five-question format I used.

Anyone who stumps everyone will win a virtual batch of Anzac biscuits.

    J Bloggs

    (1) St Augustine of Hippo (and where was Hippo?)

    (2) – I assume he has visited every country in the world from the theme

    (3) Around the World in eighty days

    (4) Voyage

    (5) Can’t say for sure visited every continent except Antarctica and worked on every other continent except South America been there though Chile, Peru – Columbia. Venezuela

    Even more tricky I have been to countries that no longer exist – Also does going to Sarajevo and Belgrade in 1986 count as a visit to one country or two and since that trip also involved a weeks stay in Skopje that makes three or one?

    As an aside you remember that “What Kind of Kiwi are you” Kiwimeter thing that One News put together well a lot of people in my circle couldn’t answer the “Where were you born” question and in one case this was highly controversial and offensive to the person concerned

    The geopolitical world is a tricky place
