    Hate the city…all of them. I prefer to sit on my porch and hear nothing but the leaves rustling, the birds chirping and the creek flowing.

    any city i haven’t been to yet….THE WORLD IS MY OYSTER AND I WANT TO SEE IT ALL!!! but for now, i’d have to say i quite loved my trip to Mexico City this past summer. i met some amazing artists and shop owners and got to witness and climb the awe inspiring pyramids of Teotihuacan. Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera’s homes were incredible time capsules!!

    I haven’t been too many places outside the U.S. (unfortunately). I have a soft spot for Philly and NYC but I have to say that Boston is probably my favorite. I felt so at home there and the people were great!

    Annecy, France, where I live. Really beautiful scenery with mountains and the lake. But I also like Barcelona, London, Venezia and Bayreuth.

    I’ve only been there once, but I’ve lost my heart in … BERLIN!

    I would say Stockholm. It is beautiful, clean, hip, busy, and historic. Being in Stockholm actually made me want to learn Swedish :)

    I don’t really like cities, but San Francisco is fun to visit.

    Difficult to pick a city – although if they have fabric stores, they are in my crowded top ten. I was recently in Dublin and Galway. Those were interesting with all the old and new architecture.

    I’ve never been outside of the US/Canada, so San Francisco tops the list. Would rather be in the mountains, though, well outside of any metropolitan area.

    I have not been to many cities outside of the US so I am going to have to say San Francisco and San Diego are at the top of my list.

    Nevada City, CAlifornia for a little town……San Francisco and Seattle for larger cities. But I would love to go Tokyo, Paris, Milan, Hong Hong, or anyother distant exotic city to explore the culture, textiles and other beauty to see if I woul dhange my mind.

    New York. I visited it last year just for a couple of days and I have never been at any place so alive. I loved it from the first second.

    I haven’t been many places really. I really like San Francisco and Chicago. Probably Chicago the best.

    There are many, many places still on my want-to-see-before-I-die list but a visit to New York City always makes me happy. Leaving makes me sad because there’s still so much to do and see!

    Sooo hard. So far I think I’ve fallen most in love with Rome and Istanbul, but I hope I hope a lot more to get to know.
