It’s actually rather difficult to express in words the emotions experienced with having my first holiday in over a decade and traveling abroad for the first time. Not forgetting that this is the first time I’ve traveled whilst living with a disability.
That moment of rolling out of the ferry at Calais and driving through France was just purely mesmerising and I was in complete awe at what I’d achieved.
I’ve gained so many precious memories and made connections with beautiful people.
What an experience! There were ups and downs, highs and lows but I wouldn’t have it any other way. My anxiety left me completely enabling me to just be in the moment with all that was.
I now have a better understanding of my ability outside of the home and what additional help I need when traveling and staying away from home.
Thank you for the freedom, I have a new taste for life and feel I’ve left one lifetime behind in exchange for another.
