Top 10 differences between Europe and Americas
American currency is just as basic as it has: an invoice for anything for a dollar or higher (5,10,20,50, etc.), and money for anything a quarter (25 cents) or less: cents (10), nickel (5), pennies (1).
The Member States of the European Union have adopted a common currency known as the Euro (except the British were exempt from accepting the Euro). This can be extremely convenient when on vacation, but adopting the Euro has caused some difficulties in countries where prices increase sharply-such as Italy.
Europe: the European Parliament (Europarl or EP) is the directly elected parliamentary authority of the European Union (EU). Together with the Council of the European Union, it forms the bicameral legislative branch of the Union's institutions and is described as one of the most power legislative bodies in the world. The Parliament and the Council established the highest legislative body in the Union. However, their powers are limited to the capacity given to the European Community by Member States. Consequently, the organization has little control over the areas of policy held by the countries and in two of the other three pillars of the European Union.
United States: The U.S. federal government is a U.S. government agency that performs roles assigned to the Federation of individual Nations established by the Constitution. The federal government has three branches: executive, legislative, and judicial. Through a system that separates powers or checks and balances, each of these affiliates has a number of action rights, some competent authorities regulate two other branches and in turn have some of their own powers
While Americans enjoy a wide range of huge television stations via satellite or cable, then Europe (though possible to get the aforementioned selection) also has a wide range of sponsored channels nationwide offering them different types of programs (and in the case of BBC in the UK , free advertising).
Meals and etiquette
Meals and etiquette
Europeans are more likely to be found eating as a family around a much larger American dinner table that enjoys the convenience of eating in front of televisions. Therefore, fast food chains are not common in places like France and Italy as in states.
However, this is not true for all countries in Europe, as English also begins to lean for the convenience of fast food. A prominent difference is that in mainland Europe, supermarkets are much less than in the US, as a large number of Europeans still buy daily food from markets in town or downtown.
Shopping in the typical American city is a means of walking around, going inside any building that people need to explore in order to locate goods and services and purchase. There are a lot of Big Box outlets like WAL-MART, Target, Meijer and the giant home improvement store similar to Lowe's, Home Depot,...
Grocery delivery is very popular in the UK, while it is still only occasionally seen in the US. Europeans prefer outdoor stores with a wide range of different types of food available in each specific venue that suits the specific venue. In Europe, you will still see shopping on the streets higher than shopping malls, although this is beginning to change in some countries.
The United States has a language for all-American English (although some people may say that Spanish is spilling in) – Europe, on the other hand there are more languages than countries. As a result, most Europeans will learn at least one other language at school (this is usually mandatory in continental Europe, but not the UK).
English is spoken in most major cities and in the case of some people-like the Dutch, English in Europe can be better English in the UK.
For Americans, nothing kills a weekend appropriately rather than sitting around with a few good friends, taking care of a few beers and watching your favorite sports team beat opponents. America has five main sports: Baseball, American football, basketball, hockey and racing.
Now in Europe, the four main spectator sports are football (soccer), Cricket, rugby and tennis. And as we all know, your frantic attraction to your home team is the opponent of the exciting combination we have with ourselves.
Cooking in the US, for all its diversity and excitement, as its main existence for every other place. If it can be mass-produced and eaten with chips, then the Americans will also happily do it. Americans love steak, burgers, sausage, chips and chips, and our food is crushed in sauces.
Europeans have a culturally diverse history in their food and this is still apparent in every country. However, it would be wrong to consider more healthy European food – this is not necessarily so.
There is little doubt that the American favorite alcoholic beverage must be beer. In fact, the US is steeped in produced beers. The U.S. also has a rather active wine community as in the West coast of California, although other states, such as Michigan also produce wine. In the US there are many states selling alcohol before 12 midnight is not just taboo, but rather illegal. On Sundays, you are not allowed to purchase after five p.m.
In Europe, drinking age in each country is different, but for safety, please bring the ID if you drink or buy alcoholic beverages. Some countries list two legal ages: one to buy beer and wine and another one to buy more potent wines such as vodka, while other countries allow young people to drink while having dinner in the company of an adult. A major difference here is that many European families give their children a drink with dinner.
While Americans and Europeans (excluding the British) drove on the same path, there are still many different rules. Most obviously the U.S. rules allow cars to turn on red lights. Most street newspapers use the same international symbols.
In the UK, there are different cross-roads with different names: The road crossing with lights with a pedestrian in the side; A toucan junction is an intersection for pedestrian and bicycle... There are also tiger diagonal lines (alternating yellow and black stripes) to allow the cyclists to cross without dismantling, and of course, the zebra crossing.
