Yet, still it's cheaper than to have insured a car on her name alone...

I know even people who do it here because the parent has better rating and will pay less insurance.
Many people do it in Poland. Or, as I said, two owners of the car: the parent and the child. If I am not wrong, it doesn't matter what is the share of each of them, it can even be so that the parent possesses 1% of the car and the child 99%, they are just treated as co-owners and while the child gets some price increase (with respect to the basic fare) because of the young age and lack of experience, it can also use the discounts of the parent (for the experience behind the wheel, and, if possible, for collision-less driving).

In Poland, the insurance policies often have a point telling whether the car will be used by a young driver or not. If you tell not - by law it's not forbidden that a young driver uses such a car, but in case of an accident caused by him, there might be problems.

Winter has arrived in the north. Down to -25 in northern Finland.

The coming night is cold but a warm period is approaching. Forecast for South Finland shows +7-8 degrees in the weekend. Above average in November.

Ah, so just same as in Poland.

Although after a longer time spent on a graveyard (I wonder if this - graveyards on 1st November full of people putting candles and flowers on family graves, meeting relatives there, sometimes praying for the souls of the dead - is really a Poland-specific thing, or is it a thing in other countries too) it was quite cold to me. Even though I wore a winter jacket.

yep, in Catholic regions of Germany like southern Germany. We had a holiday for this reason today.

Same in Italy, especially among elderly people.

In Poland it's whole families, no matter whether elderly or young

Then in the evening...




(probably a military grave)



But during the day:





Plus traffic jams, parking problems and changes of the traffic organization (closed or temporarily one-way streets next to graveyards because of a big number of people, temporary extra parking places and sidewalks blocked by stands selling flowers and candles).

How old are people usually when they move out from home with their parents in different countries ? In Scandinavia its as young as 18 years. Here its seen very natural and a duty in life but in Southern Europe its regarded almost insane and raising eye brows. Why is it like that if we exclude family relations and economy.

In Poland it really can vary. Some leave home when they start their studies (e.g. if they are gonna study in another city), or even high school, some stay in the same home as parents forever (either dividing the house into parts, or extending it by adding a new wing or a new level).

I have noticed that in Germany, almost all the students live in dormitories or shared flats, even if their family home is not so far away from the university. In Poland it's not the case. If someone lives 20-30 km from school or closer, he usually stays there for the period of studies.

I was 19, so was my gf. Being economically independent, however, is another story. I was 27 when I could afford to pay for my own apartment.

If I remember correctly, in Scandinavia you got paid by the government if you leave your home when attending university. Nothing of the sort is happening in Southern Europe, combined with the fact that there is no job for young people (unemployment for people less than 24 is at 35% in Italy, in some regions in the south as high as 60%). It's not just "I want to be with mama because I'm lazy"...

We moved together when we were 25 and 24. But the apartment we lived in, was property of my parents. Then 2 years later we moved to Germany.

Thats true. It is actually one of the biggest decisions to take apart from mariage and profession

What about other places outside Europe ? Anyone residing there ?

Me and my girlfriend were 24 when we left home and had to take care of everything ourselves. Lot of my friends did it earlier at 21 or 22. Next step is to build a home. We are currently renting a two room appartment. Getting a 250.000 or 300.000euro loan isnt nothing though so we'll have to think about that carefully.

Same in Poland.

Another, also finance-related thing is, in Germany the students in dormitories or shared flats usually live in individual rooms. Here, most of them share the room.

So at the family home you usually are able to have an individual room, in a dormitory or a shared flat - not.
