i live in ireland and there are many things i love about living here

 

 

- the landscape

irish landscape is honestly like stepping into a fairy tale. whenever i drive to through countryside or to the coast, i immediately feel great.

if you ever plan to visit ireland, i can recommend you to see as much of the island as you can. you won't regret it.

- the history

ireland is full of history and folklore. you can visit many historic places in ireland, like the giant's causeway, dunluce castle or the rock of cashel

I love Irish humour, it's dry, dark, bleak or we just take the piss out of everything

I love that you can meet an Irish person anywhere and be able to start chatting immediately about anything and everything

I like the rain tbh. its soothing

When we have a dry spell of weather and the whole country drives to tramore beachimstupid.png

I don't really like Irish food but  I'm always down for a roast on sundays

I agree about the history, Ireland has a really rich culture, it's fascinating

Nothing really. It's the opposite 

 

I'm actually thinking I would rather never have kids that actually let them be born here.

I wanna go back to Galway TT Irish people are so nice tbh ha~ The food is actually quite similar to german food, who is surprised lol

 

Germany: Something I really like is the landscape of the area around the Schwarzwald/Black Forest in the state Baden-Wüttemberg in the southwest of Germany, where my dad's comming from. It's beautiful and I'm always happy to be there, even though it dosen't happen many times since I live in Berlin, which is like the other side of the country.

England & the rest of Britain:

  • The Lake District
  • And as messy as it is, our history, it's so interesting
  • Our food, people always make jokes saying that we don't know food but they're just idiots that don't actually know shit about England
  • Our television shows
  • Our humour

I lived between two countries but I was born in France and I spent most of my time there so I'll just do this one chuplz.png

 

* I'd rather have snacks and candies (+ fruits juices) I can find in France than those we have in SK

* I'm not directly concerned but I think France is one of the easiest country you can get a visa to live there. France is a welcoming country somehow...? I don't know it feels like other Europe countries are stricter when it comes to immigrants. I'm probably wrong though I don't know much about these kind of things. ><

* the whole "aperitif" culture >>>>>>>> everything else

I love Bali for the landscape, tradition, religion, food, and the people. Also, the atmosphere. It feels like holiday everyday especially when you can just go straight to beach to watch sunset with a glass of pina colada after work. 

 

Also, the blue sky. I know it is weird but I am staying in Jakarta for work and somehow missing Bali's blue sky. It seems like different kind of blue.

I currently live in the U.S., but I moved from Korea in the summer of 2017. It's almost been a year since the move and quite frankly, I'm still not adjusted to life in America. I miss Korea very much. It was home for me. rlytearpls.png 
Personally, one of my favorite things about Korea is the food! I also love Korean fashion. I miss Seoul.

This really gives me wanderlust... I've been lucky enough to travel to China and to Italy in the past few years and the culture and beauty of old countries is something else.

 

Living in America, or at least the parts of America that I've been fortunate to experience, has exposed me to diversity. Less so where I grew up, moreso my college. I think the US being a cultural melting pot is its biggest strength, and one so often forgotten by those currently in power. We are a young country, made of people from around the world. "American" is not a title one can lay express claim to and be selfish with, and as people try to define and limit it it becomes something I'm increasingly less proud of. Sorry to be negative in such a beautiful thread. 

 

On the flip side, I think there are a lot of really great universities in America, and that's something I find a lot of hope in. I hope that higher education becomes more accessible to more people, and that those fortunate enough to be able access to it take advantage of the opportunity to expose themselves to diverse opinions and people.
