Travels with my Teddy Bear is the fascinating record of the author’s journeys undertaken with her beloved teddy bear, Bearsac, through familiar cities of Europe and further afield to Mongolia. It is both a travelogue that expounds the problems of travelling through different countries and cultures, and an illustration of the highs and lows of Asperger’s Syndrome, a condition characterised by issues with social and communication skills, but also by such strengths as logic, focus and loyalty. This zany Autistic female is mainly a solo traveller, but accompanied by her talking teddy bear companion, she is never alone!
An insider and female perspective of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), in a travel memoir peppered in internal musings from a mind that is wired a little differently to the ‘norm’.
Countries visited: America, Italy, Switzerland, Spain, Sri Lanka, Holland, Hungary, Croatia, Slovenia, Germany, Poland, Japan, Estonia, Latvia, Russia, Mongolia, China and 4 days on the Trans-Mongolian train.
Includes 29 colour photographs inside.
