Isn’t it nice to be part of the new environment? This will enable you to adapt to your new workplace/business place. Push yourself out of the comfort zone and be self-contended. Exploring on your own is important too because it forces you to be more independent and learn your way around. Start having memories of the best times in the new city.
Make new friends around and from within your home community/country
Staying with family makes you completely relaxed. Making friends around and from your community will make you more relaxed. Become involved in the local sports team, libraries, and after-work diners with your colleagues and the neighbor friends.
