About This Quiz

Did you know there are 195 countries in the world? We knew there were a lot, but wow! With nearly 200 countries on Earth, how can we be sure we grew up in the right one? It's a bit like that nagging feeling in the back of your mind that, even though you love them to death, your parents are not really your parents. You're an alien! No? Just us? All right, forget we said anything ... But certainly, the thought has crossed your mind that your childhood could have been even happier if you've spent it in another country. Like, sure, mac and cheese with sliced-up hotdogs is good, but the fresh baguettes French kids eat are even better. 

See, now we've got you thinking. You always felt a little out of place at T-ball. Even as a five-year-old, you thought the whole concept ridiculous! Instead, maybe you should have been playing youth cricket in India or beginner rugby in Australia. Ah yes, the wheels are turning. We want to try to guess the country you should have grown up in! Take this quiz, and we'll reveal where in the world you should have spent your childhood. Even if those days are long gone, it's not too late to book a trip there!
