Did you know? Botanic Gardens play an important role in plant conservation. We can thank Botanic Gardens, like Phipps Conservatory, for preserving threatened and endangered plant species! One of the things we love about visiting Phipps Conservatory is how each exhibit highlights foliage from different ecosystems! Pictured here is the Asian plant inspired exhibit. This beautiful outdoor garden features bonsai trees and other plants native to Asian countries. . . . . . . #steelcitygrammers @nextpittsburgh @visitpittsburgh #lovepgh #pittsburghinpictures #pittsburghpa #pittsburgh #pittsburghbeautiful @phippsconservatory #scenicpa #pacollective #visitpa #femaletravelbloggers #girlsborntotravel #studentsoftheworld #studentoftheworld #studentnomad #studentuniverse #travelbloggerlife #travelwomen #womenwhotravel #roamingwomen #womenwhoexplore #girldiscoverers #girlaroundtheworld #globelletravels #exploresocially #nomadgirl #travellerspursuit #writetotravel #wheretofindme #everywhereforward #ladiesgoneglobal

This year is the 125th anniversary of Phipps Conservatory. It's amazing how enjoying flowers and foliage is a timeless activity 🌼Phipps was opened in 1893 as a gift to Pittsburgh from philanthropist Henry W. Phipps. Over the years, Phipps continues to serve as a beautiful space for locals and visitors to enjoy. . . . . . . #steelcitygrammers @nextpittsburgh @visitpittsburgh #lovepgh #pittsburghinpictures #pittsburghpa #pittsburgh #pittsburghbeautiful @phippsconservatory #scenicpa #pacollective #visitpa #femaletravelbloggers #girlsborntotravel #studentsoftheworld #studentoftheworld #studentnomad #studentuniverse #travelbloggerlife #travelwomen #womenwhotravel #roamingwomen #womenwhoexplore #girldiscoverers #girlaroundtheworld #globelletravels #exploresocially #nomadgirl #travellerspursuit #writetotravel #wheretofindme #everywhereforward #ladiesgoneglobal

Traveling abroad is always fun, but sometimes it's nice to explore new places close to home! In this next series of photos, we're switching gears to all things fall and winter, particularly focusing on places around our home in western Pennsylvania! 🍂🍁 Last week we had the chance to enjoy the Fall Flower Show at Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Garden in Pittsburgh! 🌼 The "sunken garden" exhibit was a favorite because of beautiful fall-colored mums! . . . . . . #steelcitygrammers @nextpittsburgh @visitpittsburgh #lovepgh #pittsburghinpictures #pittsburghpa #pittsburgh #pittsburghbeautiful @phippsconservatory #scenicpa #pacollective #visitpa #femaletravelbloggers #girlsborntotravel #studentsoftheworld #studentoftheworld #studentnomad #studentuniverse #travelbloggerlife #travelwomen #womenwhotravel #roamingwomen #womenwhoexplore #girldiscoverers #girlaroundtheworld #globelletravels #exploresocially #nomadgirl #travellerspursuit #writetotravel #wheretofindme #everywhereforward #ladiesgoneglobal

Chichen Itza! One of the seven wonders of the world! Who's been to all seven? Did you know Chichen Itza is the whole archeological site and the El Castillo is the Mayan pyramid pictured here? The Castillo is a Mesoamerican step-pyramid and fine example of how the Mayans were amazing astronomers. The pyramid itself is a calendar! The pyramid has 91 steps on each site, with a final step at the top making a total of 365, the number of days in a solar year. Ninety-one is also how many days that separate each of the four phases of the annual solar cycle: winter solstice, spring equinox, summer solstice, and fall equinox. During the fall and spring equinox, the sun casts a beautiful triangle shadow pattern down the pyramid that looks like a snake! This snake represents the Mayan deity Kukulkan. . . . . . . . . . . #thediscoverer #travelblogger #travelbloggerlife #quintanaroo #femaletravelbloggers #darlingescapes #chichenitzá #mayanruins #womenwhotravel #studentuniverse #studentsoftheworld #travelwomen #nomadgirls #wetravelgirls #thetravelwomen #travelgirlsgo #passportready #girldiscoverers #girlaroundtheworld #writetotravel #globelletravel #lovetheworld #girlsabroad #girlsthatwander #collegetourist #femmetravel #wearetravelgirls #travelsisters #wheretofindme #travelbloggerlife @wearetravelgirls @femaletravelbloggers @girlaroundworld @dametraveler @globelletravels

If you clap your hands in front of the pyramid at Chichen Itza, you'll hear a sound that kinda sounds like a bird. The echoes themselves are to represent the quetzal bird, a spiritually important animal to the 12th century Mayans. But ever wonder why you hear this echo? . Well, it's all because the Mayans were pretty great scientists. Physicists today have studied why this phenomenon happens in front of the pyramid. It seems that the steps of the pyramid form a "Bragg diffraction grating." Diffraction occurs when a light or sound wave hits an object and changes upon interactions with the object. It's been suggested that the steps on the pyramid diffract the acoustic waves from your clap, changing their tone and frequency, into the echo you hear!

The Temple of the Jaguars at the Great Ball Court in Chichen Itza is another beautiful representation of Mayan culture. The jaguar was the Mayan god of the underworld and symbolizes power. At the base of this Temple, you can see an example of the jaguar thrones that are in many of the temples at Chichen Itza. . The Great Ball Court is where the ceremonial ball game, Pok-ta-pok. The Mayans believed in the existence of a place of darkness called Xibalba, an underworld located deep below the ground and sea ( cenotes where the spirits go in the afterlife) The myth tells the story of brothers Hunahpú and Ixbalanqué, who represented the luminous side of the cosmos, going to the underworld to fight against death and darkness. They were sacrificed and transformed into the sun and the moon. The ball game became an ancestral tradition, representing the fight between light and darkness. . . . . . . . . . #travelwritersjournal #travelblogger #travelbloggerlife #quintanaroo #femaletravelbloggers #cancun #chichenitzá #mayanruins #womenwhotravel #studentuniverse #studentsoftheworld #travelwomen #nomadgirls #postcardsfromtheworld #mayanculture #ancienthistory #passportready #girldiscoverers #girlaroundtheworld #writetotravel #globelletravel #lovetheworld #mayan #girlsthatwander #girldiscoverers #femmetravel #wearetravelgirls #travelsisters #wheretofindme #travelbloggerlife

Who's visited Chichen Itza?! . This probably isn't a typical photo of Chichen Itza that people share on their feeds. Chichen Itza is full of many amazing archeological sites! Pictured here is a view of The Temple of Warriors. The Temple is a stepped pyramid surrounded by hundreds of columns. "The Thousand Columns" were beautifully designed to represent Toltec and Maya men and priests, making these structures and important military and religious site. . . . . . . . . . . #travelwritersjournal #travelblogger #travelbloggerlife #quintanaroo #femaletravelbloggers #cancun #chichenitzá #mayanruins #womenwhotravel #studentuniverse #studentsoftheworld #travelwomen #nomadgirls #postcardsfromtheworld #mayanculture #ancienthistory #passportready #girldiscoverers #girlaroundtheworld #writetotravel #globelletravel #lovetheworld #mayan #girlsthatwander #girldiscoverers #femmetravel #wearetravelgirls #travelsisters #wheretofindme #travelbloggerlife

Where was the first place you traveled abroad? 🌎 . The first time I went abroad, it was to Mexico! Being able to go back to Meixco last brought back so many good memories of the first time I went abroad. I still remember the feeling of awe visiting somewhere so different from home 🏘️ Thankfully, those feelings continue to happen anytime we travel to new places! . . . . . #travelwriter #travelblogger #travelbloggerlife #quintanaroo #femaletravelbloggers #cancun #moonpalace #moonplaceresort #womenwhotravel #studentuniverse #studentsoftheworld #travelwomen #nomadgirls #postcardsfromtheworld #beautifuldestinations #wonderful_places #passportready #girldiscoverers #girlaroundtheworld #writetotravel #globelletravel #lovetheworld #instatravel #girlsthatwander #welltraveled #femmetravel #wearetravelgirls #travelsisters #wheretofindme #travelbloggerlife

Look at this small palm tree 🌴 . What is your favorite thing to see when you travel somewhere new? One of the many things we love exploring is how nature changes around us in different places. We're from a rural mountainous area of the United States, so it's so different for us to see palms trees everywhere when we travel to Mexico! 😊 . . . . . #travelwriter #travelblogger #travelbloggerlife #quintanaroo #femaletravelbloggers #cancun #moonpalace #moonplaceresort #womenwhotravel #studentuniverse #studentsoftheworld #travelwomen #nomadgirls #postcardsfromtheworld #beautifuldestinations #wonderful_places #passportready #girldiscoverers #girlaroundtheworld #writetotravel #globelletravel #lovetheworld #instatravel #girlsthatwander #welltraveled #femmetravel #wearetravelgirls #travelsisters #wheretofindme #travelbloggerlife
