Probably Canada because I want to work in the TV industry there.

Denpasar, Bali, Indonesia vs. CancĂșn, Quintana Roo, Mexico
I'll take Indonesia. I know that Indonesia has had problems with safety (from terrorism), but I do not want to live in Mexico now. Even in a resort area.

Havana, Cuba vs. Hanoi, Vietnam?

Never been to either one but I'll take Hanoi. Looking back I would have gone to teach English there a decade ago if I could have. Havana is a place I want to visit but I don't think I could spend long periods of time there.

Berlin v Prague

Berlin. Larger city and I have friends there. I don't know anyone in Prague. I'd also like the opportunity to learn German as there are a lot of historical texts in German that I'd love to be able to read in their original language and theater/opera pieces to understand without subtitling.

Port-of-Spain, Trinidad or Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei

Prague. More interesting architecture and cheaper as Czech Republic doesn't use the Euro.

Stockholm, Sweden vs. Montreal, QC, Canada

Haha I think it is funny that you both answered me, and with different choices. So I will reply to both of yours.

Hmm, this one is tough. I've never been to either one, but I have Trinidad on my list to visit if opportunity arises. It is close to me in Miami and the Indian history and subculture is fascinating. I have basically no interest in visiting Brunei other than just to tick the box if it ever were convenient to do so.

BUT, to live in, I actually have a very large sphere/network centered around Malaysia and certainly expect to live there at some point in my lifetime. So living in Brunei for a brief period is perhaps more palatable than Trinidad would be. I don't really know...Trinidad is more enticing but the reality of living there may not be. So it is really hard to say. Ultimately I'll tip the scales slightly toward Brunei because of its far more favorable taxation...but I wouldn't want to live there for very long.

Montreal is one of my favorite cities. No question I hope to live there for a brief period in my lifetime. Stockholm is also very high quality of life and extremely attractive, but it isn't even close to my top tier preference the way Montreal is.

Alright...how about...Christchurch, NZ vs Birmingham, England

Christchurch, Seems more interesting to me due to the natural environment (ie. lots of outdoor things to do) and less chaotic. I also kind of don't like England anyways.


Honolulu, USA vs. Havana, Cuba

Honolulu and it is not even close. It is my dream city to live in.

I can't wait to move back to Honolulu in a couple of years. I miss it SO much!

Armenia. It seems more exotic to me than Russia.

Istanbul, Turkey vs. Tehran, Iran

Istanbul and it's not even close. Iran is far too conservative.

Montreal, Canada vs Melbourne, Australia
