I Saw it on Vacation - Week 2 - Feb 24

A big thank you to all of you who linked-up last week to kick off this blog hop! Eight links was a lot more than I expected. Four of them were from the great state of Alaska - very cool. Here is the page with links from the 50 states if you would like to take a look.

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 a photo from the local fasching (Mardi Gras) parade. Many dance groups, bands, and floats are in the parade. Almost everyone including many of the spectators wear costumes. Fasching is the fifth season in our area of Germany and we have managed to get very involved in the fun. That's me with the long red leg warmers. If you would like to read more about fasching, our involvement in the dancing and the parade see Fasching under German Living Topics on the right-hand side bar of the blog.

What have you seen?
