The 5 phases of culture shock (Beth from the USA)

Getting over culture shock, finding a fulfilling job in Germany, and dealing with finding a new identity when moving away from your old one.

Beth from the USA moved to Germany to be with her husband, and she found that her adjustment period resembled the 5 stages of culture shock very closely. We talk about how she dealt with each stage, and where she is now on the curve. We also talk about how fencing is actually the perfect coronavirus sport. And, her cat makes an appearance. 

Read the blog post that we reference in the interview: The 5 phases of culture shock and how to go through smoothly
