Austria normally is considered to be in Central Europe - but comparing Europe with bigger parts of the world I understand the division into Western/Eastern and will therefor go with:
Eastern Europe ;)

Austria should be considered in Western Europe though, at least when looking at the Iron Curtain.

Is it just me or does the curtain alongside West Germany, down to Austria with the dot in Berlin shape a human face, btw? :lol:

Thats totally right, but the iron curtain fell over 20 years ago and I have to say: Hungary and Slovakia are way "nearer" to me than Portugal/Spain (especially when living in Vienna which lies more eastern than Berlin). Therefore I go with East. Any other Germans/Austrians can take another option, I go with that, although it might seem false in a historic point of view :)

Same but more extreme example: Would you say Greece is in the east or west of europe? Historically West, geographically East...

I live in Greece, and I put Eastern Europe. I picked it purely on geography and not on culture. Anyway, the rest of Europe is ready to kick Greece out anyway...

If Austria is Eastern then so is Croatia even do I consider us Central and Mediterranean.

As I said in my first post here: If there's only west and east to chose, I'll chose east. If there were also Central-Europe as choice it would be way different ;)

Perhaps these people all over the world who are into ASOIAF don't speak english?

hmm, only 5 people form Eastern Europe... and I believe I'm the only one from Romania... I just feel so lonely!
I have only one friend that has read the series but he just keeps shoving books down my throat... :x
On the other hand, Madrid is my second home, so I suppose I'm more like half Eastern, half Western Europe....but none of my friends from there have read ASOIAF...

We're hoping for a surge of Swedish listeners now that I heard the following news from Elio and Linda :P

Quote:
SVT is Sweden's national broadcaster. They're airing GoT season 1. TV Cirkeln -- TV Circle -- is an after-show where three hosts talk about the show.

Anyways, last week for episode 7 they discussed various related sites to point fans to, and the first one they recommended as a favorite was the Podcast of Ice and Fire.

325 535 viewed the 6:th episode of GoT and 87 381 Tv-cirkeln. I wouldn't expect an immediate increase in the downloads considering they would have to read the books first, though. ;)

I live in Scotland in the UK. I know we are part of the European Union but we don't use the Euro Currency. Was never sure if UK was classed as Europe or not. Never listened in Geography but I assume it comes under western Europe.

The UK is part of Europe. We don't need to have the currency of euro's to be part of Europe or the European Union

I really want to get one of those 1,000 people that live in Antarctica. Maybe we should ship off an iPod full of all our episodes and dominate an entire continent!

There's got to be someone who's read ASOIAF down there, or atleast a few Others.

I'd send one to Svalbard as well.

You're lucky, I live in Birmingham which the rest of England barely acknowledges is part of England, let alone Europe. Ah well!

Can't believe I'm the only listener in all of Africa
To be more specific I'm from Khartoum, Sudan
But i think it's understandable since i got hooked on the show and book while in canada
Most people here don't know of HBO obviously never heard of ASOIAF

Beside that, I don't think many readers even listen to this podcast, let alone bothers to register on the forum and answer a poll.

You live in Birmingham? On purpose!?!

I think we once got lost on the M6, the experience haunts me to today.

But seriously, anywhere that's not in East Anglia scares me.


...I live a very sheltered life...
