I'm hoping to head to the desert this winter, Palm Springs to be exact. I once stayed at a gorgeous pensione, the Korakia, for a job and have been dying to go back. Its a beautiful little property made up of Moroccan and Mediterranean-inspired structures, built in the 20s and 40s by a famous painter and starlette. It's the kind of place that can transport you to a different time and place instantly. From the stone floors and white washed walls, to the strong mint tea, to the fountain with rose petals it will remind you more of a different country than a hotel.
