I still remember how I struggled with culture shock in England when I relocated several years ago. It was tough for the first few months, but then I got over it. I had to anyway. Prior to my moving to England finally, I had been visiting on a yearly basis so I was familiar with the country and its culture to a certain extent. But visiting a country regularly and relocating fully are 2 very different things, as I came to understand. Culture shock affects everyone in different ways. It does not matter whether they don’t travel so often or they are regular travellers.

I relocated finally to England in 2008. There was a master degree I had interest in at the University of the West of England (UWE) in Bristol, and so I enrolled. Which is how I got here. Bristol is an amazing city. I had a lovely time studying there, and I really do miss the city. This year marks my tenth anniversary as a UK resident, which is why I felt the need to write this post.

Culture shock was a module I studied in Bristol Business School. Many people are unaware of how different cultures are, and how tricky it can be to embrace a different culture. If you have ever had to relocate, then you would know all about how hard it can be to try to make a good life in a different country, as you most likely would have experienced it first-hand.
