There’s an actual disorder for what she experienced - Paris Syndrome
Paris syndrome (French: syndrome de Paris, Japanese: パリ症候群, pari shōkōgun) is a sense of disappointment exhibited by some individuals when visiting or going on vacation to Paris, the capital of France, who feel that the city is vastly not as "artistic" and "aesthetic" as they had expected it to be.

The syndrome is characterized by a number of psychiatric symptoms such as acute delusionalstates, hallucinations, feelings of persecution(perceptions of being a victim of prejudice, aggression, hostility and racism from others), derealization, depersonalization, anxiety, and also psychosomaticmanifestations such as dizziness, tachycardia, sweating, and others, such as vomiting. The condition is commonly viewed as a severe form of culture shock.
While the syndrome has been particularly noted among Japanese tourists, it has also affected other Asian travellers or residents temporarily living in the country, such as from China, Singapore, and South Korea.
