We already told you about some assets of Georgia, such as the great location and the incredible charm of this American State that is not really well known outside of the USA, and even outside of the Southeast of the country! 😜So, Froggyz Adventures invites you to learn a little more… Indeed, we looked for some details about Georgia, and we discovered some interesting, but mainly funny, information about our lovely ‘Peach State’!

✍️ And the little extra from Froggyz…
As well as Georgia, an American State having the same name as a country in Eurasia, several cities in Georgia also sound very European! If we leave from our home in Augusta, GA, we could reach, without taking a flight, places such as: Rome, Macon, Dublin, Athens and Albany 😄
Finally, Europe is not that far away! 🐸
