Leaving aside one or two tiny issues* with this SFGate travel blog post, it was fabulous to see a major paper’s web travel section talking about accessible travel.
The Disabled Traveler’s Guide to the World focuses fairly tightly on travel with mobility problems. Not quite the goal of Travels With Pain, but there’s some overlap in the needs of wheelchair-bound travelers and the needs of travelers with hidden disabilities. What I like most about this site and its accompanying free ebook is the attitude of the authors–they decided that they wanted to travel the world regardless of their physical conditions, and they refused to take ‘that’s impossible’ for an answer. They acknowledge and accept their physical limits and needs, and have found ways to get to freakin’ Antarctica despite those limits.
No, not all of us with chronic pain will be chilling on the Arctic Circle or gawking at the Taj Mahal. But I do think that a weekend getaway to the next town might be possible, yes?
