Don't think so. Maybe if I would go only for the money but hey - I have skiing and mountain hiking just hour or two away, Mediterranean coast for summer vacations, closest part only one hour of driving away. No big traffic, nice nature, open people. At work I have more vacation, 8-hour workday (except when there is too much work).
Yes taxes are large, but at least I get something for that.

I have ideas of relocating to US once I finish my Ph.D. I'd settle anywhere west of the Mississippi, but would prefer to live in either a mountain state like Wyoming (where I've lived before as exchange student) or Idaho, or a desert state like Arizona or Nevada.

Maybe I should aim for Utah, which has mountains AND desert. However, I'm not the biggest fan of LDS.

If I had to choose only among big metro areas to live, my top 5 picks would be, in no particular order, Denver, Salt Lake City, Houston, Phoenix and Las Vegas.

I also can't imagine to go there. If I wanted to move somewhere I can imagine to start my new life in Czech republic, Austria or Slovenia. Maybe also Croatia. Obviously, I like ex - Habsburg countries.
