What about the fourth largest cities of two very similar European countries..

Séville (Spain) or Napoli (Italy)
I would go with Séville. I really like the architecture there and it looks more open (less chaotic) than Naples.

Dublin. Tough choice for me as I actually like Vienna quite a lot and have never been to Dublin. But ultimately I think I would like Dublin about the same and the English language would be the clincher.

Mexico City v Bangkok

Mexico City. Lots of things about Mexico really appeal to me.

Nairobi, Kenya or Johannesburg, South Africa?

Nairobi! I have friends living there, and they seem to more or less love it there.

Dublin, Ireland or Singapore

Singapore, better weather, more of a centralized hub, and a super clean environment.


Salt Lake City vs. Wellington, NZ.

SLC. As cool as the Kiwi experience would be, I prefer not to be on an island. Also, as an American, I'd rather raise my kids in the US.

Oslo, Norway or Prince Rupert, BC, Canada?

Mannn safe bet is Oslo. While it's nowhere near the top of my list of choices, I have learned about it enough to be intrigued and to know that it is a pretty nice place to live. But...Prince Rupert seems so interesting! I love BC and its ethnic distribution is what is most appealing to me. As much as I struggle with smaller towns, I'd definitely like to check it out. So maybe I'll say, for a year or less, give me Prince Rupert. Longer than that and I'll probably need to go with Oslo.

Phnom Penh v Yangon

Definitely Phnom Penh. I have no interest in being under the thumb of the totalitarian govt of Myanmar or Burma or whatever they want to be called this week. Plus Cambodia has come a long way since the killing fields and may be one of the most up and coming countries in Asia.

Hainan island, China or Comoros?

Def. Hainan; it's much closer to everything, much more developed, and probably safer.


Halifax, Canada vs. Glasgow, Scotland
