I Saw it on Vacation - Week 1 - Feb 17

I'm so excited to be launching the first edition of this new blog-hop.

What have you seen on Vacation? "I Saw it on Vacation" is a weekly link-up for kids and adults to learn about geography. Many of us have been to exciting places and seen unique things. Let us dream about future vacations while we learn more about our world!

Corn fields in Iowa, the Eiffel Tower in Paris, Sleeping Bear Dunes in Michigan, grizzly bears in Alaska…….monuments, landmarks, national parks, geographical features of any type are fair game. It doesn’t even really need to be a vacation. Your post could be about your local climate, or the traditions of your region. If the post shows photos of mountains and big horn sheep in Colorado, or explains hurricanes in the south it’s applicable. Just make sure it is kid-friendly and geography related.

Feel free to link-up a post you've already written and comment on the posts of others! Please link your post on the weekly I Saw it on Vacation blog-hop post and on the I Saw it on Vacation page. I’m excited to see what you have seen!

This is Neuschwanstein Castle. It's located in Bavaria, Germany about a 1 hour train ride from Munich. It was built by King Ludwig II who had a hobby of building castles. His hobby was so big that it practically bankrupted his family. The Disney castle in Florida was modeled after Neuschwanstein. Inside there are many beautiful rooms including a huge throne room, a concert hall and a man-made cave. The castle was never completely finished and nobody ever lived in it.
