This list was a fun exercise for me to reflect on my travel experiences, and try to rank my favorite cities in the world. It was more difficult than I thought it would be, and I tried to make it as subjective as possible. I included the 10 categories because I know that people have different things they value when visiting a city (some people value food very highly, others travel to see the scenery/historical places, and others want to meet people from all over the world). Therefore, it should not only be the total ranking that matters, but which cities have the highest scores in the categories you value.
Since I am American, it is hard for me to compare US cities to cities in other parts of the world. This is a major reason I believe only one US city made my list. In hindsight, I should have included New York City in this list, although I am not sure which city I should have taken out.
This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
