  1. Such a great collection of cities to choose from. I am loving the elegance of Paris and the gorgeousness of London.

  2. Beautiful collection, I’d pick Venice (but of course I am biased, I just love Southern Europe ;-)).

  3. All such great cities! My vote is for a little celebration in each one!
