Forget Bretton Woods 2 And 3. Try ‘Deep Dark Woods’ Instead

If you've never been to Asheville, North Carolina, but you've heard of it, I'm not sure I'd recommend going out of your way. It overpromises and under-delivers, in my opinion. To be sure, Asheville isn't going to land on any "must-visit" lists for global travelers, and it isn't especially likely to attract any modern day Clark Griswolds subjecting their families to torturous cross-country road trips either.

    – Still livable at +2C
    – NATO membership
    – Not on the verge of fascism
    – Good healthcare

    1. My wife and I had a chance to move to Porto in 2016. Our hearts wanted to do it, but family responsibilities won out. We did go as far as visit, and for us at least it checked all the boxes…
