Having trouble adjusting to the new normal is… well normal. After returning home from a long trip it’s hard not to go through culture shock, or feel as though no one wants to hear about your trip anymore. Didn’t I just travel to another country? Why is my life still exactly the same as before I left?
After returning home from my last trip, it was hard to get back into my old routine. My life went back to the way it had always been despite my having copacabana beach or the Galapagos Islands. My work routine became the same, my routine at home became the same. I felt as though I needed a change.
Now I know my life will always feel different each time I return from another country. The choice is mine wether or not I notice that change and decide to live with it.
