Followers of this blog know that I have trouble going outside or to stores, whatever.. Yet I can also go on vacations and this might cause some confused head scratching. I'll try to explain.
It's being where people can see me.. and in my mind judge me.. that bothers me the most maybe. Being inside my home is safe for me. Hardly anyone stops by. It's just me and Mr. Skittles. On rare occasions the doorbell rings? I hide.
When we travel we don't go to amusement parks or crowded places. We enjoy seeing nature, national parks and monuments.. places of historical interest. Places we can drive through. I transfer my safe place from home to the car. That's why I can do that.
We eat a lot of fast food in the car. Occasionally we go into a restaurant but it has to feel right (safe) for me first. I get out at rest areas or gas stations to use the restroom.Even those have to feel safe in order for me to get out.
It's all about what feels ok and safe for me. Mr. Skittles knows this and luckily he likes to do the same things on vacations so there's no conflict between us. So that's how I'm able to travel.
