A follow-up to this question: now that we've decided which European cities we're visiting, what should we do when we're there? [more inside]
What foods do I need to try in Vienna and Berlin? Are there any foods I should try to bring back? [more inside]
Ideas for respectfully avoiding cigarette smoke when visiting a strong smoking culture (especially in Wien/Vienna, but advice for other cities is very welcome too). [more inside]
Places to go and things to see (and photograph) in Berlin, Dusseldorf/Essen/Cologne and Vienna. [more inside]
I'm planning on moving to Europe at the end of this year. Most likely start out in the French countryside of Brittany, where it is semi-affordable to live. Moving from the states. Any advice on working within France and renting a flat while there. I plan to go over on my passport and extend my stay every 3 months or so. Basically looking for first hand experience from those of you who have moved from the states to France (or neighboring countries) and if you have any advice, pointers or tips to go about planning my move it would be highly appreciated. I plan to do much music while over there, but it will not generate enough to sustain a living and France is not a definite locale to start from. I have also been contemplating Vienna and Berlin. Thanks in advance and I would be very interested to hear from others who have moved or have friends who have.
