Make Room For The Stuttering

Traveling With Fellow Stutterers

Posted on: April 1, 2010

This is not one of my typical blog posts. Today finds me winding down a whirlwind week of traveling to a different country and meeting up with other people who stutter. I took a risk and decided to visit people I had met through the stuttering community.

The internet has made the world so much smaller that it is possible to meet people from all over the world and talk with them as if we are in the same room. So through social media networks, I have become friends with people from other parts of the world who also share the stuttering experience.

We decided we wanted to meet each other, and in this day and age, it is possible. So I have met people face-to-face that I have communicated with via Skype, face book and twitter.

Life is about taking risks, stepping out of our comfort zones and expanding our horizons. I certainly have done that this week. I plan to write about some of my experiences meeting other people who stutter from the UK. What do we have in common? What do we have different views on? How did we get along? Is stuttering, or stammering, universal?

Stay tuned. I am also going to ask my fellow travelers to write and share a bit about their journey as well.
