The Shock of Coming Home After Travelling


If you’ve ever travelled for any length of time, then you know how exciting it can be to come home. You’ll have seen new cities and countries, met new people and learned new things. But after all this excitement, there is a moment where you realize that everything is different – not just your perspective on things but also the way that people treat each other in this country. It’s not always an easy transition back into your old life

After a long time without home, you return to what you’ve known for years.

You’ve been gone for a long time, and now you’re coming home. It’s been so long since you felt the comfort of your own bed or the smell of food cooking in your kitchen that it feels like a dream.

When we travel, we often think of our homes as places where we will return to once again become familiar with our surroundings; however, returning after being away for any length of time can be an adjustment period. You may have changed while travelling and so has everything else around you–your friends and family members look different than before; old habits have changed or disappeared altogether; places where people were once gathered together are now empty spaces filled with memories instead.

Everything feels different – and it’s not just because of your new perspective.

Coming home is a mixed bag of emotions. You’re happy to be back with your family and friends, but at the same time, everything feels different. It’s not just because of your new perspective on life; you may have changed as a person since leaving home.

You might be more appreciative of things that don’t usually get much attention like fresh air or the sound of birds chirping outside your window in the morning. Or perhaps there are some things about home that feel less special now — maybe it seems smaller than before or there are fewer people around who share similar interests with you?

There are things that you may have missed, but there are also things you’ll start to appreciate even more.

  • You will appreciate your home more.
  • You will appreciate the people you care about.
  • You will appreciate your family and friends, who have been there for you throughout this whole adventure.
  • You will also start to value little things in life that make you happy, like a hot shower or fresh food!

You’ll be more aware of the small things that make your home special.

After you spend a few months away, you’ll be more aware of the small things that make your home special.

Your new perspective on life will allow you to appreciate what was always there but now seems so much more meaningful. You’ll miss the people and places that are no longer part of your life; however, it may also help motivate you to make some changes in order to keep those relationships alive and well–even if they aren’t physically close by anymore!

You will feel relaxed in familiar surroundings.

When you return home, you will feel at ease. This is because familiar surroundings provide a sense of comfort and relaxation. You can rest easy knowing that the place where you live is safe and secure, unlike when travelling where there are many unknowns.

When I came back from my travels in Europe, I felt so relaxed! It was great to be back home with my family again after spending so much time away from them for six months on end!

Coming back from travel can be hard, but it doesn’t have to be stressful

Before you leave, make sure to plan ahead. If possible, book an early flight back home so that your first day can be spent doing something fun and relaxing. That way, the transition will be less jarring when it happens.

If you’re coming back from a long trip or if this is just the first time in a while that you’ve been home for more than a few days at once (like me), then planning ahead is even more important! I found out about this last minute and didn’t have time to get much done before leaving again–so here are some tips:

  • Make sure there’s food in your house before leaving on vacation! Not only will this help prevent hunger pangs while traveling/at work/etc., but it’ll also give you something easy-to-eat when returning home after being away for so long (or even just coming back from lunch).
  • Plan activities with friends who haven’t gone traveling yet; this will give them something fun to look forward too while also allowing yourself some extra support during those first few hours/days after landing back into reality


Travelling is a great way to see the world, but it can be hard to come back home. You might find yourself feeling stressed and overwhelmed with all of the changes in your life. However, if you keep these tips in mind when returning from your travels, then you’ll find that coming back will be much easier than expected!
