aaaaaaaaaaaaah. now I know.
I have a friend (my age) who moved here at 18 from England - I could listen to her accent all day long. However, when she goes home to her mum's they all call her a yank.

Okay, back to topic - (sorry Sushi!)
I grew up at the beach, so if I had to move, I'd choose somewhere near a lake.

Oh, dear; so many cities, so little time. I actually DID live in Paris once-upon-a-time .... but I was only a few years old. I once priced a flat in Ljubljana, but couldn't get hubby to go for it. I love living in apartments in big OLD buildings in big cities, preferably European, but cannot convince my husband to do it. He says once the dogs die, maybe. I know the dogs are an excuse, because dogs hang out under cafe tables in most European cities. I love most old cities, and like the neighborhood experience you get from living downtown in them.

In my fantasy world... I'd love to spend 6 months in all of the above mentioned cities.
Just to see which is the most comfortable for Paul and I. And then make my choice.

But, since we still haven't won the Washington State lottery.... I'd have to pick either Issaquah ( home sweet home) or Portland Oregon Or Carson City NV. All great places. In Europe... Amsterdam is pretty cool, I loved Paris but, don't think I could live there, The Greek island of Naxos is GREAT. I could spend a year or two living there.

I prefer the Central Coast or Newcastle, myself. Close enough to enjoy Sydney but far enough away to be a little less crowded.

Being from Massachusetts, I am accused of being parochial. I guess I have to go with the stereotype and say I am happy with Boston.

If I had to choose a second city, it would be San Francisco. (Probably because it is similar to Boston in so many ways.)

Z, Sushi didn't put Vegas 'cause you have all the cities/countries in one:
New York, New York
Paris
Egypt (Luxor)
Olde England (Excalibur)
Monte Carlo
The tropical islands (Mirage)
and of course "laid back land" in Margaritaville.
