Reverse Culture Shock and The Ex-Expat Club
Talking about reverse culture shock; the peculiar, alienating feeling you get when you move back home after living the expat life.
And I do realise that I’ve not actually spoken about normal culture shock on this podcast yet (that’s a topic for the future!) but I wanted to get this one in now after the visiting home episode last month. Because a form of reverse culture shock can hit you even when you make a short visit to your home country after moving overseas.
I’ll tell you what reverse culture shock is, how it shows itself and why it happens. And, of course, I’ll share tips on how to cope and work through any reverse culture shock symptoms.
You’ll also learn the first rule of Ex-Expat Club… !
“So, here you are
too foreign for home
too foreign for here.
Never enough for both.”
