This week is all about where math and travel meet. Join our #PPGeometry Instagram challenge! Ever hear of the golden ratio? Geometry is behind all of the world’s greatest structures: the Pyramid of Giza, the Great Wall of China, the Statue of Zeus at Olympia…so take out your camera and protractor because we’re looking for shapes — especially repeating shapes — of all kinds!

We’re thrilled to be joined by guest judges @aljvd and @ericmueller who can’t wait to see where your entries take us! Check their feeds for inspiration and follow the guidelines below to tell your story.

For @passionpassport‘s #PPGeometry challenge // While I was doing my research before visiting Jaipur, Amber Fort was on the top of all the lists that I saw. But this part of the fort complex — Panna Meen Ka Kund — was rarely mentioned, so I made sure to ask my guide about it so we could stop during the tour. Jaipur is a hectic town, and this was the only oasis of solitude I found during my two-day trip there. I can only imagine how nice it would be if, and when, it ever rains.
