Luxurious Things

To a great extent, Europeans are living what Americans dream about.  Our cultures differ in many ways, which can make us envious of the benefits of living abroad that Europeans may take for granted.

Here are 6 amenities Europeans enjoy, according to a popular online forum.

Europeans boast about getting four to six weeks of vacation upon being hired and taking long vacations at once. Employers may give extra pay to employees around holidays. Someone said, “In Austria, paying a whole month extra for vacations and another month for Christmas is mandatory.

1. Generous Vacation Time

Employers in many countries will give extra money to employees for their vacations. Someone said, “In Austria, paying a whole month extra for vacations and another month for Christmas is mandatory. So you get paid 14 months a year, and the extra months are tax-exempt.”

2. Extra Money For Vacations

In Southern parts of Europe, patrons can enjoy cheap wine by the glass, cheap coffee, and pastries. One said, “In most of Italy, Portugal, and Spain you can get coffee and a croissant for 3 euros.”

3. Enjoy Inexpensive Wine

Europeans think it’s amazing that Americans do not have a sound healthcare system despite multiple chances to fix it. Mental health days off, especially for customer-facing jobs, are expected.

4. Public Healthcare is Affordable

One person answered the forum’s question regarding the luxury things that Europeans have, saying, “Time! I spent time abroad in Italy for school, and there was just so much less of a ‘rush’ everywhere.
