Travel with Disabilities

Have you ever heard of Erik Weihenmayer? At the age of 13, this courageous man lost his vision. However, without missing a beat, he still enjoyed learning to ski and sky dive. Not only did he enjoy sports, he used his compassion and generosity to become a middle-school teacher and even a wrestling coach. Traveling with disabilities is not only possible and comfortable, but Erik Weihenmayer proved a disability does not have to keep you down. In 2001, he became the first blind person to actually climb Mt. Everest.

 

Traveling with disabilities often entails a bit of planning ahead, but if you or someone you love has a disability, traveling the world is not only possible but highly encouraged. Perseverance in overcoming obstacles often means soul searching because these days there are a lot of options and accommodations made at ensuring anyone can travel comfortably.

 

Tourism businesses within the United States are abiding by the Americans With Disabilities Act or facing stiff consequences. The results have been phenomenal. More people are finding a disability that would have had a person bed ridden for life can now be turned into an asset. Yes, you can enjoy France, Switzerland, or even the campgrounds up the mountain safely and securely regardless of your disability.

 

Ocean liners, airlines, hotels, rental vehicles, bed and breakfasts, and even amusement parks are ensuring they cater to everyone. Even individuals living with extensive disabilities are going to find that living life to its fullest takes on a whole new meaning.

 

Just like Erik Weihenmayer, you can make your dreams come true!

 

When traveling with disabilities, you will want to ensure you plan ahead. Planning ahead is a necessity. You will need medication slips, extra medication (just in case), appropriate accommodations for both you and your service animal, transportation, and even contact numbers in case of an emergency. This can often take months of planning, but once you get the hang of it, you can travel the world regardless of your disability.

 

Contact the airlines and housing accommodations before traveling; ensure the company realizes you may need something special. Even if it is as simple as a wheelchair ramp or a first floor room. Contacting the companies beforehand will ensure that you get what you need without surprising the company with your special needs once you arrive.

 

Of course, you should always plan for safety. Safety means always letting someone know where you are going, and then planning on living a full life where your disability is not in control of your destiny. Traveling with disabilities can be just as enjoyable and much more rewarding than ever imagined.

 

When you travel with disabilities, you do have to take certain precautions. But with a little planning and a big dream, you can travel the world and enjoy life on your terms. Being prepared is not as difficult as you might imagine. In fact, you will find more and more countries are catering to people of all genders, races, and disabilities.
