Yesterday I made it to a canyon where you can get so close to the vultures, you are on eyelevel or even above them. I can't remember ever having looked down into a canyon this freaking deep. It feels way steeper than it looks in the picture.

Autistic tips for overnight trips
Being away from home overnight - no matter what the reason - has always been something I have struggled with. No matter how tired I am, the first night anywhere new I'm lucky if I get a couple of hours of light sleep - I'm on high alert all night dealing with unfamiliar smells, noises and anxiety.
If this affects you, or someone you know, here are my tips for making being away overnight as comfortable as possible.
Make sure you schedule enough downtime - this can be hard to do when you're on a trip and only have a short time to do everything you want/need to do, but having time to chill out during the day can give your senses a break and prevent you from burning out, especially if you aren't sleeping much at night. For example, if I'm on a city break, I usually go back the hotel room after lunch for a few hours. I'll doze, read, catch up on messages etc, and then have energy to go out for the evening.
Use earplugs and or/eye masks - personally I can't stand them, but I know lots of autistic people who find they make a huge difference to their ability to sleep. Alternatively, use towels/clothes to block out light coming through gaps in the doors and windows, and if you ask you may be able to get a room in a quiet part of the hotel.
Bring something that smells familiar with you - don't be embarrassed at bringing a cuddly toy that smells of home with you to help you sleep. Any true friends will not give you a hard time over it. Our sense of smell is linked to the very primitive part of our brains and can help release the hormones that help us relax. I've also heard of people bringing their own pillows from home, or even pyjamas that you've already slept in for a few nights.
Stick to a hotel chain you like - this may not always be possible in terms of avilability and budget, but the rooms in hotel chains tend to be almost identical wherever you go, which can make staying away from home less overwhelming than a random AirBnB. In the UK, my autistic sibling and I have stayed in so many Premier Inns we find we sleep about as well as we do at home.
Know your limits - it can be really hard to advocate for yourself, for example if you don't want to feel like you're spoiling the day for the people you're with. But anyone who cares about you will not want you to be in distress for their stake. This is where disclosing your needs ahead of time to pay dividends, as there should be contingency plans in place to cater to the needs of people with disabilities in the group. This kind of ties in with tip one, but be mindful that travelling in itself is exhausting and overwhelming, so be kind to yourself and be honest about how much you can handle.
As every Autistic person has different needs, not all of these tips will apply equally, but they should give you a good starting point.
