When coming home...

  • Emotions Nikola faced - Very sad and was very lost at home and was crying all the time. Felt very alone.
  • What had changed - Not easy to find a job. Difficult to make money. Lost many friends.
  • Biggest stress - Society. 
  • How Nikola supported herself - Implemented things from the new culture she experienced. Cooking and listening to music. Visiting old places. Spend time on her own and putting two cultures together. Getting back into sports.
  • How did her mindset change - Very tough as in Africa there is time for everything. Felt more happy and free. 'Pole Pole' just slow down and take it easy. I was relaxed and happy and loved myself.
  • 3 Lessons learned from travel and reverse culture shock
  1. Everything has its limits and its different in different cultures.
  2. Being kind, help people and smile, it will come back to you.
  3. Its very important to be a bit wild but also be humble.
  • Advise to herself for returning home - Make time for myself to put together my thoughts and leasons.
