The ability to adapt to new environments is something any decent traveler should have. Elephants on the road in India? Gotcha. Humidity in Thailand? No worries. Altitude in Ecuador? Give me two days.
But did you ever think you would ever have to adapt to your own environment? The one you grew up in — your natural habitat, if you will?
Slotting back into your regular life isn’t always easy when you’ve been away for months, or even years. Relearning old routines, getting to grips with the changes that took place while you were away, and figuring out how the new you fits into your old life — it might be some time before you establish a new normal and fully reintegrate.
