But most of all I am eager simply for a change of scenery. Sometimes that's all it takes to recharge and receive that universally needed jolt of inspiration. Personally, I have always been drawn to small, character-filled hotels. Apparently, I am not alone. This issue takes a look at ten new hotels around the world that are offering a truly personalized experience. Our contributing writer Meg Nolan van Reesema uncovers new properties—from Vietnam to Costa Rica and New York to Rome—that you'll want to take note of when planning your next trip. Tuscany, a region known for celebrating life's simple pleasures, is our cover story. While it's certainly not a new or trendy destination, it is a place that beckons you back time and time again. On my first visit there as a college student, I was immediately smitten by the picturesque rolling hills and magical light. Contributing editor Alyssa Shelasky checks into Castelfalfi, at the center of a medieval village, and tells us why Tuscany can be the perfect destination for family travel. This issue also takes us on a journey to Antarctica, where photographer Gray Malin completes a trek that has taken him to every continent. His photo essay is incredibly captivating. Our executive editor, Tali Jaffe, travels to Tel Aviv for an insider look of the coastal city that the fashion and art set can't get enough of. Angella Nazarian, the best-selling author of "Pioneers of the Possible," (Assouline) goes to Argentina to uncover some of that country's lesser-known destinations. And super-stylish jewelry designer to the celeb set Jennifer Meyer Maguire shares rare finds in Los Angeles and personal treasures from her vast travels. Finally, we close the issue with the talented chef and author Anthony Bourdain, who slowed down just long enough to offer up some of his travel tales and tips and reveal what's on his bucket list. We hope this issue entices you to call your travel agent and start packing! Sarah Harrelson Editor in Chief
