Gratitude and Inclusive Travel

| 0 Comments

Stacy Ellingen, writing in the Fond du Lac Reporter manages to touch on both Visitability and Inclusive Tourism in one short commentary:

Traveling when you have a physical disability can present different challenges. From simple things, such as finding an accessible restroom to dealing with places where there are only flights of stairs, traveling anywhere when you're in a wheelchair can prove interesting.

I have both a power wheelchair and a manual wheelchair. I use my manual chair when we go to relatives' houses (because they're not accessible) and when we fly places. When I was a lot younger, we used my manual chair more than we do now because it was a lot easier for my parents to move me around — I was smaller, and I was young enough that freedom wasn't an issue.
