It’s about me, my equally limpy mother and occasional guest travellers striking out into the unknown. Travelling with a disability is possible for many people, and the costs and benefits need to be assessed by the individual in accordance with our own needs. Sometimes it sounds like there’s a one-size-fits-all attitude to disability in the travel industry. The advice given needs to go beyond “no wheelchair access in this hotel”. As independent travellers we want the info so we can do our best to work through some of the obstacles. We want to find the most adventurous things we can do safely and find out how the safe things can be adventurous. Our expeditions as people with variable disabilities will, we hope, show that sometimes problems don’t always lead to roadblocks. Sometimes they just require a detour.
