Hello, and thanks for joining us at Disabled Travelers!
By the time you read this, it will be Friday, December 30th: only a tiny ways from the new year.
And what a year it has been! Throughout 2011,
I like to think we made the Disabled Travelers blog more fun and exciting than ever before; it certainly has been a blast to write, all the way through.
So now, as we look forward to a great new year, I hope you have love and optimism in your heart – for your own future and for the future of disabled travel.
After all, we’ve discovered a lot of good news and wonderful progress in our time together. [more]
Welcome home to your spot on the web for the best in accessible travel news, Disabled Travelers!
Since December is rushing by already, I thought now would be a great time to have a little chat about what the future holds for our dear blog.
It’s been a wonderful two years running the show here at Disabled Travelers. The blog has almost 200 posts, going all the way back to 2007, and the main site — our ever-growing directory of accessible travel services — has been around nearly ten years!
Wow! As your humble host, I look forward to a fantastic 2012, and here’s how I’m planning to do it … [more]
Hello, and welcome back to Disabled Travelers!
You know, one of my favorite holidays is Thanksgiving. I love the meal, I love seeing family, and I love the whole concept behind taking some time to reflect on what’s good in life.
As disabled travelers, we face some challenges when it comes to our favorite hobby, but there are actually a lot of things going right in the world of accessible travel these days.
This post will zoom in on some of the high points we’ve hit over the course of this great year on the blog. [more]
Welcome back to the Disabled Travelers blog!
Today, I’d like to address a concern on the minds of many globetrotters, including disabled travelers and their travel companions; what’s the situation for travel in Greece?
As the birthplace of democracy and haven of so many sites that influenced ancient culture around the world, this proud country has long played host to tens of millions of tourists every year.
With recent economic trouble, many have wondered if they should put off their Greek vacations – and even if it’s safe, how’s the accessibility situation?
We hope to answer both these questions today!
Hello and welcome to all our friends out there on the internet, and new wanderers who might be visiting us from Google!
Today’s Disabled Travelers blog will see us jet off to Florida’s “Fun Coast” for one of the biggest tourist draws outside Disney: Daytona Beach.
As many of you already know, I myself am a life-long resident of Florida, and lately I’ve been eyeing the Daytona area as my next home base.
Well, there’s a lot of fun to be had in the Sunshine State, and I’ve covered a lot of it in previous posts; but Daytona is completely new to me, so let’s see what we can find up there! [more]
Last week on the Disabled Travelers blog, we talked about some good guidelines for getting the very best travel views and information when you check out an internet forum.
Now, we’ll be looking at some of the best discussion boards for disabled travelers to visit for all your travel needs.
There are great travel communities all around the Web, of course, but these stand out as credible, friendly, and super-valuable for the kind of meticulous trip planning so many disabled travelers are experts in.

Hello, greetings, and welcome!
As I promised last time, this week’s post will have us visiting Spain.
We briefly saw it long, long ago in a post about the Pyrenees Mountains, a great tourist region that provides a gateway to both France and Spain.
But this will be our first time discussing access in the warm and wonderful country itself, and once we’ve hit some of the big cities, we’ll also swing by neighboring Portugal for a peek at what it has to offer.
Without further ado, let’s get on board for wheelchair access in Madrid! [more]
Welcome back to Disabled Travelers!
As promised, today we’ll be taking a closer look at wheelchair travel in Dubai, one of the biggest tourist capitals in the entire Middle East.
If you were here last time, you saw how we got the ball rolling with a Dubai travelogue from Apparelyzed that turned out to be a great introduction to the city.
Now we build on the fun with a little more information on disabled hotels, accessible attractions, and other points of interest for disabled travelers and their traveling companions. [more]
Welcome back to Disabled Travelers!
Between writing posts, I’m planning another journey that I can’t wait to tell you all about.
Thanks to some unexpected circumstances involving my old college roommates and my continuing quest to finish a master’s degree, I find myself with a need to practice my Arabic; and that means coming up with a trip that can combine business and (accessible) pleasure.
But where to? The deliberations are over, and my traveling companions and I will be heading to Spain and then on to Dubai, in the UAE … never before seen on the Disabled Travelers blog! [more]
Hello and welcome to Disabled Travelers!
Today I’d like to take time out to extend a special thanks to those of you who’ve been with us a time.
Our loyal Disabled Travelers readers and their traveling companions have helped us reach a splendid milestone: Our parent site, disabledtravelers.com, is #1 on Google for disability travel searches!
This is a great honor, to be sure, and it has all come about thanks to your patronage.
So, what else is near the top of the list?
Today, we’ll review some of the best disabled travel sites … both the new, and old favorites that have shown up in our access guides over the months. [more]
