Go BIG or Go Home
What Happens When A Small-Town Family Visits The "World's Largest"... Whatever!

PHOTO FRIDAY / Sighted and Shared!

One of the best things about travel blogging is the community among fellow bloggers. I especially love when another blogger will let me know about a BIG thing they’ve see in their travels; even more so when they share their photos with me!

For Photo Friday today, I wanted to show you some. First, Annie at Practical Adventurology recently attended Carnaval de Nice in France, one the world’s largest pre-Lent celebrations. It’s been taking place since 1873, but is now known for the spectacular, immense floats. These figures were about six stories tall!

During a getaway to Knoxville, TN, Karon at All Things Lifestyle discovered one of our favorite “world’s largests” – the world’s largest Rubik’s Cube! The cube was a gift from the Hungarian government for the 1982 World’s Fair, which was held in Knoxville. It is ten feet tall, and weighs 1,200 pounds! There are a few more details about it in this post, which was one of our first posts ever here on GBOGH. Glad to see it’s still there!
