Both Armon-Jones and Kirner said Auckland has a reputation for “hustle-and-bustle” compared to the rest of New Zealand, but the city is still laid-back in comparison to London, Los Angeles or Sydney.

阿蒙琼斯和克恩都说,与新西兰其它地方相比,奥克兰素有“熙熙攘攘”之名。但和伦敦、洛杉矶或悉尼比起来,这个城市还算悠闲的。


In terms of neighborhoods, Auckland has a wide range to choose from. The North Shore on the Pacific Ocean is surrounded by parks and is popular with families. Hikers should consider living in West Auckland, where it is easy to hit the trail and see abundant wildlife. Those looking for a more urban experience should consider Grey Lynn, Ponsonby, Parnell or Mt Eden, where bars, boutiques and restaurants give the neighborhoods a hip vibe. Kirner also suggested Kingsland, just over the motorway from Grey Lynn. “It’s one of the up-and-coming little villages, has some great night spots and is still reasonably affordable,” he said.

说到生活社区,奥克兰有着很大的选择范围。太平洋北岸地区被公园环绕,很受家庭的欢迎。徒步旅行者可考虑住在奥克兰西部,那里方便出发还能看到丰富的野生动物。想寻找都市体验的人们,应该考虑格瑞林、庞森比、帕奈尔或者伊甸山,那里的酒吧、精品店和餐厅给社区一种时髦的感觉。克恩还推荐了金斯兰,就在通往格瑞林的高速公路上。他说:“那是一个很有前景的小村落,有一些很棒的夜总会并且价格合理。”


Charleston, United States

查尔斯顿,美国

With oceans, marshes and rivers at every turn, this South Carolina city has a tranquil outdoor environment that helps keep residents in good spirits. “In some cities, rudeness is contagious,” said Michael Shemtov, originally from Israel, who has lived in the city on and off since 1996. “You have to fight for everything, no one smiles, and it just rubs off on you. In Charleston, it's the opposite. Even when you go to the department of motor vehicles, you get a smile.”

由于每个转弯处都有海洋、沼泽和河流包围着,这座南卡罗来那的城市有着宁静的室外环境,这使得居民们保持良好的精神状态。“在有些城市,粗鲁是会传染的,”米切尔·赛姆多夫说,他来自以色列,从1996年起就生活在这个城市。“你必须争取一切,没有人微笑,继而你的微笑就被擦掉了。但在查尔斯顿,情况恰恰相反。即使你去机动车辆部门,也会被微笑相迎。”


Like many southern US cities, Charleston moves at a slower pace. People take time to sit outside, talk to neighbors and walk to dinner. Many people from bigger US cities are moving to Charleston, Shemtov said, transforming the city into a creative town with strong support for the arts.

像许多美国南部城市一样,查尔斯顿发展速度较慢。人民会花时间坐在室外、和邻居聊天、走着去吃晚饭。很多美国大城市的居民正在移居查尔斯顿,据赛姆多夫说,这使得查尔斯顿逐渐转变成有强大艺术支撑的创造性城镇。
