Welcome to Season 2.

Welcome back to season 2 of the Wanderlusters Mind podcast. Im so thrilled to be back with you in 2019 and I have some amazing chats lined up for you hear on the show.

This year Im taking a slightly different angle on the podcast and I’ll be chatting to my guests about their incredible adventures and travels and the lessons, insights, learnings and growth that they have had from them. I believe travel and adventure is an incredible catalyst for growth and transformation and my aim is to share those stories with you here on the show.

When coming home...

  • Emotions Jo faced - Resisted thinking about returning home. Looming expiry date of trip. Jo felt displaced, alone, misunderstood, sad and confused for 9-12 months after returning home.
  • What had changed - Felt like the world had stopped. Everything had changed but Jo felt grateful for the experience. 
  • How Jo supported herself - Aligned with anything that connected with who she really was. Maintaining relationships in Denmark, talking to those who were excited about her travels. When she was feeling sad, she gave herself space to process the feelings.
  • 3 Lessons learned from travel and reverse culture shock
  1. Reverse culture shock is a real thing, its a natural part of travel so take the pressure off.
  2. Home is on the inside, home is wherever you are.
  3. The relationship that you have with yourself is paramount.
  • Advise to herself for returning home - Everything will be ok, you can always choose to do something different and you have the power and the control to change things.

Jos tips for dealing with Reverse Culture shock.

  • Recognise what it looks like feels like sounds like.
  • Take the pressure off.
  • Find people who you relate too.
  • Be willing to speak up if you are struggling.
  • Follow 'sparks' of what feels interesting.
  • Know that if you return to where you travel.
Denmark taught me that I wanted to work with people and that I loved working with and meeting new people.
