Nicole, I remember returning home from Italy after spending six weeks there. My conversations with Italians and so many others from other countries had opened my eyes to some of the crazy things here in the U.S. that I had never thought much about.
And when I came back to friends and family, our conversations were much of the same old thing, which was hard after experiencing so many new cultures.
But, I bet it’s nice to have a few things from home again? Pets, routines, peanut butter (when I was in Italy, you couldn’t get Peanut Butter anywhere, I had withdrawals)
Great story! It brought me back!
