I live in Europe, in Estonia, to be specific. I think there are lots of differences. Culture is different, lifestyle is different. Geography is different in some places too, I think. I think that Europe is quite united, because there is European Union, where 27 countries belong to. We can travel between these countries without having to get a visa. If I remember correctly, we don't have to buy a visa when going from Estonia to USA too.

Oh. I didn't know that it's possible to travel from Estonia to the U.S.A without having a visa. You are very lucky dude.

I think this beneficial feature was launched some time last year. So, if you're willing to take a tour around Europe, you are welcome to visit Estonia too!:)

As far as I know, Europe is a beautiful place. Lots of places of historic relics of the Middle Ages. For example Italy, many great buildings there, the architecture still like the cities of medieval but still looks beautiful. Barcelona and Paris is another example. Europe is different from the USA, if I had to choose between a vacation to Europe or the USA, I prefer to Europe :-).

You're really friends, I also never heard of Amsterdam from a friend. According to my friend, in Amsterdam festivals are often held in the river, really it?

I live in Europe and I have visited many of the countries in Europe. I have visited the USA three times. I would say that I have seen far more of Europe than I have seen the States. I think that lots of America is modern and cars are a common way for people to get around. Europe has an excellent train system. I experienced delayed but comfortable trains when I was traveling in the USA. The saving grace was that in America they gave me a free taxi when the train arrived at midnight. It was running five hours late. Europe is made up of lots of different countries and they have different languages. In America the language is English and some people speak Spanish. In Spain they speak Spanish. In England we speak English. Each of the countries in Scandinavia have a different language: Danish, Norwegian, Swedish and Finnish. I visited Bulgaria and its script looks a bit like Russian. I went to Romania on that trip and its language is in the same script as English. Europe is totally different to the USA I think.

I've lived in Europe and has been visiting quite regularly. The cities there are more classic, and old, but very beautiful and enchanting. The people differ from each country. Dutch people loves to greet you and smile, Germans are very neat and strict people, French are more arrogant, so is Swiss. The weather in some parts are mostly cold and rarely have warm summers. If you are a tourist going to Europe, you will find it very expensive. In USA you have factory outlets everywhere, but not in Europe. In most western europe countries, the people are very individualistic.

You are right. Cities like Amsterdam, Berlin are beautiful and there are a lot of monuments.

Europe is a very big place - and a very diverse place... Dozens of cultures, histories - not to mention languages! I'm from the Uk, which is probably most like the States, and I love holidaying in Europe - you really could spend a decade travelling around and not see the same place twice. I'm a huge fan of Eastern Europe - places like Albania, Croatia, Montenegro, Poland, etc. Also Germany. I might even move there! Europe: highly recommended.

I think every country is different to be honest, i mean, we all have our own set laws, our different weather, our own language or speech plan... So yes, europe is different to the USA.. as well as many other countries!

Well, for one, Europe isn't one country, but many, and although there's differences in the political systems between the states in the US, the differences between the different European countries are bigger so comparing would take quite long time :-)
