In this LIOS podcast Kathleen and Lief share the things they enjoy the most about the Old World. If you are thinking about moving to Europe, here are nine things you might not have thought of but may come to appreciate.
0:51. Minimalist Living. There is less space in Europe compared to the U.S. This will help you to downsize your home and everything you own and also to save some money.
3:04. Café Culture. In Europe, you don’t just live in your home; you live in the city. Visits to restaurants, parks, and coffee shops will become part of your daily life.
5:12. Affordable Transportation/Ease of Transportation. The transportation system in Europe is well developed so you can travel to other cities or even other countries at an affordable rate.
6:58. Good and Affordable Liquor. Places such as Spain and France are renowned by their good quality wine. In Europe, good wine and other liquors are not seen as a luxury but an affordable part of daily life.
7:57. Healthy Food. It’s difficult to eat unhealthy food in Europe. Here, there is less sugary foods and candy and more farmers market with fresh groceries.
10:42. Frequent Exercise. In Europe, you will find yourself walking everywhere. The close proximity of places and the beauty of Europe will make this a pleasant and healthy experience.
11:53. The Culture. With all the museums, architecture, bookstores, and history in Europe, you will always have something new to learn.
13:29. The Festivals. There is always something to do in Europe. Whether a weekend or summer festival, a saint’s day or a parade, you will not run out of things to do here.
13:59. Shopping and the Sense of Community. Europe has countless artisans. On your day to day errands, you will come across niche boutiques and you will get to know the owner of the shop. This can make a big city like Paris feel like a small town, creating a sense of community among people.
