  1. I am a citizen of the European union sounds wrong for some reason. When I say where I am from it is almost always a geographical term, for something like time zones or some other practical use. I don't say where I am from except for political debates where perspective matters. So, when I am asked to say where I am from the easiest answer I can give is "I am from the European Union, Germany, the central state of the northern most region of Bavaria which is called Franconia." That doesn't roll of the tough very well so usually I just say I am European.

  2. interesting how you (at 2:18) drew an arbitrary line for europe despite the lack of natural borders there 🙃

    update: in 2020 due to Wuhan Virus pandemic, european countries closed their borders even to each other.
