Americans in Other Countries
It’s high tourist season in Europe. Everywhere you look, people are coming out of the woodwork to get a glance at this painting or climb that mountain. They’re everywhere! Each country has its own quirky travelers, and there is something that labels them as being from their homes.
Americans, we are no different, and yes, we stand out in a crowd.
People wear t-shirts all over the world, but where I come from (and yes I am very guilty of this) we like to wear giant over sized Tees. People dress nice here every day; it’s like a constant fashion show over here. Giant t-shirts don’t cut it.
Everyone talks about how loud Americans are, and I, an American girl, am here to let all of you know, that it is the TRUTH. We are loud as crap. I mean, loud. Y’all don’t even know. I was in line at the airport behind a bunch of American kids, and I was able to hear every detail of this one girls exploits from her trip in Italy. Y’all…. it’s bad.
Not Able to Hold Our Booze
I don’t care how hard you partied in college or how many shots you did that one time, you cannot and will never be able to drink like the people here. They have been drinking a lot longer than you and are better at it. Plus, when Americans go out in other places, it isn’t all party party like it is back home. Sometimes, you go to a pub and it’s actually chill, not raging like places back home.
The term : Football
Literally everywhere else in the world, Football is Soccer, and our football is referred to as American Football. Please do not try to argue with them about the difference in Soccer and Football.
Not everywhere bumps and grinds and does nasty stuff on the dance floor. It’s actually really nice to just let loose and get a little nuts. Let your arms fly and your hair shake in your own space. Not everyone wants to be all up in your business.
Now there is nothing wrong with any of these! I’m guilty of each one and more! Lord knows I’m the loudest person in a room and wear sandals when it’s 50 degrees out and look like that of a hoochy on the dance floor (sorry mom). You can take the girl out of America, but you can’t take the American out of the girl.
