Where is your dream summer vacation?

That's how we came across this gorgeous photo of a street in Grottaglie, Apulia, Italy. Dream vacation material, for sure!

Happy Tuesday, Nomaterra fans! Here's another beautiful picture of our own founders' travels! This shot is of the Millennium Bridge in London! What are your favorite London spots?
As many of you may know, our founders Ben and Aggie have been jet-setting quite a bit lately, spreading the Nomaterra love domestically and abroad! A few weeks back they were in London, where they held an event at Fenwick Department Store's Bond Street location to introduce Nomaterra overseas. They took so many great photos while over there, that we couldn't help but share one more of their own travel shots this week!

With the release of Condé Nast Traveler's 2013 Hot List of Hotels
, we couldn't help but check out what the hottest hotels in our fair city were. And boy were we impressed! We were particularly pleased to see that a hotel in Brooklyn was featured, and was in fact declared the hottest of all three New York hotels that made the list! The Wythe Hotel
, in lovely Williamsburg, looks like a fantastic home away from home whenever you're next in the city! With breathtaking views of Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Queens, a rooftop bar, and a top-notch restaurant in the building, we'll definitely be heading over to check out this hot hotel.

Antarctica may not be the first spot many people think of for their next vacation, and to be honest it probably doesn't even make the top 10 list for just about anyone. That said, we love this gorgeous photo from the world's largest desert (that's right, it's not the Sahara) which also calls itself home to the world's saltiest body of water on earth! The Don Juan Pond is officially on our list of natural wonders we want to see.

It's a well known fact that New Yorkers are constantly on the move, and that constant business requires great amounts of caffeine! So it goes without saying that we're all pretty big coffee junkies. That said, we're super excited about this weeks Travel Shot Tuesday post about Pike Place Market
in Seattle, WA. This super cool market is the home of one of Starbucks's classic blends, and is a great spot to check out on a lazy weekend afternoon!
