18 Cultural Differences Between the USA and EUROPE

  • Published on Dec 12, 2017
  • WHAT?! You have to pay to use public toilets, and to drink water in Europe?! And cigarettes are fashionable?
    It's about time someone addresses the cultural differences between the USA and Europe!
    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 :)

    If you were thinking about getting to know God and changing your life…this is the best time because the world isn’t getting any better …2 Peter 2:4-9 (MSG) tells us that…God didn’t let the rebel ANGELS off the hook, but jailed them in hell till Judgment Day. Neither did he let the ancient ungodly world off. He wiped it out with a flood, rescuing only eight people-Noah, the sole voice of righteousness, was one of them.
    God decreed destruction for the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. A mound of ashes was all that was left-grim warning to anyone bent on an ungodly life. But that good man Lot, driven nearly out of his mind by the sexual filth and perversity, was rescued. Surrounded by moral rot day after day after day, that righteous man was in constant torment. So God knows how to rescue the godly from evil trials. And he knows how to hold the feet of the wicked to the fire until Judgment Day. Don’t put GOD off any longer, this may be your only warning, I want you to make it, don’t disappoint me Luv 😊
