To ease your time sitting out the current COVID-19 crisis at home, we organised a quiz on Pinterest, called ‘Guess the destination’. Not in order to win something, but more in order to test your topographical knowledge and above all to be inspired for your next trip!

As of 20 March we have been posting pictures on Pinterest to keep up the good travel spirit while keeping safe and healthy! Now that the coronavirus measures are gradually being relaxed and phased out, we also complete this “Guess the Destination” quiz. Today is already the last day of the quiz. We hope that thanks to the quiz, your desire to travel is still in good health despite the coronavirus crisis.
