Not only is New Zealand home to some of the most stunning scenery on the planet, but its rugged tracks and wild weather thrill visitors with surprises around every corner. We recently spotted this gorgeous engagement photo shoot by Maz of Black Bird Tale and we're struck by the vivid imagery and the story behind the couple’s two-day road trip with their photographer.

From snow-capped mountains to the wild golden summer grasses in the valley, Mount Cook shines supreme in this photo series. Straight from the photographer, here's the scoop on all things Queenstown and photo worthy.

It’s not every day that we hear about an old French convent being turned into a luxury boutique hotel, so imagine our delight when we spotted this Relais & Chateaux stunner in The Luberon. Perched at the top of town, this 17th century stone structure is surrounded by hundreds of years old gardens, originally planted by monks who specialized in botany. Fast forward a few centuries and Couvent des Minimes is a family-run hotel that operates under the Relais & Chateaux brand. As all the hotels this group touches turn to gorgeous, Couvent des Minimes is modern and luxurious, with awesome amenities and even more awesome views.

Our friends over at Nomad Republic recently set up a gorgeous photoshoot in the South of France and showed off Couvent des Minimes in all its natural beauty. This team of wedding industry pros specialize in both European and US markets, so you can bet they chose this destination out of a bevvy of stunning venues. Here to give us the scoop on all things minimal, French, and modern, they’ve given us all the deets below.

Vacation On The Water
Spain

Rent a sailboat, catamaran, yacht or speedboat for the day and sip champagne, throw a Hermes scarf around your neck and let the wind hit your cheeks. 

Spain’s new charter boat service, Charteralia, has 45 different vessels for you to choose from. A day out on the Mediterranean Sea, watching the energy of Ibiza from the ocean is what we call an ideal vacation.

It’s rare that we can’t immediately spot the difference between a swanky hotel lobby and a restaurant, but this absolutely gorgeous spot in Madrid has us doing a double take.

It's delicious, it's affordable, and it's high on our list of brunch spots worth traveling to. Add it to the bucket list, amigos.
