I Saw it on Vacation - Week 28 - Aug 24

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!

Historical reinactments are very popular in Europe as the written history is so long. This photo is from the Roman Festival in Trier, Germany which takes place each year at the end of August and the beginning of September. The Roman Soldiers were training for battle.

Unfortunately for the Romans they were defeated by the Germans and the survivers sent back to Rome. They were never able to add Northern Europe to the Roman Empire.

  1. It's interesting to read about reenactments in continental Europe. We go lots of them here in England and it's very useful to see how similar or different it is in Europe.
