I have always been someone who has favoured one city over another (hence why I do my city rankings):
- San Francisco over Los Angeles
- Melbourne before Sydney
- Paris and not London
- Liverpool over Manchester
- Glasgow before Edinburgh
- Toronto before Vancouver
- Koln (Cologne) beats Bonn

Despite coming to Auckland over 30 times, Wellington continues to dazzle. I have to concede, however, that Auckland is starting to sway me.
With the bulk of Asian immigration impacting Auckland, the range of Asian food and groceries is outstanding. Auckland coffeeshops are taking on their sister city and the arts/theatre scene is becoming more captivating. There is even some fashion scene emerging! Of course Auckland Harbour joins Wellington and Sydney as world leading.
Give me a choice of where I would live, I would still choose Wellington but I will give Auckland a little more time and attention.
World cup fans will be impressed in September (although why the city could not finish a rail line to the airport is beyond me).
