    If you count Turkey within Europe's borders, I'd like to live there by the sea. I could study ancient Byzantine, Roman and Greek history for ever. As long as Turkey remains a moderate secular Islamic country looking to the West - I could be quite happy there.

    Alternately, I'm happy living in the UK but wouldn't mind living in France or Slovakia. I like Spain and Portugal but British holidaymakers have ruined it and Portugal's seas are far too cold for my liking.

    They do remain as such, less there are Kurds around.

    Switzerland is one of the more interesting European countries to me. Not just its political system, but the mixed culture and the country's history. This does not even include the beautiful scenery. Plus, if I wanted to go to Italy, France, or Germany they're right next door.

    Winter in Italy for food, culture and weather. Summer to fall in Germany for the beer, hop fields and food.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I changed my mind, it's now Austria, they have a town called Bad Aussee.
    So follow me into the desert

    Umm... what? We have the same sort of toilets they have practically everywhere else in Europe. Did you get stranded at some out of the way refuge in the mountains with just the basic amenities or what?

    Yeah, I've seen those types of toilets at highway reststops in France and Italy. Never in Switzerland.
