Thanks again for visiting Disabled Travelers!
You know, over the past many months we’ve covered a lot of territory, and some of our favorite sites – the ones that are most useful for handicapped travelers around the world – haven’t gotten as much attention as they used to.
In this post, we’ll visit some old favorites and also some new entries in the world of accessible travel, and take a little refresher course on what they offer and where to find them.
Quite a few new pages have popped up, too!

Hello again, folks! On today’s Disabled Travelers I want to highlight some good general resources for wheelchair and oxygen users traveling abroad. Though many airlines supply free wheelchairs for handicapped travelers on airport grounds, it’s not always clear where to find medical and assistive equipment once you’ve reached your destination. Sure, we’ve discussed these logistical issues here and there on the blog, but since this is a vital part of travel for so many of us, I thought it should all be in one place. There are also some great NEW resources for your travel use. [more]

Recently we spent a week in Hervey Bay in Australia. Off course the highlight of our trip was whale watching, even though one of us is in a wheelchair. The crew of Quick Cat 2 were very considerate in advising us to postpone our outing by a day, due to the rough conditions. The 18th of September was indeed much smoother, and we had an ample display of whale activity.
We sincerely appreciate the help and care received from the skipper and crew. The cruise was a great experience for us all.

This review was emailed to me in December 2005 from Adrian S.:
Paris on Wheels in Middleton, New Jersey – This company is actually one man, Mr. Guzman, an American. While in Paris I did walking tours with him (he pushed me in my chair), and he referred me to another good company (great service) with whom I did van tours of Paris, Versailles, and Normandy. He knows accessible Paris like no one else I’ve come across. I believe he also does work as a travel companion for trips to Paris and other places. This company was outstanding!
