    Conde Nast Traveler has just released its 17th annual Hot List.

    Designed to be the ultimate insider’s guide to the hottest new hotels and spas of the year, Conde Nast editors anonymously visited 57 countries and this year present the largest ever list with 154 new hotels and 35 of the world’s most blissful new spas.

    The Hot List hotels range in size, price, and style, from the trendy Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn, the epicenter of Brooklyn’s trendy artisanal food movement, to the remote, luxurious Mashpi Lodge in Ecuador, which looks out over a lush 42,000-acre private reserve high above the Andean rain forest.

    One of the properties we are excited to see in the list is Castello Di Casole in Tuscany.  We spent a few nights in Castello Di Casole during our recent one-week road trip through Tuscany and absolutely loved it.  Click this link and take a peek at the video we filmed while there.

    Bio: The Roaming Boomers is a luxury travel blog spotlighting experience, adventure, learning and exploration. David and Carol Porter, Michigan natives who retired to Scottsdale, started the project in 2008 after the market collapse took away almost half of the savings they’d carefully put together to be able to retire at age 50. The couple combined their years of entrepreneurship with a love of travel and set off to see if they could build success. The Roaming Boomers do occasionally accept free lodging, food and other gifts, but disclose that in their posts. They hope to build an audience of Baby Boomers who join them vicariously on their adventures. But they also hope to instill their love of travel so that the coming bubble of 79 million Boomers will join them.
