I've lived in....
Czechoslovakia. Amazing place great people very welcoming.
Germany. Again very welcoming, very correct and polite.
Holland. Weird people, very liberal but very facist at the same time. (not right wing facist)
Spain. Drunk welcoming, they just don't care about time or punctuality.
Portugal. Don't like the spanish but love the english as long as they're not vomiting in the street.
India. Insane people very welcoming
Norway. Insane alcoholics reserved but after a few drinks......they really don't like anyone non scandinavian apart from the english, they don't get on well with the Lapps.....
Italy. Just one big happy family. Capiche ?
Now living in France, for the last 7 years, I get on ok because my wife is french and we have a shop so are seen to contributing to the town economy etc but when we lived in Normandy I was spat on at work and called a 'white arab'. Depends where you are in France,the north hates the english.
It may seem the some of the above observations include alcohol but tbh the best way to get on in a culture is to go out drinking with it.
It also seems that english men are adored throughout europe, all you have to do is act like a gentleman and open doors, pull out chairs etc and you're in.
This isn't sexist, I don't know what it's like to be an englishwoman abroad.
