    I was born in America

    so technically I'm American, but my parents and grandparents are European. I have a question for Europeans. When growing up, were your parents really strict? Did your mother baby you if you are a boy, or treat you like an adult if you are a girl? I realize that most American...

    I'm European and proud

    but I wish immigration stopped since it's destroying our culture and threatening to turn our continent into a shithole full of muslims....

    Today Greek population is voting on a

    referendum to approve or reject the bailout conditions imposed by the IMF/EU. I am not taking sides if the good guys are Greece or the European Union. For I believe there are no good guys here. i cannot sympathise a country where tax evasion and corruption are so widespread...

    Hey guys! I'm, like a lot of you 100% European. As you probably understood from the title, I'm from Norway. A 17 year old girl from Norway, and I'm proud of it! I love my country, even though a lot of people have never heard about it, or doesn't even know where it is on the map...

    Just stating the obvious.

    .. Eventually what i'd like to do is to have thousands of EP experiences stating the obvious so that you, dear reader, can miss the ones that count.

    British-european

    I take pride in being from the UK but also that is worth very little if I'm not European. I don't like Euro-skeptics and believe their arguments are very flawed. I would like to quote a phrase commonly used by Bill Clinton - It's the economy, stupid. The EU is our economy, the...

    I've been living in Sweden

    for 5 years and am always surprised at how Swedes say things like "I'm going on holidays to Europe" as if they aren't Europeans. Annoying!

    Mixed Breed

    People always ask me where I'm from, because my accent is not the same as theirs. Born in one country. Lived over twenty in another. Went to find my roots in another and now in the country where my ancestors were born. So I could say I'm European next time someone asks. But after...

    The National Front has been the leading party

    in France in the elections for the European Parliament. A great victory for the supporters of National Sovereignity against globalisation and multiculturalism. Once again, France shows us the way.

    Truly Amazing!

    I am Irish and proud, especially when I travel and people ask me where I'm from. Many perceive the Irish as great fun with a great sense of humour and talkative. Most of us really are! Although we speak English we are very different from our UK, US, and Australian counterparts. I...

    I feel more an European nationalist

    than one from my own country. But this does not prevent me from realising that Europe is going not only through a deep economic crisis, but through a heavy moral decay that started longer ago than its financial counterpart. And no, I don't want the political union of the...

    Proud Europeans.. Hmm... :S

    Well, sort of. I call myself 'Euro-Caribbean'.

    The white part of my ancestry [which is the majority] is all European, as one would expect. Scottish, Irish, English, French, Dutch, German, Italian, Spanish. Possibly some others that I haven't proven yet. My great-great grandfather came to the Caribbean from Scotland [Argyll...
