17 Biggest WTF Moments Americans Witnessed While Visiting Europe

When we are visiting a new place, we get the chance to see all the things that differ from the place we come from. Every country has its own system of functioning, and while some can be alike depending on the regions, if we travel from a continent to another, we are able to see a huge difference.

One Reddit user, Cyber-Gon, asked a question “Americans who visited Europe, what was your biggest WTF moment?” and the answers were wholesome. Americans shared all the things they found weirs after visiting Europe. From food portions to the health care system, here’s a list of everything that stunned American tourists in  Europe.

In Toulouse, France, I went to a nice restaurant and ordered dinner. When it arrived, I was like, ‘Where’s the rest of it?’ The waitress laughed, as she grew up there and in Canada. (I’m from Brooklyn, New York, where portions are huge.) She calmly told me to eat it and if I was still hungry to order another one. By the last bite, I was stuffed. That was my WTF moment: when I realized how rich and high quality the food was over there.

17. French butter
