In a tweet published Sunday evening, George Clooney informed his followers that his wife Amal has scored a coveted spot on Conde Nast Traveler’s coveted “must-go list for travelers of the year.” The list includes big names, from Winnie the Pooh creator A.A. Milne to actor Aaron Sorkin, as well as some very secret places, including one that you may have never heard of. “Hats off to Amal’s painstaking research for getting #CNTraveler to consider @Dubai the Traveler of the Year – it was no easy feat,” George wrote. It’s hard to argue with Amal’s glowing travel reviews, as the couple spent their year in China and India, among other places.
