Adventure Journal ~ An Update




Greetings from Portugal.

We are so proud of Nick. He managed three flights, one of them being a long haul, with very little stress. I gave him a sleeping tablet for the overnight leg of the journey, which knocked him out for a few hours. A win. We had a couple of squeaky moments due to sensory overload, however, he responded well to some quiet reassuring words. 


He has quickly adjusted to having a new home and has already chosen 'his' couch! We have been spending our days hanging out at the apartment, visiting local areas and also venturing further afield. Yesterday was a biggie. We were out all day exploring the countryside and quaint villages. 

Today we are throwing Nick a curveball and taking him out for supper at lunch time!

  4. Hi Di, I haven't been on your blog for a while, and am so amazed by how you have managed an overseas trip with Nick. I remember your blog from a few years ago when Nick couldn't even get onto a plane, or go to a restaurant on a whim. It's just incredible how far you have all come. This is wonderful and gives people such hope. Lots of love, enjoy your travels.
