There is a tendency in the UK to forget that we are a part of Europe, and whilst we like to celebrate our differences, there is a lot that binds us to the continent, whether its similar levels of development or more or less similar cultures. This makes moving to the continent especially rewarding, as whilst there are cultural differences that will make the move exciting, there is also plenty that we have in common that should make it that little bit easier.
If you are moving to France, for example, you’ll not only discover that Britain and France share very similar cultural interests, but that we also share some pretty impressive transport links, and whilst once we could quite rightly call ourselves an ‘island’ and Europe a ‘continent’ with the Eurotunnel we are definitely both physical and ideologically part of Europe.
Of course whilst we might quite like to lump all the nations on the continent together, there is a great diversity of cultures and languages etc on the continent. And there is, of course, a great difference in moving to France as there is in moving to Germany; for example, not only is the language markedly different, but so is the culture, landscape etc.
So, why move to the continent? Well its impossible to say, as the continent is like a world in itself and promises to offer a wealth of new experiences, new culture and happy memories, and whether your moving to France or moving to Germany it’s bound to be one of the most exciting decisions you ever make!
