Europe 🌍


I lived both in Western and Eastern Europe: born in the East near the Black Sea, and moved to the West (Germany, Luxembourg, France). And then even further west.

Europe is a continent located entirely in the Northern and mostly the Eastern Hemispheres. Europe has fifty sovereign states with a total population of over 740 million. European culture is the root of so called Western civilization: ancient philosophy, Renaissance humanism, exploration and colonization, revolutions and wars, Enlightenment and industrialization, art and science, fall of dictatorships and the European Union (EU).


Europe is the western part of Eurasia with Asia to the east they are separated by Ural Mountains and River and the Black Sea.

Eurasia is the largest continental area on Earth. I've never been to Asia.
