Travel and Culture 8/17

Carly Yuenger

On today's show we talk with Katie Krueger about her year in Senegal. In her book about her travels, Give With Gratitude: Lessons Learned Listening to West Africa, Katie tells the story of her initial culture shock and how she eventually incorporated the Senegalese way of of life into her own.

Has traveling outside your home country taught you more about the culture you grew up in? Did you struggle to break away from your cultural habits? How have you incorporated the ideals, values, and priorities of another culture into your own? Share your stories by adding a comment below.

Katie is right. Everyone will be surprised due to different culture. But we have to change ourself with culture so that we become a part of it.
