I live in Schagen, the Netherlands, North Holland. It's a pretty boring small town of about 21.000 people, a lot of babyboomers and not much opportunity. :nooo:

I have lived in Adelaide, South Australia for the last six years and intend to go back next year. Absolutely love that place and can't wait to be there again! (And stay!) :dance:

I won't bother you with family history to explain why I feel attracted to certain Anglo/European countries, but definitely :viking: !

Netherlands... lots and lots of bikes and paths? I think I relate to this as my home here Montreal has over the years spent a lof of money on the Bixi systems and has tons of bike paths which take you all over the city. As I'm center city, I can pretty much boot over to any part of the town by just riding over the mountain and right into work. Love it. I always get a pass every year, even if I dont get to use it so much in a week, I feel like I'm contributing to the overall "greeness" of the community. There's hundreds of stations all over Montreal, the summer pass is cheap, and the stations are solar powered... wahoooooooooooooooo...

Yes, lots and lots of bicycle paths! :laugh: I love riding! I've got a pretty mean-looking mountain bike, eventhough we don't have any mountains over here! :agreed: Cycling/riding is considered normal over here, but I understand that it's a different story in most countries! I'm glad to see that more big cities around the globe are (slowly but surely!) improving their infrastructure for cyclists. It's not that much of a big deal, if more people will use a bike more often then it saves you a lot of traffic jams, it keeps the air cleaner and you keep fit! I was one of the very few in Adelaide to actually ride a bike to work. Got yelled at sometimes! :dntknw: It was a bit of a challenge during the Summer though! (48 degrees and counting! :heat: )

Very nice place to live Montreal, reminds me a lot of my hometown, although looks a bit on the quiet edge which can be a good thing. 

I immediately recognized the Icon of Bogorodica Trojeručica, as well as the brutalist architecture such as Habitat 67.  My hometown's also filled with brutalist architecture and schools are built the same way like Pavillon Judith Jasmin in Montreal. I also have close relatives living in Toronto and I'd occasionally get pictures of Nikola Tesla next to the Niagara waterfalls.

Places filled with Brutalist architecture is commonly connected to Novi Beograd. It's an absolute heaven for rollers and bicycle trick enthusiasts, especially since most of it is right next to a river. 

If you've got more videos I'd like to watch. Thanks!

I am living in Franschhoek, Western Cape of South Africa.

it is about 70km from Cape Town, main attractions are Wine, Food, and sight seeing... that made guesthouses and hotels pop up like toadstools everywhere.

Franschhoek falls under the municipality of Stellenbosch, the previous place I lived, but work was to far away, and there is no such thing as "public transport".

I live in the USA and spent 49yrs of my life in the NE Ohio area.  The other 16yrs I lived elsewhere.  I am a retired, disabled, former enlisted member of the USAF that fixed fast jets and spent the summers of 1972 and 1973 in Southeast Asia helping end the Vietnam Conflict.  I traveled the World for free and choose to give up a promising career to raise a family.  I live in North Carolina, USA now.  I have a huge amount of experience in Science, Math, Fluid Power, Problem Solving and Inter-personal Communications.  I was the goto guy that wore many hats pursuing the need for adequate compensation.  I became a video gamer because my children were about it via console system(s) and they had enough fun to motivate me to participate, sometimes.  I have built a number of PCs - a must for a gamer with my credentials - and I prefer a PC over a console as my son is a console gamer and we share a home, so I could game with him BUT we are presently engaged in different genres'.  I enjoy pursuing answers to questions that are challenging. however I must understand enough of the criteria,  to allow me to be confident that my opinions are worthy.  A prof I enjoyed bantering with explained to myself and many others who 'hired him' that a point is reached in everyone's life where recalling a memory would become more difficult as life past, because one has to forget in order to allow new memory a placeholder.  I agree with that and I would add that recalling what was forgotten without much effort, is where the big monies are found.:dance2:
