Hey, I’m Julie!

I'm 37, live in a seaside town on the West coast of Scotland and work for Ericsson. I hope to move to Berlin in the next few years and continue my ambition to be a campaigner for Autism Awareness (either that or open my Autism friendly cupcakery if that doesn't work out).

I was pretty well travelled by the time I was 12 (father was in the army), lived in Berlin(hence the retirement plans), Paris, Cyprus, Ireland, Iserlohn, and then back to the UK! It's only in my adulthood that I got the taste for travelling again after my other half told me he had never been outside the UK, never mind our town!

A little more about me -

First and foremost I think it would be prudent to tell you that I'm on the autistic spectrum. Most people don't notice, or even think I have it(I was diagnosed aged 31 - news to me!) - but I think it only fair for you to know if I am going to be a guest!

To be honest it really doesn't affect me as profoundly as most people on the spectrum - I can make eye contact, I can shake hands, even the occasional hug! I do have a sound sensitivity - but it rarely interferes with my day to day life (i have great earplugs).

So onto the more interesting things to know about me -

As hinted at before - I'm an avid baker, and am part of the Depressed Cake Shop movement.

I'm a bit of a foodie (which will be plain to see when you meet my tubby self) so will be on a mission to visit some restaurants, so it will be nice to get some pointers to the great eateries of your neighbourhood!

As a guest, I am very laid back but very respectful and polite. I don't expect to be run after, although that's nice now and again! I clean up after myself and can be unobtrusive when required. That's not to say I don't like to sit down with a cup of tea and have a good natter, but if that's not your style as a host I will most certainly respect that.
