We try really hard not to let our altered life hold us back from enjoying what is also a very rich and beautiful life. But, I cant deny that we often face some challenges along the way.
In my ‘adventures of an altered life’ series I aim to share with you the ordinary fun of an extraordinary journey. This will include accounts of our days out, holidays away and general life in the fast lane.
