Do British posters feel European ?

On a visit to Spain, I relaised how un-european we are.

We met a Spanish family , so I put my hand out to shake their hand and they siad 'No, a kiss'

It took us all by surprise !

There were so many different people there from all other Europe and they all seemed to have their little European things they do. It just felt really strange and my friends were saying we felt like we weren't from Europe - more like Americans.

The ' European Kiss ' thing wasnt too bad. I met this really hot guy so

Anyways so... We felt really different from everyone else. Just a very strange vibe.

The end

Re: Do British posters feel European ?

I know what you mean. I think us Brits are kind of in the middle. Americans think we're European and European's think we're Americans. LOL.

Personally living in London i feel more European but that's me.

Did that answer your question.

Well you would as there are so many different people in London.

But sure, We definately live a more American way of life.

And its strange, Like someone mentioned that I was European and I had to think about it. I had just never fully thought that I was European.

I think because we speak English we feel more closely linked to American people.

I like referring to myself as European though. The EU probably makes me feel more like that. When I went to America 2 years ago I thought they had their own weird things, they're much more religious than we are, I think, lol.

I know what he means though. I think Europeans see British people as very ' Americany ' and not steriotypically ' European '

Or am I wrong ?
