When coming home...

  • Emotions Dylan faced - saw that there were parts his country/culture was not as great as he remembered. "took of the rose coloured glasses!" Felt bored.
  • Biggest Stress - Pressure to meet to social norms, feeling like an outsider in his friendship group.
  • How Dylan supported himself - Focusing on the next exciting chapter and getting back into a good routine.
  • How did his mindset change - Over emphasise the closing off of his adventure. 
  • Lessons learned from travel and reverse culture shock
  1. The world in bigger than your home country.
  2. Getting past the surface level of countries when you immerse yourself by living in that country.
  • Advise to himself for returning home - Dont get so caught up in "not fitting in anymore." There are groups of other people that you WILL relate to.
Dont get so caught up in not fitting in anymore.
