    Got to be Paris for me, I do like parts of London by the river but Paris trumps it, so much more character, enjoyable to walk and beautiful. Would like to go to Manhattan but I just imagine it's really rude and brash.

    Barcelona- was there in transit before moving back to the UK after living in Andorra. Had a beer in a beautiful university campus surrounded by Orange groves (Jardins de Rubio i Llurch) and decided to miss my flight and stay.

    So far, it's got to be Washington DC. It was just so fun to go for a walk around the city and see all the sights in one day.

    I personally found DC to be really boring and dull. Everything's grey.

    I like Krakow and Prague very much. Brasov in Romania is lovely and I'm very fond of Brugge in Belgium. These are all beautiful places.

    I was once in love with a complete crap hole called Quetzaltenango which is in Guatemala. I'm now sort of in love with another crap hole called Regina, the capital of Saskatchewan. Both are hideous places. I guess I don't fall in love with architecture and culture so much as I do with the atmosphere of a place, the people meet there, and the memories I create for myself.

    Sharm el-Sheikh in Egypt, absolutely beautiful place. I felt like I was in a dream while I was there. The atmosphere, the weather, the people - everything was perfect

    I lived in Soldeu which is in the north of Andorra just before you get tot he French speaking town of Pas de la Casa, it is a bloody beautiful little country but geez outside of ski season there is bugger all to do outside of abuse the tax free system!

    Saying that, i had a ball there and if you speak English and basic Spanish, it is really easy to get a job in a hotel which pays surprisingly well (£1200 in cash, free accommodation and free meals!)

    This was the view when I left my apartment...could be worse"Name:  Soldeu.jpg

    I'm not into tall buildings, 24/7 nightclubs, constant gigs with famous bands etc. I much prefer nature and outdoors but with some city life as well. So Auckland is pretty good for me.

    Prague. A perfect mixture of architectural bliss and modern day capitalism.

    Nice to see Brasov get a mention and I liked the view from atop the hill of the city and surrounding countryside. Elsewhere in romania Peles castle is stunning and has a lovely backdrop in the mountains.

    Didn't like Prague. I'm sure it was nice before it became a stag do destination. Way too touristy.

    Krakow is nice though.
