Culture shock happens to the best of us. In case you don’t know, culture shock is described as the disorientation someone may experience when they have been exposed to a culture with which they are unfamiliar. I’ve travelled to 19 countries since my childhood.

O’ahu: A Tropical Getaway for All Tastes and Styles In the past 15 months, I’ve been all over North America taking road trips and daytrips for business and pleasure.

New York City is known as the awe-evoking city that never sleeps because there is simply so much to see and do.
Holding out a banana slowly, I’m unsure of what to expect. In a heartbeat, a massive trunk snatches the tiny piece of fruit from my bare hand and whisks it into his mouth. Astonished, I face the 10,000 pound Asian elephant in disbelief. It’s not every day that you get to hang out with an elephant.
