Bonjour! We’ve passed the halfway mark in our Disabled Travelers tour of Paris, and today we spring ahead on the fourth stage of our trip. Our Paris access guides are about to turn tasty, as we look high and low for the best in local cuisine. You haven’t really visited Paris until you’ve sampled some of the finest French food, and we’re about to do it, with an eye toward both the most delicious and the most accessible places Paris has to offer. Without further adieu, it’s time to dig in! [more]
Bonjour! Paris is one of those rare places where one post simply wouldn’t do, and in building our Paris access guides, we’re on our way to a whopping five-part series. Today Disabled Travelers brings you some of the best hotels in Paris in our efforts to ‘get to know” one of the most enthralling historic and cultural cities anywhere in the world. [more]
Last month on Disabled Travelers, we kicked off a new feature exploring resources especially for the deaf and hard-of-hearing.
Now we continue looking at access guides, accessible cruises, and other information specifically for travelers with hearing impairment.
This is a slightly smaller niche than handicapped travel in general, but no less important, and there’s definitely a lot of great content that make your world travel goals a reality.
Now, another look into the vibrant world of deaf travel! [more]
Today, we take a little breather from our Paris access guides series “City of Lights” to see a lighted city of a very different kind: Las Vegas!
Granted, just about nobody is headed out to Vegas in the summer months, but it’ll be cooling down again before you know it: between November and February the average lows are in the 30s and 40s, with highs in the 60s.
Considering Las Vegas has some of the most famous hotels in the world, I was asked to find out just how many are truly accessible hotels … not to mention the casinos! So, here’s what I was able to turn up. [more]
Welcome back to Disabled Travelers!
On today’s blog we’ll take a look at the latest news around the world for handicapped travelers.
There are quite a few stories of interest this month, some of them good news, some not-so-good, but all worthy of note.
And it’s my job to rustle them all up and showcase them all in one place, so let’s take a peek at what May has in store for us. [more]
Today on the Disabled Travelers blog, we continue our journey through the beautiful city of Paris.
There’s so much to experience here in the capital of France that I’ve decided to break things down a bit more than usual for our Paris access guides.
This time, we’ll be focused on accessibility in transportation; how to get around easily so you can take it all in and enjoy your visit.
If you’re like me, then mobility impaired access in public transportation is important to you, and I’m here to give you the inside scoop. [more]
Today on Disabled Travelers, we’ll be visiting one of the most iconic cities in Europe, Paris. Home of the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, and over two million Parisians, it’s one of the most visited cities anywhere in the world.
Some parts of the city look almost as they did hundreds of years ago, yet Paris is, according to The Economist, the most expensive city on Earth to live in!
Perhaps luckily, we at Disabled Travelers will only be visiting; join us on the banks of the Seine as we investigate mobility impaired access in this princely city and start on a series of helpful access guides for France.
Today, we focus on the legendary attractions that just about everyone will want to see. [more]
Howdy to all our loyal Disabled Traveler readers!
Last time around, we hit the streets to look at the best access guides for Krakow. As planned, we’re forging ahead to the majestic city of Warsaw, capital of Poland, to continue our journey.
As a reminder, this series is a little precursor to a trip I myself am taking in June, and I’ll be revisiting it to provide first-hand perspectives after I get back to the States.
For today, it’s on to the “phoenix city” to enjoy the wonders of Poland!
Welcome back to Disabled Travelers, friends! In our ongoing whirlwind tour of handicapped accessible travel in Scandinavia and Central Europe, we’re following my trail to a new destination today: Poland. This country is known for its exceedingly historic old cities, many of which retain flavor from the Middle Ages and beyond. As we all know, accessibility can be rough in towns that have been standing thousands of years, but we’ll be bold and check out Krakow today, with Warsaw to follow in an upcoming visit. Krakow’s Old Town, in the city center, is so beloved that it’s actually a World Heritage Site: remarkably, it’s the only UNESCO site to encompass a city center. [more]
Good day to all! As planned, today’s Disabled Travelers blog will visit Stockholm in today’s post as part two of my upcoming European odyssey. The city of Stockholm is home to over 20% of Sweden’s population and is spread across 14 islands on a very wide area. Handicapped travelers might expect some trouble navigating under such conditions, but as the second-most-visited city in all of Scandinavia, Stockholm is a model of modern excellence for travelers of all kinds.
