I’ve recently had the pleasure of travelling on a family vacation to the Bahamas. We had a great time, the weather was beautiful, the food didn’t kill us and the resort was wonderful. That being said, I’m not in a wheelchair, and neither is anyone else that was travelling with us (or anyone else at the resort, for that matter). Because we required a stroller for our young children, I got a small peak into the world of those who need to wheel around when on vacation, and I must say, it wasn’t easy.
Now, a stroller holding 2 kids and maybe 20 pounds of beach toys is not nearly as challenging to maneuver as a wheelchair that could weigh as much as 200-300 pounds, obviously. So I need your help! Email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or comment below with some of your travel stories (the good, the bad, the ugly). I want to read about your experiences with air travel, security checks, land travel, resorts, excursions…anything to do with seeing our world or just trying to relax away from home. I am doing a series of posts on accessible travelling and your insight is the best research I can do.
Thanks in advance for sharing your stories.
