Stefan, you should check out Salamanca, Spain. It's beautiful and caught my heart!
As for snow, I like it and having all the seasons is just fine. I've lived in everything from Kosovo winters with no heat to the summer in Baghdad.
Internationally, I like France and would move there in a second, and Spain and Portugal intrigue me too. Lyon France is one of my favorites, and my wife and I are also considering Zurich, Switzerland. I'm also attracted to some weird places in the Balkans.

Somewhere with little rain and between 50 and 75 degrees....Ryan
viva la revolucion !
santa fe, NM or anywhere on the Oregon coast.
I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.
Montreal, yes, but only for the warm 3 months of the year! Plus, I can't get into Quebecois French - their version of the language, that is.
I'll be boring and say Barcelona is still my favourite place I've lived. Might end up in Bali one day, where my wife used to live and work. I like Japan now, but wasn't as into it 12+ years ago when I lived there.
Not sure why ecchef is so down on Okinawa. A place whose people have the longest lifespans in the world must have something going for it besides super-cucumbers!
Hawaii sounds good!
