  1. I live in beautiful San Diego and we have wonderful weather most of the year. Within 15-25 minutes of my home there are plenty of beautiful beaches to choose from.

  2. I live in Munich, Germany. They call it a city, but it's a town, or even the biggest village in the world because you meet the same people everywhere. Oktoberfest is lovely but becomes a nuisance after a few years. Going to a Biergarten is really worth it and the mountains (the Alps) are near.

  13. My "town"? I wonder if it even deserves that name... Hamlet I'd call it, but it's... interesting. Especially when you´d compare it to a larger city in the same country, it´s always like going back in time. We got used to it and got to appreciate the charm of it... Though it would be nice sometimes to meet more people who can look further than this place.
