    I'll throw out a vote for some cities not mentioned:

    Tegucigalpa, Honduras


    Frankfurt (although it's mentioned once)

    Vicenza, Italy (small-town Italy is absolutely wonderul. If you think the food in Rome is good, get out into the country.)

    The Azores was also a very, very cool place. Great, great seafood and a Portugese party attitude. I was involved in a festival there that was sort of a tame running of the bulls. Absolutely awesome.

    Three Bags, I spent nearly 3 years in Ponta Delgada, the Azores, as an infant.

    My parents have always talked about how beautiful the islands were. I'd love to go back someday.

    Minus Montreal, put Calgary at the head of the class. I love this city. And throw St. John's in there. Folks, if you haven't been to any of these cities, please go. It's a trip you'll never forget.

    For an unmentioned city, Lisbon was nice. I was there during Euro 2004, which meant it was very crowded. Seems like the kind of place which you could fully see in two days. Spent a great afternoon getting bombed at the Port Tasting Institute.

    Manila is wild.
    Lagos is the scariest place I've ever been, although I was caught in a riot in Wari and got robbed in Benin.

    Calgary is very overrated. I lived there for two years, and have many friends that live there. the best thing about it is that it's close to the mountains, and if that's what you're looking for anyways you might as well just go right on to Banff or Lake Louise or wherever.

    Montreal is an awesome city. Went there a few years ago for a visit, don't know a lick of French, but it wasn't a problem. Very friendly people, tons to do and see, great night life.

    Hmmmmm, Calgary over-rated. Montreal awesome. Funny, I hadn't realized before we had different opinions. I've been having the time of my life since I moved to Calgary. Guess it's all what you make it. Because Montreal sucks ... ass.
