Life in both places have its pro's and con's. I really enjoyed life in Europe because it was more peaceful for me and the food is natural and more healthy. The first country I played in was Macedonia and the vegetables there are really good a fresh so I lost 15 pounds my first season. People was also very peaceful and kids stayed out as late as 5am in the summer because the crime rate was so low, so just being able to go for walks at night and knowing it was safe was a plus for me. One big disadvantage of living in Europe is being away from family. My first year playing I woke up in the middle of the night and it hit me that I'm 14hours away by plane away from family and friends. Some players can't handle that but thankfully I adjusted.
