Trains, planes and automobiles

Traveling with children brings it's own set of challenges and being on the autism spectrum adds a whole new layer. Having to stay in a car seat or plane seat for extended times, access to favorite foods and sleeping in new environments can all be issues. One flight that we took was going to last 5 hours and Ben did incredibly well during the flight but when the pilot came on after we were seated and told us we were 17th in line for take off he had a major meltdown and those 45 minutes were way worse than the whole 5 hour flight. He just knew we needed to be moving.
