15 Days of Favorite Things: Day Eight

10 Favorite Cities

This one’s a bit tricky — I’m not sure I have ten favorite cities. I’m not much of a city person, really. Let me see.

  1. Portland, OR. (Hence the move)
  2. York, England (nostalgia from when I was there as an exchange student, probably, but it’s still awesome)
  3. Bath, England (SO PRETTY! Also close to Stonehenge and Avebury)
  4. Milpitas, CA (it’s my hometown, I’m kind of required, right? But in its defense, it does have really pretty hills)

Yeah. That’s about it.

Every other city I can think of, there are things I hate about it as much as things I like. Take San Francisco — it has Alcatraz (one of my favorite tourist destinations!), the Golden Gate, some truly gorgeous scenery and architecture, and a food and music/theater scene that can’t be beat. It’s also the worst place I have ever had the displeasure of driving, ever; one of the most dangerous cities for pedestrians in the nation; and filled with places that smell like pee. Plus the Bay water is covered with a sheen of oil from all the shipping (I know because I’ve been kayaking in the Bay, and it was the only time I ever kayaked without falling out. I was too scared of the gross water to fall out) and there’s no freaking parking.
