I Saw it on Vacation - Week 4 - March 9

You are making I Saw it on Vacation grow into an awesome geography resource and it is so cool! Last week there was a link with beautiful scenery from the Bavarian Alps, another with lovely views of Niagara Falls plus links from Pennsylvania and North Carolina.
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 picture is from Cinque Terre, Italy. It is a tourist wonderland which consists of five small villages along the north-western Italian coast. Unfortunately, the water turned brown, the streets turned to mud rivers and the entire area was devestated. In October 2011, just a month after our visit, heavy rains lead to severe flooding and mudslides which severely damaged the villages. In addition, the trails were destroyed and the train tunnels were filled with mud leaving water as the only route out of the area. Here is a video of flood and a video of the clean-up. To learn more about what we saw in Italy click on Italy on the right-hand side of the blog under European Countries.
