  • Madrid

    Just blindingly good. Best european city by miles. Cheap tube โ‚ฌ26 for 5 days unlimited use! City centre is all walkable though. 4 or 5 distinct barrios with mega nightlife- does anyone actually work?!! Architecture fabulous on every street. Museum reno sofia; the best collection of 20c art, free entry after 7pm! The locals are friendly too. Could easily move here.

  • Prague

    I visited Prague on more than one occasion and tried something new each time. I really wanted to enjoy it, but unfortunately it turned out to be one of my least favourite cities. Perhaps it was just me, but there was an overwhelming sense of distrust and dislike towards foreigners, you have to try pretty hard to blend in if you want to experience the life of a local & avoid the tourism. I met some wonderful people and and thereโ€™s some cool communities to be part of, but another extended stay

  • Valencia

    Valencia is an absolute beauty of metropolis. Wether your a nomad or full time lawyer, Valencia is epic. I have lived here for 5 years now (after planning to live for 1), I have lived in London, Hong Kong, Madrid and Paris and I choose Valencia. Incredible public transport, great lively city center, cool and gentrified inner city zones and calm and great residential areas. Beautiful Architecture and friendly people enjoying a mediterranean lifestyle in ''The healthiest city on Earth'' Love Valen

  • Paris

    Lived there last September and October and am coming back later this year. Yes, it is expensive, but after a while I learned about affordable places to eat and realized I could choose neighborhoods farther from city center, and it would still be nice. City feels super safe, even at nigh! Internet is crazy fast (I got 500mb on my airbnb) there are tons to do and see and I did not encounter the super rude Parisians people talk so much about, mostly everyone spoke English and were very polite.

    Zurich is a nice city, not very big but charming, especially the old town where you can find bars and restaurants. Good party culture, a lot of different clubs. A lot if different things to do and other cities like the capital (Bern) are within a 1 hour train ride.

  • Mexico City

    I really enjoyed my first week here, but as I got to know more locals and heard their stories, I was disturbed at the security situation. Almost everyone I met has horror stories about being robbed at gunpoint, robbed by the police, and in one case even drugged and robbed by a taxi driver. It's not even safe to walk a short distance at night (locals told me to just take Uber). Beyond the security issues, scams also abound, and the covid policy is wacky, with hand sanitizer being forced on you ev
