I live in the UK and I am fascinated by certain aspects of the U.S. It is to do with the way people behave. In the U.S people generally (if ATS is
anything to go by) do like to express themselves, so no wonder the best at acting and drama arguably; dynamic comes to mind, too. That is why
Hollywood is so hugely successful the world over. Hollywood even manages to work on a fairly universal level, language aside.
U.S people are more open. You have many unique and never seen before modern qualities. There is a certain egalitarian and fairness ethos healthily
alive in your culture, comparatively.
Just be careful about thinking Europe would be nice for you. Here is a funny clip from Bob Dylan when he was over here in the UK getting really
homesick back in the mid sixties. He is drunk and stoned with John Lennon in the limo and starts almost crying to go home, lol:

"Dylan: (Looking increasingly tired and distressed) I wanna go back home. I
wanna go back home, man, see a baseball game, all-night TV. I come
from a land of paradise, man.
Lennon: (In thick Northern accent, very sarcastically) Sounds great.
Dylan: Well, I could make it sound so great that you wouldn't have the
capacity to speak.
(Lennon is silent)
Dylan: (No longer "acting") Hey, I'm very sick, man. I'll be glad when this
is over, 'cos I'm getting very sick here.
Lennon: With the tremors?
Dylan: Are you getting sick here? (Pennebaker leans out of the limo and
shoots Dylan through the window) Is it pouring yet? Hey, that's a
good shot, but why don't you bring it back in 'cos it's cold. (He
scowls, then groans, struck by a wave of nausea) Aw! How far are we
from the hotel, Tom?"
France is lovely, Portugal is lovely. Everywhere has its charm.
