Culture Shock and Moving Abroad
« on: Apr 20, 2016, 10:33 am »
This post about jobs in Dubai has been really interesting to me. As an American who is not very well traveled, I find the idea of living in another country really fascinating and I would love to hear some stories!

From SM's who have lived in countries outside of their first home - What was your experience like? What sort of "culture shock" experiences surprised you the most? Was there anything that you thought would feel really different but didn't?

I know this is very a broad topic, but I would just like to hear about other people's experiences.
