Hi fellow Atlas Obscura people ,
So I think the phenomena of “Reverse culture shock” isn’t discussed nearly enough when it comes to travelling and exploring which is strange because it is a pertinent aspect of the whole experience of travel.
I have personally experienced how alienating , disorientating and unnerving it can be on so many occasions when I’ve lived in different countries for extended periods of time and then returned to my own country.
I was wondering if any of you guys have experienced this ? If so how did you deal with it ? Did any major life decisions result from you experiencing it ?
