Coming home from such an experience can only be understood by those who have traveled internationally. Reverse culture shock is not something we think much about. But this blog describes it well!
I can especially relate to the desire to downsize all that I own (little by North American standards, but still more than I really need). Thankfully, with travels to visit family I am only carrying a small duffel bag and I do not have to face the excess of all my “things” everyday right now.
