I am very lucky to have seen many countries, Islands and cities and even luckier to have experienced a guide book full of beautiful monuments. Whilst we are taking in the sites, studying the history and admiring such aptitude and skill i have never stopped to think about how we preserve our nations masterpieces.
I love to read, i love to explore and generally be involved with any subject concerning travel and so when i came across an article on Karchers website i promptly took pleasure in reading the history of Karcher and just how many landmarks this product has cleaned.
Now we have some Karcher products at home and my Hubby takes great pleasure in jet washing the car and cleaning the windows. If only they could invent a karcher iron… so i am familiar with what a great piece of machinery the Karcher is and the results it can produce.The Karcher has been used to maintain various landmarks and it was interesting to discover just how many i had visited, including the statue of liberty and just recently the Monument to the discoveries situated in Lisbon port. It was just a few weeks ago that we were admiring this landmark on our recent cruise.
Karcher has a fun, interactive quiz running presently and i thought it would be a good challenge for my Hubby and I to play the online quiz and see how far we could get in placing famous landmarks on the Karcher world map. Both of us are very well traveled but i have to admit that although i am travel savvy and wise to the world my Geography is absolutely appalling. My map reading is even worst. I know Italy is shaped like a boot so placing the Collonades was easy, and of course how could i misplace the London eye whilst currently living in the United Kingdom myself. Mark’s geography however is above average and as usual he whizzed through the quiz with maximum points.
I feel like i have had a mini culture lesson and learned so much about the history and upkeep of so many important monuments and land marks. Did you know the London eye was cleaned for the first time in 2013. That is Three years after it was built. The cleaning operation took three weeks and was done at night time as not to disrupt the running of the wheel.
“There are so many other facts about some of the world greatest landmarks over at Karcher’s webpage, where you can also take the monuments of the world quiz. So why not gather your family together and test their knowledge?
Many thanks to Karcher for collaborating with My Model Mummy to bring my readers a fun interactive quiz based on travel and culture.
