Holiday Maths

On a recent holiday to Bali, I was lucky to stay at the magnificent Royal Pita Maha. This is by far the best Hotel/Resort I have ever seen. I quote from their website:

“The Royal Pita Maha is a captivating resort of refined Balinese villas embracing a precious parcel of valley landscape that descends down to the Ayung River. Located on the outer boundary of the spiritually charged village of Ubud, this private retreat ensures that every stay is an enriching experience.”

Surrounding the pool in our villa was this irregular tiling:

In the bathroom was a bath in the shape of a cardioid? Even while on holidays you can’t get away from Mathematics!

Of course I am not the only Maths teacher who discovers examples of Mathematics on their holidays. Check out Alison Kiddle’s post on her NRICH blog!

Have you got any “Holiday Maths” to share?
