    Hey benni

    If you don't like cold and you prefer a progressive culture, you're probably looking at California. UCSB (University of California at Santa Barbara) would be just about perfect for what you want -- great weather year-round, incredibly beautiful town, laid-back people. Some other nice towns in California to consider are Santa Cruz and San Diego. San Francisco is dreamy, but chilly most of the year and LA is a shallow, car-crazy metropolis.

    South Florida is nice, too -- you can wear flipflops and shorts all year, and there aren't too many farms in the 150 km between Miami and Palm Beach. :biggrin1: But plenty of unis and colleges to choose from, and you can swim in the ocean all year.

    Viel Gl├╝ck ... bei diesen Staaten trifft man keine schlechte Entscheidung

    PS -- I love your city. I studied there in high school and have nostalgic memories

    hey gym ^^...thanxsss for your advice :)

    i prefer to walk in shorts and flipflops every day:tongue: ...

    well i have too look for where to go... my school is working with this agency and the universitys from other countries.

    san francisco is probably the "cologne" of america? :biggrin1: lots of gay guys...^^
    like in cologne..

    a dream would be miami beach :redface:....maybe i will go there :rolleyes:

    and yeah berlin is really cultural place...multicultural... and lots of scene life and crazy people... ^^

    SF is not the cologne it used to be....it is more self-obsessed yuppies now.
    Miami is a party town, and the better you look...the more 'fun' you have...just beware...florida is where con-artists come together (there and Nevada). UC Santa Barbara and UC San Diego seem to fit your bill. I think that San Deigo-ans are very connected for the most part. If you want the Berliner experience, go for Washington DC...NYC or Boston...but they get cold
