Rick Steves: Temporarily Able-Bodied Ally of PwD

| 0 Comments

When I was growing up as an undergraduate at the University of Washington Rick Steves was a piano teacher and also showing the world how to travel Europe on "$5 a day."

Today he is continues "making mistakes, taking notes, and learning from them." He is still preaching the timely message, "Travel should bring us together." Here he reflects on his philosophy.





Modeling inclusion in travel before it had caught on Rick wrote Easy Access Europe with Ken Plattner in 2004.

On his site you can also see such disability movement luminaries as Susan Sygall, founder of MIUSA, adding her wisdom in the essay Resources for Disabled Travelers
