the mile high city

so I am spending some time in Denver over the next couple of days, with several meetings related to Catalyst and then off to Vail for some skiing with friends. Denver is a great city- a great sports town plus within two hours of basically the best skiing in North America. Being here in one of my favorite cities made me wonder what would be my top ten cities to live in around the world, if all things were equal and it was easy to travel back and forth. So here you go:

1. Auckland, New Zealand

2. Atlanta

3. Denver

4. New York

5. Edinbourgh Scotland

6. Hong Kong

7. London

8. Paris

9. Costa Del Sol, Spain

10. Palo Alto, CA

noticeably absent from this list are any cities in Italy- tough choice to leave them off, I know.
