22 “culture Shocks” Encountered By This American Woman Who Moved To Australia

We heard horror stories from people who moved to the States. However, when Americans move, the cultural shock is just as significant.

Sure, there are some things the rest of the world does better: you don’t have to put taxes on existing prices, and the rest of the world isn’t just selling guns at local supermarkets.

TikTok user Kaymie Wuerfel shared some insights into migrating Down Under.

The 23-year-old woman from Florida experienced quite a cultural shock once, especially since she is a teacher, so keep in mind that phrases have different meanings despite speaking the same language.

One of her series is dedicated to her work, and it’s called Things I Had To Learn Working At An Aussie School.

Kaymie focused on both and bad. She was stunned by a national health insurance program. It seems like every American’s dream. Similarly, she was thrilled to learn that you don’t have to tip your waiters because they have actual salaries.
