I'd call myself Northern European at least, because when you go to the Netherlands and Germany it feels very English apart from the languages spoken and the side of the road. Southern Europe, which I'd call Latin Europe, is the sort who tends to have the whole kissing each other greeting. I think Latin links the countries as well. The climate has an effect, they're Mediterranean countries, which is different from the less humid north.
I consider myself English first. I don't even see why I should call myself British, it's England which is where most people live and is the powerhouse. 15% of the UK don't living in England.

Not really. The younger German generation does consider themselves at least

Although if you asked a German
I'm sure they'd consider themselves German before European and ergo France, Italy, Spain etc.
as much European as German. This is probably aided by the brainwash we get
in school to get every iota of nationalism out of our heads (history beckons).
On the other hand, the current situation in Europa (greatly simplified: everyone
****ing up, and us paying the bill) works against that trend.

I have been to many parts of Europe, and quite frankly, I think it kinda sucks.

That's sad. Blame your parents for not taking you abroad and introducing you
to foreign cultures. Blame yourself for not exploring the richness of cultures,
languages, and cuisines which are basically on your doorstep.
I don't like their cuisine, I don't like their sports, I don't like their cultures. I was wrong, I have met Europe and I don't really like him very much.
