Travelling With a Disability

What Disability? Lets Travel!

Millions of people around the UK and all over the world suffer from one disability or another… or even multiple! I know we all say, they are the same person disability or not… and do you know what?! I most certainly agree. Take the ‘dis’ away and you are left with ability. Whether you have a disability or not, you still have the ability to get out there and live the dream. The ability to travel and enjoy holidays is for everyone. When leaving college, sixth form or the comfort of your own home and mothers cooking, we all find that urge to head out into the adventures of the world and try our very best to devour the vast sense of responsibility and freedom that it brings. This is no different to those working a type of disability, whether it be physically or mentally.

Holidays for some can present major challenges and those can feel that they have to miss out on these experiences because of it. But, the can-do spirit of the human race never stops anyone. The passion and determination of those competing in the Paralympics have given many with disabilities the self-confidence and drive to do what they can and what they want to do. Anyway, less of the woffle and more of the talk, check out some of these holiday adventures that major challenges can’t even stop.
