I absolutely despise San Francisco but I would easily choose it over San Juan because it's in the US, not on an Island, and a bit safer.


Istanbul, Turkey vs. Tokyo, Japan

Tokyo. Istanbul is a beautiful city, but I didn't have a great time there due to racism. I don't claim that all or even most Turks are racist, but during my short weeklong visit, I was called and money and laughed at by several members of the Turkish security forces and had some Turkish woman at a restaurant walk up to me, pull my hair and then walk away in laughter.

I have never experienced any such behavior during my weeks in Japan.

Lagos, Nigeria vs. Addis Ababa, Ethiopia?

Addis Ababa is more personally appealing. I'm sure Lagos is doing better economically, but I appreciate Ethiopian culture and the food is something I would really enjoy as a vegetarian.


Ho Chi Minh City or Bangkok?

Darn auto correct. That should have read I was “called a monkey”

Ho Chi Minh City or Bangkok?
Bangkok, but I'm biased because I lived there for a year and loved it. I've never been to HCMC (or Vietnam for that matter) but I'm under the impression that it's kind of chaotic there. Traffic is crazy, Vietnam is not as developed as Thailand, and it's super noisy. I also like Thai food a bit better too since I'm a vegan.


Busan, S. Korea vs. Dubai, UAE

Probably Oaxaca as I like what I've read about the city, culture and food. Guatemala City seems to be a bit rough from what I know about it.

Sydney, Australia vs. London, UK?

Oof, these are two of the top cities in the world that I have not been to yet. I'll take London cause I'm pretty sure it will be on the very top tier, while Sydney probably can't crack that top tier for me. But I wouldn't be surprised if I loved Sydney also.

Melbourne, Australia vs Birmingham, UK

Melbourne, prefer the warmer Aussie climate and the outdoor getaway in close proximity. Also Melbourne just seems like a lot more fun.


Cebu City, Philippines vs. Christchurch, New Zealand

Christchurch. Love Philipino culture but the fact its economy is at the level of Bolivia or El Salvador I'm more inclined to go for a higher middle income society.

Turku, Finland vs Tallahassee, Florida
