200 crosswords — from easy to downright difficult
Test your travel knowledge with Lonely Planet’s Ultimate Travel Crosswords, available now from all good book retailers.
Here are 200 brain-teasing puzzles guaranteed to challenge every crossword fan who currently finds themselves at home, dreaming of their next escape.
“This book contains 200 fill-in grids themed (sometimes fairly loosely) on travel,” writes Editor Joe Fullman in his Introduction.” “They’re arranged into four sections, which increase in difficulty as the book progresses,” Joe says.
Lonely Planet’s Ultimate Travel Crosswords is divided as follows:
Chapter 1: Day-Tripper (Easy)
This is your entry level. The crosswords in this section will require some mulling and pondering, but they’re designed to test rather than confound.
Chapter 2: Traveller (Medium)
Things go up a notch here. The answers get a little more obscure, the clues a little less generous, the anagrams fewer and, as such, your progress may slow a little.
Chapter 3: Explorer (Hard)
Expect things to get harder still once you’ve reached Explorer level. Expectations of general knowledge have risen, so the clues are now terser and much less giving.
Chapter 4: Daredevil (Cryptic)
We’ve now reached the pinnacle, where things get really tricky. Up to this point, all the crosswords have been straightforward tests of general knowledge. But for this short section, you’ll need to have your lateral thinking hat on.
Also still available from Lonely Planet in the same vein: Lonely Planet’s Ultimate Travel Quiz Book (2019) and Ultimate Travelist Colouring Book (2016).
