Where do I come from?
I am living in my birth town Simbach, which is a small town (10.000 inh.) right on the border between Bavaria / Germany and Austria. On the other (austrian) side of the river between the two countries lies Braunau (20.000 inh.) which some of you may know as the birthplace of an evil man of darkest european history.
Simbach is on the german side but I am actually austrian (because my parents are) which is no big deal except I did not have to serve the army ;)
Living in the heart of central europe allows me to do a lot of short trips / city trips. But as you know, there's so much history an beauty in europe, I will never make it through ;)
Cities where I am pretty often, as they aren't far away from me, are Salzburg (45 min) / Munich (90 min) / Vienna (2.5 hrs).
The closest place on the mediterrean sea is about 4.5 hrs away, just across the alps ;)
