Things That No Longer Faze Me After Living in Europe

Not Your Average Globetrotter

Sep 29 2023 • 22 mins

Embarking on a European adventure, one is immediately greeted by the culture of public smoking, a practice that might initially shock newcomers but soon blends into the daily scenery. This is just the tip of the iceberg; the real essence of European lifestyle unfolds gradually. As you delve deeper, the bureaucratic maze emerges, teaching lessons in patience and adaptability with every step. The rhythm of life here has a unique beat, sometimes slowed down by a sudden train strike, yet the promise of exploration keeps the excitement alive. The ease of traversing through diverse cultures and landscapes, each with its unique flavor and quirks, is like turning the pages of a live history book. The culinary journey too, is a mixed bag. While the fresh pastries are a comforting embrace, the shift towards a more global food culture is palpable. And then there's the casual dance with time, especially noticeable in the southern part of europe, where life seems to pause allowing one to savor the moments. Each day in this continent peels away layers revealing a rich essence, making every encounter an invitation to explore further. This glimpse is merely a prelude to the myriad experiences awaiting the curious soul, each day promising new tales to be woven into one's own European adventure.
