Travel is for everyone. It’s not reserved for a limited few and definitely not only for able bodied travellers. Anyone can enjoy the adventure of exploring unknown places and destinations all over the world.
Travel – Anyone Can Do It!
The days of hiding, sitting at home while others explore the big, wide world out there are over. Times have changed and so has traveling for those less “able” bodied than others. Far off places and old world charms are there to be explored by all of us with an adventurous soul and itchy wheels! Many formerly and seemingly insurmountable destinations have opened their doors – and their hearts – and lets not forget: their ramps, to ensure that we can enjoy the sights just as much as any other traveler out there.
Pick a Travel Destination and Go For It
For the past 18 years, Wanda has been confined to a wheelchair. However, she is fortunate to be in a position to explore some of the most amazing sights around the world. Like any activity or undertaking in life, there are always challenges. Some are easy to overcome, while others are really hard to digest. Time and a variety of experiences are insightful teachers that leave her yearning for more.
It’s all in the planning
There is something to be said for spontaneity. However, experience has taught the valuable lesson that careful planning for that dream trip usually makes it more worthwhile. It reduces the stress of the unknown. It also eliminates most of the challenging surprises that go along with a disabled lifestyle. So pick a destination and start planning to make your trip happen.
