For today's Geo Quiz -- we're looking for four-letter words. Not BAD four letter words...this is the Geo Quiz after all.
But how many four-letter countries can you name?
It's a question that nagged David Jenkins one night:
"I couldn't sleep and I was just lying there and trying to think how many Four letter countries are there are in the world and eventually I got up and I looked at the atlas and made the list and I thought to myself well I wonder if anyone's been to all of these countries and I thought well why not give it a go?"
"Give it a go" he did...
We'll hear more about his very unusual trip when we reveal our list of four-letter countries.
Time to answer our four-letter Geo Quiz now.
And who better to turn to for the answer than the author of the book "The Four Letter Countries: The Zany Adventures of the Alphabet Traveller."
