From what I’ve heard, the lifestyle in Europe is a lot more laid-back and toned down. They take their time to enjoy everything. In America, it’s ‘I have five minutes for lunch. I’m gonna go get this food and cram it in my face while I drive back to work.’ I don’t like that. I want a sitting-in-a-coffee-shop-looking-at-the-scenery-around-me lifestyle.”
