  1. I love these ideas. I’m terrible at doing things out of my comfort zone, partly because of my disability I guess. I always have to plan and know where I’m going, if there is access etc. I do love trying new restaurants though, I just have to research them first.

    1. Absolutely Gemma. I realized how addicted I have become to my comfort zone, when I couldn’t get a good night sleep when I just switched sides on my bed, or slept in a different room. And the restaurants too…makes me wonder how we survived before the internet :).
