    Our featured instagrammer of the week, @insearchofperfect described her hunt for a less-familiar view of New York City: “I turned to the Manhattan Bridge in Chinatown for inspiration. The suspension bridge connects lower Manhattan with downtown Brooklyn and offers more intimate views of the streets below. As the produce shops and seafood stalls went on with their daily business, I stopped by a literal hole in the wall—or fence—and took it all in.”

    Feasting in Fez
    Feasting in Fez
    Our featured instagrammer of the week, @insearchofperfect described her breakfast in Fez as a meal filled with “simple pleasures: a delicate Rif mountain honey spread on a fluffy piece of melloui bread and accompanied by a refreshing cup of mint tea. The lingering pace of Moroccan breakfasts set within the intricate interior of the lovely Riad Baba continues to beckon me back to this delightful place.”

    There’s so much to do on the history-rich island of Corsica. Besides exploring centuries-old fortresses and swimming through sea caves, yacht-watching in Bonifacio’s sparkling harbor makes for a dreamy golden hour activity.
