Travel trivia: Caribbean islands and their neighbours

Posted on February 12th, 2011 by Laura Byrne Paquet in Travel Trivia

The Caribbean nation of Trinidad and Tobago is just off the coast of what country?

  • Cuba
  • Mexico
  • United States
  • Venezuela

Think you know the answer? Send it to me as a comment at the bottom of this post (one answer per contestant, please!). At the end of the week, I’ll draw one name from among all the people who answered correctly, and that person will receive this week’s prize: a digital travel alarm/thermometer donated by Hayworth Creative Public Relations.

Come back to Facing the Street tomorrow for another travel trivia question and another chance to win the travel alarm/thermometer. And if you can’t wait until then for your trivia fix, check out my husband Paul’s trivia site, (He provided this question, BTW.)

This contest closes at 5:00pm EST on Friday, February 18, 2011.

      Cool! I had a pen pal in England, but that wasn’t nearly as exotic. 🙂
