Welcome To the Autistic Traveler!

I’m Rose, a full-time autistic traveler.

My nomadic life began in 2019, and my late diagnosis came in 2020.

Suddenly, my love of travel made sense. So did all my challenges.

But there weren’t many stories or resources for late-identified autistic travelers and nomads.

That’s why I started this travel blog about autism on the road.

I’m so glad you’re here.

Autists experience life on full blast, so let’s make the most of it.

You can’t judge a person by their looks.

But once you know the other person’s inner self, both of you can be that much closer.

From your point of view, the world of autism must look like a deeply mysterious place.

So please, spare a little time to listen to what I have to say.

And have a nice trip around our world.
