I was in the US Navy. I got to travel to over 40 countries while I was in uniform. I saw the best and the worst of the world. Later in life I cruised to a dozen or so Caribbean islands.

I like to believe I could thrive in multiple countries. Australia, Uruguay, Argentina, Iceland, most of continental Europe, Japan.

In 2008 I took a vacation to the Philippines with an eye to retiring there. Supposedly for $1,500 US a month you can retire well there. I got tired of eating the food for 18 days. I longed for a salad and a steak.

London in the 1990s would work for me. I haven't been there for decades. I have to imagine that migration had degraded that city.

Cartegena Colombia vs Recife Brazil

Recife, Brazil. Both areas seem to be of comparable levels of development but Recife seems to be the much larger, grander city. A lot of what makes Colombia interesting to me is the high elevations at the equator, and Cartagena seems pretty far from the mountains.

Spent a few months in Dusseldorf over the summer and I absolutely loved it, and I have some friends there now. Never been to Nuremburg, but no matter the comparison, Dusseldorf is a place I would like to live anyway

Brussels vs Copenhagen

Brussels. I’ve got some friends over there and furthermore it’s closer to home.

Let’s pit two of the oldest European settlements in the New World against one another:
Sanctus Ioannes Terrae Novae vs Sanctus Ioannes de Portu Divite.

Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada vs. Mexico City, Mexico

I've had enough northern weather for a lifetime living in Seattle so I'll take Mexico City. But the food is so good, I'd be worried I'd balloon up to 300lbs LOL.


How about St. Petersburg Russia or Istanbul Turkey?

Istanbul Turkey, because it is not as cold. Plus the Turks seem more friendlier than the Russians.

Toronto Canada or New York City USA?

Block Island. Better weather, nice beaches, also less remote. Seems quite nice.


Three Romes:


Rome (I) or Istanbul (II) or Moscow (III)
