The Long Trip Home…

wordpress stats When you go overseas, many assume that adjusting to a foreign culture will be the hardest part of the assignment. But the challenges of returning home are often greater.

The economic worries have added another layer to the difficulties of returning home after a stint overseas. The main assumption is coming home — that can’t be hard. But it is not as smooth as you may expect.

Overseas has been the seminal experience of life. Even family members and close friends just can’t relate. Both the expatriates and people at home have changed and moved on. In somehow the host country becomes home and “home” is not the place it was.

It’s a long trip home from home.
