Which great American novel was written in Slovenia’s Julian Alps? What legendary myth is associated with the island of Santorini?

Embark on an Epic Journey to test your answer—and you’ll also suddenly feel like you’re there. TravelandLeisure.com launched a new online odyssey sponsored by Infiniti, featuring both dramatic photography and "cinemagraphs" (so, yes, if you think the trees are subtly swaying, or that people are walking in some of these images—they are).

Just start by picking which of the 10 “color journeys” you want to embark on: the Beige journey spans from the ancient city of Petra to California’s Highway 1, while Purple highlights rich experiences from Morocco to Mexico, and White embraces both the snows of Bavaria and the sugary sands of Turks & Caicos. As you scroll down the screens, the color palate gently connects one destination to another.

Along the way, you’ll also enrich your knowledge about each destination. Each color features 10 multiple-choice questions that will test your own savvy about the history, traditions and quirks of these cities, countries and gorgeous stretches of terrain. (What should you give the monks, by the way, during the public morning rituals on the streets of Laos’ Luang Prabang? Hint: It’s not spare change.)

And worry not: there are no penalties for wrong answers. Just like travel itself, you learn as you go.
