From suburban Pennsylvania to New York, Budapest, Munich & Prien, Deutschland is the land where I now live.  An important aspect of my life here in Germany is that it's easy to be green.  Recycling, cycling, regional food production, renewable energy, public transport & trains all encourage a lower impact & healthier lifestyle.  With a little time and not a lot of money, you can ride the train anywhere and everywhere.  It's fun too:  slow down, enjoy the vista & smell the roses.  Gute Reise!
