It’s Time to Travel

Traveling by plane, train or automobile can be a daunting task for people with disabilities. But, that shouldn’t stop you from exploring the world. A number of resources are available to make traveling a more enjoyable experience.

I came across a website that was shared by one of my Facebook friends that presents some of the best accessible tourist destinations. TravAbility advocates for inclusive tourism and works toward making the world accessible for all. Information is available for locations stateside, abroad and on cruise lines.

The Australian-based website also has tips for flying, which includes everything from making reservations to proper procedures for getting on and off the plane. It is definitely worth planning ahead when traveling with extra gear like a wheelchair or other devices.

If you have a disability or have family or friends with disabilities, share your experiences in the comments below. You can also post your travel photos on the Tuesday Talk With Alex Facebook page! I will share them on my blog in the coming weeks.

Happy traveling!

About Tuesday Talk With Alex

Born in Charleston, SC, I was injured in a motor vehicle accident when I was nine months old. I acquired a C5-C6 spinal cord injury. I'm now 30 years old and I do not let my disability deter me from acheiving my goals and enjoying life. I will be sharing my experience of living with a spinal cord injury.
