Home for the Summer – How will Friends and Family Respond to Tales of Overseas Adventures?

May 9, 2010

Last time I was home, my friends and family hardly showed any interest in conversations about climbing ancient pyramids, exploring temples in Cambodia or eating from push-carts in the streets of Bangkok. I’ve been overseas for a few years now and my daily life is far different from the folks back home. I don’t want to alienate the people closest to me and so¬† I’m thinking to make this homecoming a “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” scenario. Any experiences¬† or advice to share?
