"Hey, brothers.  I joined this group because I've been fascinated by maps since I was a kid.  I think my interest in geography started when my parents ran a trucking company during my childhood years, so I learned to read a road atlas…"

"I excelled in geography when I was in school, but fate would have me land a job working for an airline, as an expediter. Now being laid off, I decided to go back to University to take a shot at working in G.I.S."

Vladislav, I gather you are from the Czech Republic. Where exactly? I saw you studied Polish. We have a mechanical engineer and electrical engineer from Poland. He is from Kielce, Poland and she is from Zbójno in świętokrzyskie voivodeship. They are married and now have 2 lovely daughters born in the US. My family had a wonderful Polish Christmas last year with them.

Hi there Vladislav. Welcome to AoM. Also, thought I'd give you a friendly invite to check out my group, The Great Debate. Just click on "Groups." It's the one with the colorful galaxy picture. It's also one of the most active groups on AoM. In any case, great to have you aboard.
