The first time I spoke to Emily Mattinglsey was almost exactly four years ago (you can listen to our chat on Episode 26). She’d basically just arrived in Morocco looking for a little bit of life experience and a lot of surfing.
Her experience was, to me, remarkable. But I’m certain it’s similar to the experiences of many other Canadians who’ve lived abroad for a spell, and then come back home. Home isn’t the same after that length of time. And it’s likely many of those returning Canadians experienced reverse culture shock.
Find out more about Emily’s journey of self-discovery that ultimately brought her back where she started.
Check out “Reverse culture shock: what, when, and how to cope,” which is referenced and quoted in the intro to this episode.
