REVERSE CULTURE SHOCK! Back to America (from Czechia)

Expats cannot go back to America without having reverse culture shock! We went back to America this summer after living in Czechia for 9 years, and it really highlighted how we've changed and actually became more used to the Czech way of doing things. Some of these shocks were totally new to me, but a lot of these "shocks" were just the way I used to do things when I grew up in California, which seem strange to me now! Have you ever experienced reverse culture shock after living outside your home country? Let me know in the comments below.

Ahoj! I'm Jen, Native Californian, living in Prague, Czech Republic for the past 9 years with my husband and our rescue dog Tobik. One fateful night, we drank a bottle of wine, threw a dart at the map, and bought one-way tickets to move our entire lives to the center of Europe! Everyday we learn something new, about Czech people, Czech culture, Czech history, Czech language and how to battle the Czech bureaucracy. Dream Prague started as a place to share what we learned with other foreigners living here.
