I am from Illinois, USA but I love Europe and have lived in the Czech Republic since 1999. I really like historical town squares and also the mountains. So I enjoy European cities and the countryside. Prague is the most beautiful city in the world, in my opinion. The Alps are so fun to see on a motorcycle, on a snowboard or on a good pair of hiking boots. I'm a big fan of Lonely Planet guidebooks--they've taken me to some fascinating places around the world. I listen to a lot of stuff on my iPhone and have plenty of pictures from the 40 countries I've visited. Put me in a narrow street cafe with some good reading and bad weather outside and I'm happy. Send me out into the crisp air with a blue sky and I'll enjoy nature with great appreciation. I've seen a lot of beautiful places but my favorite area of the world for natural beauty and Alpine culture is the Lake Region Salzkammergut in Austria. My pet peeves are bugs, humidity, traffic and rip offs. That's why I love the cool air, spacious views and customer service of central Austria. I like the air conditioning, public transportation and prices in Prague.
