On January 1, 1999, the European Union introduced its new currency: the euro. Originally, used as an exchange currency between countries within the union, whilst each nation continued to use their own currencies. Spain was one of the original European countries to adopt the Euro currency. Greece adopted the euro in 2001 and became the 12th country to join the European single currency, ditching its own currency, the drachma. They were in time to be among the first wave of countries to launch euro banknotes and coins on 1 January 2002.

At 3.8 million square miles, the USA is the world's fourth-largest country by total area and is only slightly smaller than the entire continent of Europe. Most of the country is located in central North America between Canada and Mexico. It’s the third most populated country in the world, and its most populated city is New York City.
If you want to move to the USA, you’ll need to get legal permission first. The type of visa or sponsorship you need will depend on how long you want to stay in the USA and why you’re moving. The easiest way to get permission to move to the USA is to have an employer sponsor your move. You can also be sponsored by a family member, or explore other visas like self-petition, non-immigrant work visa, and more.
Owning a home in the USA will cost you about $834/month per $100,000. So, if you’re looking at living in a house valued at $300,000, it’s likely to cost about 3 x $834 (or about $2,500 per month) to own. If you can rent a house for less than that, which is possible in lots of US cities, then renting might be better value. Another major consideration when moving to the US is health insurance, as there’s no free healthcare. This can be a large expense.
