Settling into a new city or a new country is always a scary thought. Leaving your home, parents, friends, and your comfort zone and shifting to a place that you have probably never seen before is an experience of mixed emotions. While it makes you independent, conscious and focused on yourself, you also miss the pampering of your home.
