As a respite from monsoon season we’ve been checking out some of the gorgeous places (see above) to stay as featured on the hotel website The Common Pursuit.

We like its simplicity. No words, just lots of pictures of hotels, guesthouses and self-catering boltholes from cabins in the wilderness to Alpine chalets all over the globe. It’s not a booking site, just a sumptuous bit of hotel porn. Go on, get ogling and dream of sunnier climes.
