Mediterranean and Egypt Cruise by Wheelchair

By

INTRODUCTION There aren’t many cruise itineraries that allow you to visit 3 ancient marvels like the Colosseum in Rome, the Parthenon in Athens, and the Pyramids at Giza all in one cruise, which is why I was excited to embark on Royal Caribbean’s 12-Night Greece and Eastern Mediterranean cruise on the Legend of the Seas in June, 2009. You can’t beat the convenience of being able to see some of the most famous sites from the ancient world up close, all without having to change hotel rooms.

I am anxious. I want to GO! And finally we are boarding…a flight to...

Africa Safari Hunting Tour with a Wheelchair

By

One of the first things staring me in the face when I found out I was going to Namibia was the formidable challenge it posed. As a quadriplegic, a trip to Africa represents the ultimate quest: managing the four days of travel which would include two 16 hour flights, taking my own rifle, securing gun permits, packing ammunition, updating passports, finding a place to overnight in JoBurg (Johannesburg, South Africa), hauling an extra bag for my shower/bathroom chair, and then most important part of the equation of all… finding an accessible lodge on the other end when we arrive....
