If you could have a home base in each continent, where would they be? Feel free to stretch the definitions of the continents if you'd like or to leave some off altogether if that's how you feel.

Hmm so I'll give it a shot myself. Unfortunately I am really only well-traveled in the US/Canada and Asia. So a lot of these are conjecture. And as you can see I am a predictable, Alpha-city type of guy:

NA - New York City
Asia - Hong Kong
Europe - London (maybe Paris, or Amsterdam, or Lisbon, I need to travel more to know for sure!!)
Oceania - Melbourne (obviously Sydney is a strong contender and I've never been to either)
South America - Panama City or Lima I'd like to try. If not, then the more obvious Rio or Buenos Aires.
Africa - Probably Johannesburg. But if I want to be more interesting I would very much consider Tangier or somewhere else in Morocco.

Haven't been to some of these places, but just based on photos and what I've read:

Asia: Kobe
Europe: Barcelona
North America: Carmel-by-the-Sea
South America: Viña del Mar
Africa: Cape Town
Oceania: Melbourne


Or maybe Honolulu in either Oceania or North America, if it belongs to either continent.

North America: either San Francisco or New York, the two most attractive American cities by a very wide margin.
South America: Buenos Aires. Also Montevideo would do.
Oceania: Auckland.
