When we travel we start to lean in and embrace powerful new habits. Sometimes they come naturally and go along with the mood of our journey, other times there is no choice but to be a little more courageous. Yet sometimes when we return home and leave our travels behind we also leave some incredible habits that will serve us greatly in our day to day lives. As we switch from travel mode to everyday life mode think about how you can carry forward and embody these amazing habits into your everyday life.
Margot spent 7 years living in London before returning 'home' to Australia approx 12 years ago. Whilst she loves being back and firmly believes she made the right decision to do so, the return journey was not quite as straightforward as she had anticipated. However it is these experiences that led her to start a network group called Insync aimed at helping repatriates reconnect as they return; as well as develop several career management and leadership programs in her consulting business to support both individuals and the organisations that they work for. She regularly writes and speaks on the topic of repatriation, global mobility and global careers and is passionate about helping people leverage the amazing experiences they have had as they return ‘home’.

One of the hardest things, I found when returning home from long term travel was re-establishing my friendship circles. There was a mixture of old friends, plus new ones and other friends I was meeting along the way. There were often times when I so desperately wanted to meet with an old friend and it just take off from where we left off, but instead I found that I was the one, pushing and driving and hoping the friendship would be the same, when it was never going to be that way, it had taken a new path.
