I'm in the UK - not Great Britain. Great Britain is used inaccurately to refer to the whole of the United Kingdom when it actually only refers to the main island. The full name for the UK is "The United Kingdoms of Great Britain and Northern Ireland". So I live in Great Britain (Wales) but the nation I live in is the United Kingdom. The two are not synonymous.

Just a small nitpick. :P

Not a nitpick at all!  I really appreciate the information and adjusted the poll.  I like geography and remember when I was a kid and learned that "England" was not the official name of the UK.  So do you have a "word" to classify Wales, England, Scotland and Northern Ireland when you consider them individually?  (For example, I know it's not "state" or "province").

I'm moving to Europe sometime in the next 2 years, probably Lisbon or Amsterdam.
Why are you moving to Europe?
Use this poll to tell everyone where you are from:

Historically:

England and Scotland are their own nations. Wales is a principality of England. Northern Ireland is a province of England.

In modern time:

We're all our own nations united under one Queen. It's quite a touchy subject really. I know a lot of people don't think Wales would survive without England but if Liechtenstein, Andorra, Monaco, and other smaller countries can survive then Wales definitely can.

I'm from Finland, which I bet you know (if you know it at all) as a country of sauna, cold/snow and rally driving.

Though because of global warming the winters are warmer than they used to be. I'm just happy as it is since I don't like cold, snow is quite fun though, especially on christmas. That is something I'm used to and christmas just isn't the same without snow. Or sauna for that matter. :D Yup, sauna is the hottest place on Earth where human goes volunteerly. :D (I watched a document)

LOL, some will, deedooo said the word no long ago.
true. the word gringo is a sligtly derogatory term refering to people from the us of a used by people from mexico and south/latin america (for those of you who don't know). i like to use it(often refering to myself or my friends that don't speak the spanish at all), mostly because not many people know it here in utah.
I would like to see someone writing where he's from who doesn't have it in his profile.

gringo is used by all spanish and portuguese speaking countries with some small regional differences. in mexico it's used more to refere to US citizens. here in brazil it's anyone that's foreign. It's not derogatory, only in context. I have several foreign friends here whose nickname is "gringo" and it's not derogatory at all.

for more info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gringo

Why are you moving to Europe?
cause I have family in Europe and I don't really like it here much. it's a matter of personal identity. I think cause I was raised in a family of europeans I have a different mentality. not better nor worse, just different. I don't feel quite like myself here.

my bad. i've heard it used in a few different ways. it could be derogatory in some contexts, but as you say, it can be used differently.
