Travel Trivia? That’s an adventure – for your mind. Even if you can’t live your dreams by physically traveling the world at the moment, you can still put your travel knowledge to the test in an upcoming travel trivia game.
About the Trivia Game
App in the Air is the host of this game that can be played from the comfort of your own home. Virtual meetups are usually hosted via Zoom on Tuesdays at 3 PM EST. This game is a way for App in the Air to connect travelers and travel enthusiasts and give them a chance to win prizes.
App in the Air is an app that is especially useful for those who prefer to live out of a suitcase. It can keep track of your travel itineraries, including boarding passes and frequent-flier programs.
The director of marketing for App in the Air, Anita Loomba, stated that one of the reasons people enjoy traveling is because of their ability to connect with others. Travel has declined, and they want to provide a way for travel lovers all over to connect. She also mentioned that connecting with people and experiences is vital for our survival. This was the main motivation behind the game – bringing people together without physically traveling as they normally would.
What the Game is About
The trivia game will include more than a dozen questions that range from aviation knowledge, like correctly naming the logo of an airline, to quirky facts. Participants will have the chance to win prizes that include paid airline credits worth $50, along with branded items which include mugs, t-shirts, and eye masks.
For those who travel a lot or are interested in aviation knowledge, the questions might be especially interesting.
The game is free to play and will also include a Q&A session with the founder of the app “App in the Air.”
Not many people like the idea of going backpacking on their own. Some of them may have been on a trail run by themselves plenty of times, but the thought of sleeping completely alone in the woods might make their scalps prickle. It may be the vulnerability of darkness or something else – the reason is specific to each person. If being alone in the wilderness helps you achieve your backpacking and hiking goals, don’t let the fear of it hold you back any longer.
If you have never been backpacking or hiking before, consider honing your mountain sense before going alone. A thorough understanding of the terrain, altitude, gear, conditions, wildlife, and everything in between is the first step in feeling self-sufficient and confident on the trail. Filtering water, setting up the tent, being aware that there might be bears around you, tending to your stove, treating a blister, and assessing the weather are only a part of being able to do the whole thing on your own. You won’t be able to rely on anyone else but yourself when you are out there, and this might be an empowering experience if you have the right equipment.
Mind Over Matter
Focus on statistics to put things in perspective. For instance, you are much more likely to be injured in a car crash than being bitten by a bear. Also, less than 1 in 37,500 people are bitten by venomous snakes each year in the U.S. Three million people hike the Appalachian Trail every year, and there are only 10 reported murders since 1974, according to the Appalachian Trail Conservancy. That said, you are far more likely to encounter another person threatening life in the neighborhood than on the trail.
Assess the Situation While Going Alone
Your anxiety may be trying to communicate with you. Weather, wildlife, other hikers on the trail, or anything else may be to blame. Trust your instincts. There’s no shame in turning around and returning another time if you get a strange feeling. Give yourself grace and patience when you try something different.
The solitude and confidence boost alone could be worth it.
