How I See The US After Living in Eastern Europe for 5 Years
In this video I share my experience and what I learned from living abroad as an American expat in Eastern Europe and how I view America and Europe after doing so. I specifically lived in Tbilisi, Georgia; Belgrade, Serbia; and Riga, Latvia and experienced both culture shock and the reverse. There is so much I love about my home country and there's also so much that I love about Europe. Both places have molded me into who I am today.

WHAT?! You have to pay to use public toilets, and to drink water in Europe?! And cigarettes are fashionable?

I just finished a 6 week Eurotrip -- which means I've now spent more than 1 year of my life in Europe, and visited every single country on the continent (yes, all 45 countries!)
While many things are similar about American and European culture, there are plenty of little (and BIG) differences that I'd like to bring to your attention in this video!
It took me 6 weeks of compiling this footage, writing this script, and editing this video... so I hope you like it! And if you enjoy, please share with your friends :)

What It Felt Like to Move Back to America After Living In France For 7 Months
Living in different countries means that you're exposed to a different culture and a different way of life. Once adjusted to, It can be hard to return back home and go back to your old way of life, habits, and culture. This has been my experience since arriving back in the United States after living in France for 7 months. Enjoy!

We travel with a Microsoft Surface everywhere we go. I edit my videos on it & use it to backup my pictures and vides while we travel. It’s light and the best travel laptop on the market in my opinion.
We use Sony Alpha series cameras to film our videos. They are compact so you don’t look like a super tourist when you take great pictures and videos while you travel.
We use Manfrotto Tripods. They are compact, travel well, and honestly I would not use another tripod for my nice cameras.
Travel Plug that works in pretty much any country & has four USB ports. A must for any traveler.

CULTURE SHOCKS IN EUROPE!: Backpacking Europe!
I’ve discussed the Culture Shocks I experienced when moving from the US to Scotland, but I’d like to now tell you about some Culture Shocks Joe and I experienced while backpacking Europe.
1. I like speedos.
This was a shock indeed! I think some men look incredibly sexy in a speedo. In the US, guys in speedos are laughed at, but when we were in Greece Joe and I were both shocked to see how some of those guys were pulling. It. Off.
2. How safe we felt in Central Europe (central vs eastern).
Central and Eastern Europe don’t have as good of reputations as Western Europe does. In fact, after the movies Hostel and EuroTrip came out, Bratislava, Slovakia experienced a sudden drop in tourism by 75%. Joe was even surprised that these countries were prominent on my list of places to visit instead of France, Spain, and Portugal. When you first see the remaining communism buildings and graffiti, it came be intimidating, but look a little further and you’ll notice, you’re perfectly safe. We were less concerned about pickpockets, for example, in these countries than in London or Italy. I highly recommend visiting them and learning about their amazing histories.
3. Even if you don’t smoke pot in Amsterdam, you’ll smell like weed for days.
….for….days. …It was so strong smelling… Everyone thought we were pot heads….
4. Joe became an extrovert.
This was a very big shock. Joe can be quiet until you get to see and know his goofball self, like I’m privileged enough to. Enter backpacking Europe. Suddenly after a long day, I wanted to read in bed in the hostel and he was the one saying, “Let’s go to the common room and find people to talk to!” I have no idea what happened, but it was fun to witness.
5. American music was everywhere.
America spends so much money on it’s entertainment that it creates some high quality stuff. So maybe it shouldn’t have surprised us how far reaching those things would go. We were surprised, however, to hear American music in every country we visited! On buses, at restaurants, and in shops. It seemed to be everywhere, even if those countries and their people didn’t speak English.
6. Taxes in most EU countries are included in the price written on the tag.
This was an awesome surprise! In the US, since taxes differ from state to state, you won’t know the exact final price of your purchase from looking at the tag alone. The tag will say a price, and the tax will be added it to at the cash register. In many European countries, however, the price on the tag is exactly what you pay. How convenient!
7. Smoking indoors in some Central European countries.
In some countries in Central Europe, it is still perfectly legal and very common to smoke indoors, including in restaurants. We witnessed this in the US in some states that still had smoking versus non-smoking sections, and even that was a shock, but there weren’t even any sections in the Czech Republic, for example. We were lucky to have had great weather while we were there, because many of our meals were eaten outside so that at least the wind would help keep the smoke at bay.
Thanks so much for watching! I’d love to hear about some culture shocks you had while traveling so comment below with your stories! If you liked this video please give it a thumbs up and subscribe if you haven’t already. See you again soon! Bye!
Europe Travel Ban Explained - [Why Americans AREN'T Allowed]
Who can travel to Europe this summer? ✈️ Which countries are restricted? ???? Is your country allowed? I break it down for you in this EU Travel Update.
Beginning July 1, the E.U.’s 27 member states plus Norway, Switzerland, Iceland, and Liechtenstein will restrict travelers from countries with COVID-19 infection rates above the E.U. average of 16 cases per 100,000 people.
Every two weeks thereafter, E.U. officials will assess each country’s new rate of infection, circulation levels, and general aptitude in crisis management (I.E., contact tracing, testing, containment, treating, and reporting) to see which countries will be approved or restricted further.

Why I Moved From Miami to Madrid | Vlog 2019
WHY I MOVED FROM MIAMI TO MADRID | Vlog 2019
So after a lot of deliberation (in my head) about whether or not I was brave enough to sit down and film a sit down vlog, I decided to just fucking do it and get over myself.
As much as I love making videos, I was always one that loved staying behind the camera. The other side really scared the shit out of me. But after going through with what would be the biggest transition of my life, moving from the United States to Europe, I figured why the hell not? What is there to be scared of? Tell your fucking story and create whatever the hell you want to create.
So here we are.
I hope you guys enjoy this little story time about why I moved from Miami to Madrid. And again, if you're contemplating moving abroad or if you have any questions whatsoever... comment down below and I'll try to help out to the best of my ability.
I hope this inspires you to stop being scared of change and to dive head first into it instead.

8 Things That Surprise Americans About Europe
Get more Tips here!
A recent survey on Reddit asked Americans, “What was the biggest culture shock when you visited Europe?” Here are some of the resulting observations of American tourists abroad.
1. Beer in McDonalds!
Beer and other alcohols in places I wouldn’t expect to find them. It's like a land made for adults instead of children!
2. Bigger Isn’t Necessarily Better
Normal-sized bodies. Very few jacked body-builders, very few morbidly obese people. They just have generally lean, healthy physiques.
3. Perpetual Puffing
People smoking everywhere. Restaurants, street corners, cafes…
4. Penny For Your Thoughts
In Europe, you have to pay for everything. Sometimes even to use the bathroom, get used to it!
5. The World Didn’t Begin in 1776
The sense of history and age that is everywhere. Buildings that are hundreds and thousands of years old, roads that have been walked for a hundred generations, etc.
All the Dutch seem to speak five languages but act really humble about it and say that their English is terrible.
7. Tolerant and Open Minded
There's so much culture that you just have to be open minded to get along.
8. Savor the Moments vs Go-Go-Go
You’re expected to sit down or stand at the bar and drink your coffee slowly and meals last hours and start way later than they do in the US.

Why I Left America More Than 10 Years Ago
Why I left America is not why most people seem to think. In this video, I'll talk about some of the reasons why I left the USA and what was behind the decision. Why I left my country is not easy to fully describe and I may make a follow-up video to this at some point. Describing in just one video all of the moments that brought me to my decision I've found is not enough. I'm just one of many Americans who've left the USA, and I decided to make this video for every nationality including other Americans leaving the USA and wanting to hear the experience and opinions of someone who has already done it. I did leave with the intention of leaving America for good, but who knows? The future is always in motion. As an Italian-American who was eligible for Italian citizenship via Jure Sanguinis, expat life in Italy and living abroad seemed to make the most sense to me.
