  • 3 Lessons learned from travel and reverse culture shock

  1. Don’t get stuck in a comfort zone, it will restrict you.

  2. Find your passion, what is it that you love?

  3. Everything works out how it should.

  • Advise to herself for returning home - Not to worry about what happens, know that it might be hard and it might be different. The travel is worth what you experience when you come home.

Having no comfort zone means that you are willing to do just do things. If you want to book a trip or go overseas, if you want to live somewhere, dont just say that you are going to do it, actually do it!
