Join us as we make the most of this sun-kissed season without breaking a sweat. Whether you are looking for an art fix or somewhere picturesque to recharge, here are 5 out-of-this-world destinations (we wish existed) that can only be found in AWW Issue 6.

Quench your thirst with the best hot chocolate in town, or make your plants happy by offering them a home in some beautifully designed pots.

Everything that starts with “P”: plants, pots, pastries AND Pichuchi, the most adorable coyote you’ll ever meet!
