Inspiration for the Returning Traveler
Crash, burn, recover!
Do you feel like a 5-year-old child whose mother just let go of the bike for the first time? A little uncomfortable, wobbly and not quite sure of yourself?
If so, then you’re in the right place.
Like many returning travelers, you’re probably feeling a bit lost. You’ve just had the most life-changing experience abroad and now you’re back in your home country.
While everything looks familiar, it somehow feels completely foreign. You don’t seem to fit into your former life anymore. You’ve opened your mind and your heart to the world, but no one at home quite understands your new lease on life.
No one, except for us. We’ve been there. We’ve been in your shoes and know exactly how you feel.
Your experience changed you.
Even if you didn’t expect it, you can sometimes feel like a foreigner in your native country. You might want to dig yourself into a hole and ignore the world around you instead of facing reality.
Experiences that change us, shape us. Your new global perspective can lead you toward a more fulfilling life — one that YOU create.
If your life was profoundly impacted by your time abroad, then you should be using your experiences going forward. And, fortunately, we’re here to give you the boost of inspiration you need to figure out how to do that!
In our quarterly magazine, we feature articles from travelers who have not only been inspired by their travels, but have used that inspiration. They lead lives that might not follow the conventional path, but fulfill their passions and satisfy their thirst for travel.
Learn from them and become inspired by them.
Grab inspiration…and share your own.
Native Foreigner, however, isn’t just about inspiring you, but also about giving you the opportunity to inspire others.
We want to HEAR your stories, SEE your photos and be a part of your life. We want your own travel experiences to inspire others to lead a life that is filled with memorable travel moments.
We want to connect you.
We are travelers who have studied, volunteered and lived abroad. Native Foreigner is an entire community of travelers. Now, or at some point in our lives, we have had to make the transition from being a traveler with wanderlust to a lost soul in our home country.
We want you to reflect on your time abroad and interact with others.
Inspire. Share. Connect.
Native Foreigner is a bit like the hovering mother who watches her child take his first stab at riding a bike. We see your potential and offer you encouragement. We know that you might crash a few times and feel the burn of the pain. But ultimately, you recover.
Are you ready to move forward?
