Big Dreams in the Big Apple - She’s Venturing is in New York City!

Big Dreams in the Big Apple Unplanned blessings and unexpected luck can lead you to some of your life’s greatest adventures… We were graciously offered a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that brought us to New York City this weekend. We were offered a prime featured space on a billboard at 1540 Broadway in the heart of Times Square! After pinching myself upon hearing the news, I got to creating an ad that I hoped would both capture attention and showcase the heart behind She’s Venturing - Love for travel. Passion for good. That we are all ‘Made for Venturing’. The inspiration just came to me, and in one fell swoop I designed the video that felt like a piece of my heart that I could show to the world. I sent my video to the generous parties that be and wondered…could we be just crazy enough to pull off a 22 hour trip that includes a drive to Miami and then flights from Miami to New York and back and then home to Key West, just to see it for ourselves? The answer is yes, we are always just crazy adventurous enough. Whirlwind travel is our forte so we jammed our backpacks with the essentials and we were off! … Times Square, Central Park, and the intricacies of the unique offerings of both…we somehow packed gorgeous memories of each into our short visit. As we boarded the plane, the trip seemed like a short dream, but one I want to remember and relive in another longer visit very soon. I want to see that beautiful city in full spring bloom, dressed in warm colors for fall, and twinkling with lights and a white blanket of snow in the winter. I leave a piece of my sentimental heart in every city I come to love, and there is now absolutely a part of it in New York City. More at ShesVenturing.org 🧡

Chichen Itza - Tour of a Mayan City 600-1200 AD

Chichen Itza was a large pre-Columbian city built by the Maya people of the Terminal Classic period. The archaeological site is located in Tinúm Municipality, Yucatán State, Mexico. Chichen Itza was a major focal point in the Northern Maya Lowlands from the Late Classic (c. AD 600–900) through the Terminal Classic (c. AD 800–900) and into the early portion of the Postclassic period (c. AD 900–1200). The site exhibits a multitude of architectural styles, reminiscent of styles seen in central Mexico and of the Puuc and Chenes styles of the Northern Maya lowlands. The presence of central Mexican styles was once thought to have been representative of direct migration or even conquest from central Mexico, but most contemporary interpretations view the presence of these non-Maya styles more as the result of cultural diffusion. Chichen Itza was one of the largest Maya cities and it was likely to have been one of the mythical great cities, or Tollans, referred to in later Mesoamerican literature.[2] The city may have had the most diverse population in the Maya world, a factor that could have contributed to the variety of architectural styles at the site. The ruins of Chichen Itza are federal property, and the site's stewardship is maintained by Mexico's Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia (National Institute of Anthropology and History). The land under the monuments had been privately owned until 29 March 2010, when it was purchased by the state of Yucatán.
