 🌏 I lived on two continents.

  • Americas

    North and South America in Western Hemisphere of the Earth, the two continents so-called New World.

    I lived in both Latin and Northern Americas, including three USA states, drove twice from coast to coast, and a few times along the Pacific Coast. This continent is more beautiful than I had expected, but the West Coast feels closer to my heart.

    • California

      California, US - feels like home to me. I lived a little while in the North, but mostly in Southern California, South to Los Angeles, in San Diego and Orange Counties.

      In San Diego County I lived in La Jolla, South Park (close to Balboa Park and downtown), North Park (to the South of University street) and in Oceanside, North County.

      I moved to California to exercise outside on most days, to swim in the ocean, and to hopefully find more people who value ethical lifestyles. This is the only place I have ever chosen to live not out of circumstances, chance, or need. My biggest issues here are the price of water, real estate, and high taxes. What I love the most is the friendliness of people, like almost anywhere along the Pacific Coast, the vast variety of personalities one can meet, and the clarity of sunlight.

  • Europe


    I lived both in Western and Eastern Europe: born in the East near the Black Sea, and moved to the West (Germany, Luxembourg, France). And then even further west.

    Europe is a continent located entirely in the Northern and mostly the Eastern Hemispheres. Europe has fifty sovereign states with a total population of over 740 million. European culture is the root of so called Western civilization: ancient philosophy, Renaissance humanism, exploration and colonization, revolutions and wars, Enlightenment and industrialization, art and science, fall of dictatorships and the European Union (EU).


    Europe is the western part of Eurasia with Asia to the east they are separated by Ural Mountains and River and the Black Sea.

    Eurasia is the largest continental area on Earth. I've never been to Asia.

    • Germany


      Bundesrepublik Deutschland / The Federal Republic of Germany

      A Country in Western Europe

      Germany lies between the Baltic and North seas and the Alps. It is a federal parliamentary republic led by a chancellor, with over 80-million inhabitants and with the world's 4th-largest economy -  the most populous member state of the European Union. Germany has social security and a universal health care system, environmental protections, and a tuition-free university education.

      Its capital is Berlin, and the largest urban area is the Ruhr(Ruhrgebiet), where I lived, as well as in merged in Düsseldorf, the capital city of North Rhine-Westphalia, in the center of Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan region.

      It borders Denmark, Poland, Czech Republic, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, the Netherlands, France, and Luxembourg - I lived in the latter two as well, Paris was 4 hours away on a high-speed train.

    • Ukraine

      Ukraine, Україна

      A Country in Eastern Europe

      Ukraine is located by the Black Sea. It is the second-largest country by area in Europe with over 40-million population. Its capital is Kyiv. Its neighbors are Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Moldova, Belarus, and Russia. Ukrainians created tens of thousands of folk songs.
