What is Culture Shock? How does it develop over time? Here you can find an introduction to culture shock and accounts from expats about their experience with it.
If you have ever felt in the wrong place after moving to a new city, or went through a stage of continuously criticizing people around you after expatriating, or felt irritable after relocating, you’ve probably suffered from culture shock.
You may not even have known you were suffering from culture shock.
Did you experienced some to several of the following symptoms sometime after relocating abroad or to another part of your own country?
Even when people have the opportunity and the willingness to move their whole life abroad for whatever reason, it can be difficult to choose what country is the best.
Some have a dream country, but it’s not like that for everybody. Many just would know they want to move abroad, but aren’t sure where to.
I’ve personally been through that: years ago I knew for sure I wanted to leave Italy (or I should say flee), but I had no idea which country best suited my needs and my nature.
I knew for sure that I wanted to move to a less-corrupted country. I liked the abundance of opportunities that the US can offer. I loved Australia’s quality of life. I was attracted by the culture of some European countries like the UK, Switzerland and Germany.
