Istanbul is definitely very cool, but there have been many attacks there. A couple months ago when there was an attack right by the Blue Mosque, I absolutely thought how easily that could have been me when I was there. Not sure what the long term outlook on the city is. There have been many instances of violence there, certainly big problems exist with the Kurdish separatists, anti-Semitism, growing radical Islam, etc. It's a shame. Istanbul is one of the great cities in history.

Yellowknife, Northwest Territories is my favorite. The remoteness, the friendly people, the beautiful surroundings, the northern lights, and the unique things to do make it amazing to me.

As far as large cities go, I really like both Lusaka, Zambia, and Osaka, Japan. I really enjoy those large cities that have a small city feel.

Honolulu, Hawaii by far. I always wanted to live in Hawaii though the cost of living and my Libertarian political views have sadly kept me away.

Venice, Paris and Stockholm are my favorites with a dark horse nod to Kraków. I also found Dubrovnik to be lovely as a museum more than a real city.
