Exploring Cultural Differences – Episode 123 of The Thoughtful Travel Podcast

I’m such a fan of cultural differences that when I moved to live and work in Germany, after a couple of years in Japan and a year in Slovakia, I was pretty disappointed at first – because there weren’t enough cultural differences. Germany seemed to be quite like Australia at first (especially in comparison to Japan and Slovakia) – but fortunately, on closer inspection I found all kinds of cultural differences and it became another of my favourite “other” homes!

In this episode of The Thoughtful Travel Podcast, I speak with people who’ve spent time living in “other homes” too, including China, Spain and South Korea, and what they’ve learnt about cultural differences is fascinating.

Exploring Cultural Differences

Getting to know the cultural differences between different countries and nationalalities is one of the most fascinating parts of travelling, I think. In Episode 123 of The Thoughtful Travel Podcast I chat with three travellers who’ve experienced cultural differences in countries like China, South Korea and Spain, and I learn a whole lot in the process!

First up, I talk with Jacky Lamenzo who spent a year teaching in China with another American friend. They discovered all sorts of interesting things about being obviously foreign looking in a new country.

Next, Lindsay and Marshall who are currently living in Barcelona with their young son talk about some of the key differences between life in Spain and life back in the United States.

Finally, Sandra Muller who is an Aussie like meexplains some of what she’s learnt about South Korean cultural differences over the years, as she’s lived and worked there several times and is married to a Korean guy, too!
