Cape Town - Commonly experienced by travellers, expats and exchange students, “culture shock" describes the impact of moving from a familiar culture to an unfamiliar one.
" It’s the surprise of a new environment, with new people and a new way of life. It also includes the initial separation anxieties that occur when you’re taken out of close contact with the important people in your life.
