Travel Trivia Time

The Easter brought along with it a wonderful dinner with friends and family. Of course, any gathering would be remiss with engaging conversation. The topic at hand? Travel of course. I was thoroughly entertained with the various bits of trivia and factoids that everyone shared. Allow me to share those that I remember..:)

1. Which city is sinking faster than Venice? Bangkok! (Who knew? It apparently sank an inch back in 2004).

2. Apparently American Airlines saved about $40,000 in the 80’s by eliminating one olive in each 1st class served salad. A little goes a long way indeed!

3. The world’s oldest airline is KLM, established in 1919.

4. Portugal is the world’s largest producer of cork.

5. Tennessee is bordered by no less than 8 states!

6. The continent with the most countries represented in the UN is no other than Africa.

7. The oldest city in the world is Damascus. It’s been around since 8000 B.C.

8. The tallest building in the world is Taipei 101 standing at 1667 feet.

9. British Airways passengers consume in a year:

41 Tons of Chicken
6 Tons of Caviar
22 Tons of Smoked Salmon
550,000 boxes of chocolate

10. The American Airlines packet of Peanuts says: Open packet. Eat Nuts 😀
