Being home after a year abroad is flat out weird. When I went to Sevilla, I didn't experience culture shock when I first arrived in Spain but when I returned to America. The same can be said about Hong Kong. I didn't really experience a culture shock going to Hong Kong but I feel it now. I think traveling through South East Asia has effected me as well.
In South East Asia, the way of living is differen and adjusting back has been a bit of a struggle. After an awful flight home from Hong Kong, I'm still jetlagged. This is longest I've gone with having jetlag too. I'm usually so good with it but this time around not so much. It's very weird hearing English all the time since I was surrounded by Cantonese mostly but slowly and surely, I'm getting used to it.
The first thing I ate was obviously Chipotle that my brother kindly bought for me. In addition to that, pizza was definitely in order. It's so good being back to have all the foods that I missed but I also realized how expensive food is here. I'm so used to paying less than a few USD on street food or at my favorite noodle stand that $8.99 for a dish just sounds so pricey to me.
Just traveling the world and sharing my adventures and experiences.
