Culture Shock vs. Reverse Culture Shock
Stephen M. Tomic

Happy to read this. I am Colombian, have lived in the US since 2009, and go to visit my family in average once a year. Every time I go back I have these mixed feelings of happiness and reverse shock. I think it is something that will never fade, no matter where I go. It is a fairly common story among many immigrants in the US, but this is the first time I read the same story for an American living abroad, and I am glad I did.
Most Americans I have met, friends and acquaintances, never consider leaving the country for good or for long periods. Traveling is just for short trips or vacation. You are a rare species!

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
