Hi! 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. Cesky Krumlov is my favorite small town in Czech. The Salzkammergut in Austria is the nicest natural area in Europe. The Alps and the lakes are so fun to see on a motorcycle, on a snowboard or on a good pair of hiking boots. I'm from Illinois, USA where it's flat so I appreciate mountains. 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. My pet peeves are air pollution, bugs, heat & humidity, traffic and rip offs. That's why I love the cool fresh air of the Salzkammergut and South Bohemia and the good prices in Prague.
