Returning home after a trip abroad can be thrilling. All good things must come to an end, and unfortunately, that includes travel excursions. If your time working in another nation is drawing to an end, you may feel conflicted about returning home.

Reintegrating back into your hometown, neighborhood, and life might take a long time and effort.
