And I've been told that Prague is so beautifull and those smalls streets and stuff...
It looks like this flood from few years back haven't affected you at all?
Getting back offtopic - growing up in Europe or some place like New York, and then moving to some less densely populated place (not going off-grid, just moving to some smaller version of newyork...) could do the trick.
Notice like few posts above someone mentions that living 30m
away from center is unbearable - it usually takes 30-45m to drive through city. So moving to Toronto, living on 100acres and driving only 30m to the city may sound like a dream come true.
