Good plans keep hoildays rolling

Maureen Conwell has been partially disabled with a rare neurological disorder for 15 years. She mostly uses a walker and sometimes a wheelchair. She shares her tips on travelling with a disability. Sensible research can help make a holiday in a wheelchair an enjoyable experience.

 

WHEN I first travelled as a person with a disability five years ago I was terrified.


My husband and I have always loved to travel and have made road trips throughout Europe and the US.

 

I am lucky that my husband has no fear about driving in foreign countries, as I find organised tours too hectic.

 

So, we travel the world by car and love to go off the beaten track. At first there were so many "what ifs?". But having been there, done that, I can say there is nothing to fear except fear itself.
