    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...

    I Am European...sort Of

    I don't live in Europe, but all of my ancestors came from there. I have lived in a LOT of places, and travel all over, so I consider myself a world citizen...but that was not an option on the EP profile, so I choose "European" as the closest thing to what I am. I think...

    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.

    And quietly proud28 European countries will go

    to the polls this week (between 22 and 25 May 2014) to elect representatives to the European parliament which is the main check and balance to the executive of the European Union. Turnout will probably be low and, depressingly, nationalist parties like Front National (France...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    Big Bad Italy

    I do love it here! It's like a buzzing community. It's also probably the most interesting with different languages, cultures, food and all that. Surprisingly enough, being from England, I do think places like Italy are massive countries ( so USA's like it's own continent to me...

    Or Mixed White...

    My mother is a wasp (or raised, church isn't a big thing any more). So her family is generic British/ German/Italian. I say European because "white" isn't an option. So I get all the perks of the privilege and I wanted that to be known. So I still put, European.

    Proud Europeans.. Hmm... :S
