I don't usually do quizzes like these, but since I just got back from Orlando. This quiz also seems to think there are 4 cities in Africa and 4 in the Middle Easy. Ah, ethnocentricity.

Now, if someone would just invite me to these yellow places...

Well, if you come down to Melbourne, Australia I can offer you at least a tent to sleep in... ;)

But I give you fair warning - you may want to stay! ;)

We'd be very happy to have you over in Scandinavia (Sweden), perhaps at one of our .net user group meetings? =)

The Middle Easy sounds like a great place to visit. Have you been to Left Easy and Right Easy as well? :)

As for one of the yellow places, specifically the Middle (B)east, I'll be in my hometown Lebanon from the last week of August until mid-September. I'd be happy to have you over :)

To bad you only consider cities as the major points of destinations. I've seen more of the United States by motorcycle and small airplane than most people will ever see in a life time.

My recommendation, also list major geographic regions. You should not only add say Rocky mountians, but also Bitter Root and Big Horn moutain ranges in North America (You only know those by name if you've actually crossed them or knew what you were looking at). You should also list major crossing points such as the Mackinaw bridge in Michigan and Sault. St. Marie and Nigrara Falls on the Border. You should also list bodies of water like the Adriatic, Great Lakes and Oceans.

Simply put, you don't have to be well traveled if you only go to the major cities of the world. I just spent two weeks in the European Alps. The only two cities I saw on your list was Munich and Salzburg, and that was for an evening. The rest of time was spent crossing major passes between German, Austria, Switzerland, Slovenia and Italy, not to mention some feet soaking time Croatia.

I'm not sure you need to go as far as ethnocentricity. It's likely plain stupidity. The five cities listed for Canada represent only 4 provinces out of 10 and none of the three territories.
