Can you find your way through this mirrored adventure?
Several years ago, I followed ViktorVash on Instagram because I loved his photography. When he posted images from his visit to the Franklin Institute, I made a point to see it this summer. Philadelphia is only a few hours from my hometown in Maryland. When my mom called me one day and explained she wanted to visit the city, I jumped at the chance and invited my sister and fiancé for the adventure.
The science museum hosts “A Mirror Maze: Numbers in Nature” through September 4. Immediately upon entering, you’ll be shocked by the neon lights and stunning patterns that seem to surround yourself endlessly. After bumping into a few mirrors, you can find your way around the immersive experience. The 1700-square-foot maze challenges you to discover how geometry, tessellations and repetitions are the basis of design in the world today.
You can explore the rest of the museum once you’ve found your way out. Your inner child will come out as you soak in all the science and technology in the building. Maybe you’ll learn a thing or two!

Back to the big apple for a short getaway.
For those who don’t know, I’m in love with art. This love derives from my mother who used to sculpt figures back in her college days. While DC more recently began to host big names (think Yayoi Kusama and Snarkitecture), I regularly venture to New York to see some of my favorite creators, as well as discover new ones.
Below are a few we saw:
- The Finiliar by Ed Fornieles
- The Listening Dimension by Olafur Eliasson
- John McCracken

An orchid show at the New York Botanical Garden.
If you’re looking to escape the bustling city and surround yourself with rare flowers, then the New York Botanical Garden may be the perfect place to relax. The opening weekend of the orchid show, I ventured with friends to the Bronx for an afternoon in nature. it took about two hours to loop around and view all the flowers, but it was well worth it.
