London- The whole world in one city, and extremely easy access to everywhere else. I've never seen another city that is so massive but still feels so quaint at the same time. You can always pop into the "community living room" (the pub) to escape the hustle and bustle.

For me it is between Istanbul, San Diego & Mombasa. I would really like to visit Rio though. It looks simply beautiful.

Can you explain to me what you liked about Mombasa? I've only been to Nairobi, didn't get to explore it as much as I'd like but thought it was a descent city.

I honestly don't know how I can possibly answer this. I've thought about it a lot but there's just no way to choose one. And I really think this answer changes depending on the circumstances, which can change through your lifetime. Is cost a factor? Work? Kids and family?

I guess if I try to just imagine that I must spend the rest of my life in just one metropolitan area, then it would have to be either New York City or Hong Kong. However there are a number of powerhouses that I have not been to that could make the cut someday...London, Sydney, Melbourne, and Buenos Aires.

I haven't been to Barcelona yet but really feel it would be one of my favorite cities in the World-love looking at photos there. Seoul too seems amazing-I think I'd visit there before Tokyo-although I definitely would like to see Tokyo too.

My favorite city is Bern, Switzerland. I love the honey colored stone, the rows of arcades (arched covered sidewalks), Aare river on 3 sides of town, the park across the river, distant views of the Alps.
