Default Where in Europe would you live?

I guess this question is geared more towards US and Canadian citizens. If you could live in any European country which one and why?

I've only been to the extremes...Northern and Southern Europe. I'd go with Southern myself, such as Italy or Spain. Lots more social interaction plus the food is better (IMO). Weather is better in the south, and that's not opinion.

Haven't been to the middle, but my wife loves Germany...hear lots of great stuff about Munich (work, play, beer) from German colleagues at work.

Mediterranian region for sure. After that either Germany or England.

I'm with Walker in Germany. He forgot two reasons though; there is a round of the World Rally Champoinship there now, and Porsche.

You watch rally? I'm a fan in passing, but my wife and went to Rally Mexico last year in Leon because it's only about 2 hrs from my in-laws' house in Guadalajara. We had a blast...were planning to go back this year but logistics have conspired against us. Went to Sweden for business last week and missed the rally there by one weekend...definitely would have headed up for the snow rally.
