LIVING WITH AUTISM

Disclaimer: some names mentioned in this post have been changed for privacy reasons.

Today I wanted to talk to you about something close to my heart. I want to talk about autism.

The first thing I want to say is there is no singular type of autism. Autism is diagnosed on a spectrum, from low-functioning to high-functioning, both of which are hugely challenging to cope with.

1 in 100 people has autism! This means roughly 700,000 people in the UK alone have autism. That's a lot of people. If you don't know someone that has autism, it's still important for you to understand it because the statistically, you are going to come across someone or have to deal with someone with autism at some point in your lifetime.

FOLLOW ME AROUND AUSTRALIA: STOP 1, PERTH (WA)

So, I’ve been thinking. For someone who's travelled a considerable amount, it is slightly shameful that this is my first travel post.

In fact, I took an entire year out – the classic gap yah – devoted to working and travelling. I am planning to write a lil’ review of each place I’ve visited so far, including the best bits, hints and tips I can remember.

This week, I am heading down under to Australia and taking you with me; to explore the land of exotic palm trees, kangaroos, koalas, and bomb-ass coffee. Honestly, the coffee is enlightening over there, which unfortunately makes all British coffee sub-par. C’mon England, let’s improve our coffee game, please.

Just sayin'
I realise that Australia, an entire continent, is a rather large undertaking for my first travel post, so I’m going to break it down chronologically.

I went to Oz for three months in April-July 2016 (which I cannot believe is already coming up two years ago) and managed to catch five flights and take multiple ten-hour coach rides. So, it makes sense to just take you on the exact route I took – minus the sweaty coach rides – and chat about my experiences in each place. Yep, expect lots of detail!

Come fly with meeeee… Let’s fly, let’s fly awaaaaay…
