I stopped in my (Instagram) tracks when I came across what I thought was a winter wonderland image. Upon closer inspection, I realized it was a small hot spring and waterfalls containing calcium carbonate deposits. You can find this dreamland in Bagni San Filippo, an area in the Province of Siena, Italy. Mamma mia. – Jeralyn, editorial director

Witching has officially gone mainstream: Please refer to this witch-themed adult sleep away camp in upstate New York. – Daniel, Fathom editor

Hoshino Resorts, one of our favorite Japanese hospitality brands, created a video introducing the traditional etiquette of Japanese hot springs. I should mention that it stars an animated bunny and frog. – Jeralyn

If you weren't convinced of Namibia's stunning natural beauty, take a look at these abstract aerial photos from photographer Leah Kennedy. – Daniel

I can't think of a new hotel brand that more perfectly suits its home town. Artisan goods maker Shinola will debut its first hotel (129 rooms, food and beverage, retail) in a historic building (and former department store) in Detroit this December. Winters in Motor City are cold! But the place promises to have a cozy, residential feel. Feels like a good enough reason to give it a go. - Jeralyn

I like this ode to this little doodad that turns your "apartment into a fancy hotel." - Jeralyn
