Geography Lesson

I studied Geography in the 4th grade with Sister Clara. A long time ago! We studied countries like Persia, Czechoslovakia, Ceylon and the USSR, which are now known as Iran, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, Sri Lanka and Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Estonia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldovia, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan.

So when my friends at Holiday Rentals sent me some info on Finistere I had to learn more about it. Finistere is in France, Brittany more specifically. I also learned this...Finistère has a temperate climate. Temperate, meaning NOT EXTREME. Not extreme as is no below zero winds chills and no near blizzard conditions. That in itself sounds so very appealing to me right now, as I sit shivering and watching the snow fall and fall and fall.

A little getaway would be so wonderful right now and Finistere might be just the place, with it's beautiful coastline and rich heritage. If you're also looking for a getaway, you might want to try a private rental, instead of hotel rooms and you could save up to 40%!

OR you could just come to Dallas where the high is the lowest "cold snap" this season- that would be 40 degrees.

Are you giving us a sneak peek of an upcoming vacation for you and your husband? A romantic get-away perhaps in honor of your anniversary?

Or are you just "paying the bills" again?

I can't tell. :)

I'm pretty sure this is another ad, but I like how you did this one. It's more interesting than the last one you did, and you blended it into your blog well.

I clicked a few links (hope that helps!)

I'd LOVE to go to France some day.
