    Reverse/Culture Shock Experience?

    I was the same except I let my dad do all the talking in Thailand before I moved permanently, then I stopped talking to everybody full stop. Actually did not know that about the homeless people in LA but I know in Thailand there are fake monks that ask for charity which is even worse. Strange...

    Reverse/Culture Shock Experience?

    Sorry for the late repy, thought my assignments/essays were due in 1-2 weeks, then the level 4 lockdown happened in NZ, panic ensued, then boredom settled in nicely. Taken 3 days off from revision/proofreading. That's fairly normal as a teenager, definitely better than how I handled conflict...

    Reverse/Culture Shock Experience?

    Lol I went to LA twice and it was enough. Mostly a good experience but I can tell you everybody that's ever traveled there as a tourist hated it. It resembled a KUWTK show and everybody looked the same....bottle blonde, beats headphones, iphones, ipads, iAnything. I made it out with help from my...

    Reverse/Culture Shock Experience?

    Holy **** dude....there's culture shock and then there's INTENSE. I'd pay good money to see this as an independent movie, book, or a youtube video lol. Even I felt hypervigilant reading this. Looking back, was there any point in time where you felt you conducted/acted or would do differently...

    Reverse/Culture Shock Experience?

    Been there, I felt like I was being stoned to death when I decided to put an actual picture of myself instead of a cartoon/game character on the nzgamerforums and everything became discredited because of a bloody profile picture. It is extremely vicious and daunting at times when people find out...

    Reverse/Culture Shock Experience?

    Oh wow, noted. I do try my best to learn the etiquette before travelling as I've unintentionally said/done taboo things in my own country. How did you even get a trip there?

    Reverse/Culture Shock Experience?

    Huh, friend went to Germany with her Irish boyfriend and she hated how rude everybody was (then again, she was Australian and it was her first time traveling out of the country from what I knew so the fact that people didn't automatically know English was an extreme experience for her). I've...

    Reverse/Culture Shock Experience?

    Just finished my final drafts for my assignments and mostly caught up with coursework but I can now finally reply haha. Understandable with the whole marijuana thing, I mostly didn't like it when I was younger cos of the smell and mostly because I liked being a productive/functional alcoholic...

    Reverse/Culture Shock Experience?

    Far out, nobody I knew enjoyed China. Especially now lol. Best part about it was the bartering/haggling because nice things were dirt cheap in Shanghai and Beijing (which is like the New York of China in so by saying alot of Chinese don't like Beijing). Guess culture shock is conflicting for me...

    Reverse/Culture Shock Experience?

    So I'm writing my draft for my Language and Communication course in uni about when I first experienced massive culture shock and it got me curious about others experiences from either traveling to another country or coming back to theirs. Did you guys ever learn to adapt or were you just...
