Darren Hillock's Get Around Guide


You have seen me mention Darren Hillock and his Get Around Guide several times. It just keeps getting better!

Here's the latest from Get Around Guide:

An exclusive Q&A on disabled travel in the UK
When I read and posted about The Mersey Neurological Trust exhibition on travel for people with disabilities, I was fascinated enough with the idea that I wanted to know more. How it went, will they do it again, what insights might they have on travel by the disabled? I was fortunate to connect with Danny Start, administration and marketing officer for The Mersey Neurological Trust. We had a little Q and A, which I share here:

Feeling trapped, but determined
Bronwyn Millard fears new policies of Quantas Airlines regarding transporting certain types of wheelchairs will effectively confine her son, Shane, to his hometown.

Don't get out much eh?
UC Berkely senior Bryan Goodwin, a history major, had some insightful observations about gettting around in London.

Access to an icon
Big Ben. Yorkshire pudding. The Blackpool tramway. Icons of England all.

As always, thanks for reading,

Darren Hillock
