San Diego, CA USA or Sydney, Australia?
Definitely Sydney, much more lively city and larger with a lot going on and an exciting new heavy rail program. San Diego isn't a bad place at all but compared to Sydney, it doesn't seem super fair or equal.

San Francisco or Barcelona?

San Francisco. I can't say that I've ever really wanted to live in Europe, which probably biases me toward San Francisco. But I've also been to San Francisco and absolutely loved it there.

Puerto Princesa, Philippines vs. Maui, Hawaii, USA.

Maui. Puerto Princesa is a nice place to visit, but Maui superior for me as a long term home.

Steel Town V Steel City: Pittsburgh V Sheffield.

I really like Pittsburgh, but I think I'd go with Sheffield as it'd be interesting to live in the UK for a while and Sheffield doesn't seem to have gone through as heavy a depopulation as Pittsburgh has so it appears to be the more urban and bustling city of the two as Sheffield's at almost double the density within similar city land area sizes. This is a really good match-up!

Cities at around the extremities of their respective countries:


Punta Arenas, Chile or Wakkanai, Japan

Dallas or Fort Worth.
Neither, they are both too conservative for me.

San Antonio or Austin?

Puntas Arenas. bigger, warmer, less depressing looking. Far flung northern Japan looks like large Siberian towns.

Austin, it's got a lot more momentum, growth and national interest now

Not even sure where NYC was mentioned recently.


Zurich (most livable) vs Tokyo (most exciting)?

Already live in paradise, but Greenland and Iceland both beckon me. All of this may just go by the wayside as the US Dept of State has now issued new travel restrictions.Just when I thought it was going to be a normal summer - obviously over the CDC recommendations.

Right now C.A. is not on the list, but that can all change in a month or so - so keep tuned to their website

Oh, Tokyo easily! I actually think Tokyo is a lot more exciting and plenty livable as well. The only major issue for me is immigration status, but I think I can probably swing a position working in a JP branch of an American multinational which also means that I wouldn't be put under the same kind of work culture that people do actually complain about in Tokyo.


Coastal second cities of similar metropolitan population sizes in two developed countries on the opposing peninsulas of the large Eurasian landmass:



Barcelona, Spain or Busan, South Korea

Normally I'd always pick Korea vs anything (except Japan) but Spain especially Barcelona are the few choices that will make me think twice for a second, still: Busan.



Fukuoka, Japan vs Busan, S. Korea?
