A major component of the new website, which features a cleaner, more user-friendly layout, is the new online community. This new travel community enables registered users to create a profile, post forum questions and easily connect with other returning travelers.
The re-launch coincides with the release of the latest issue of Native Foreigner Magazine, which includes a new magazine design and a shift in the editorial content. A large portion of the magazine now spotlights returning travelers who have started their own entreprenuerial travel ventures or organized charitable causes upon their return home.
“After working, studying or volunteering abroad, many travelers return home conflicted about which direction to head. Instead of burying those international experiences, Native Foreigner encourages returning travelers to evaluate how international travel changed them and to use those lessons to create a meaningful, fulfilling life,” says editor-in-chief Lindsay Hartfiel.
As more people continue to travel internationally, Native Foreigner remains a necessary resource for returning travelers dealing with reverse culture shock. New subscription options are available for universities and volunteer organizations so that Native Foreigner can serve as a primary resource for participants needing support and assistance upon their return home.
