By

Our family traveled to Paris, France for the first time. We were there for only a couple of days but managed to see and experience a lot with the time we had. Getting around wasn’t much trouble because Tyler’s wheelchair is light-weight and can be easily stored in regular taxis. Overall, we had smooth time getting around Paris. Most tourist attractions have free admission to people with disabilities as well as one accompanying person to assist the person in a wheelchair. Traveling around Paris was fun for our whole family.

Access to Europe Train Travel: The Eurostar and Eurail

By

Our European grand tour by train began at the London Gatwick Airport where we took a city train to the Eurostar Train located in the St Pancras Station. There’s an office in Gatwick Airport for wheelchair access support for city trains that will assist with making arrangements to take a train to the Euro Star Station, no advance notice required. My guess is that Heathrow Airport has the same service available. London cabs are expensive and traffic can be endless so seek out the train. We traveled on the Eurostar from London to Paris then back to London. Our...

My Trip to Paris, France in a Wheelchair

By

Paris, France – The overnight flight from Houston Intercontinental airport took 8 hours 45 minutes, and left town at 3 pm central standard time.  It was almost impossible for me to get any sleep.  For some reason, I’ve always had a hard time getting any on airplanes.  Just 3 or 4 hours after dinner service would’ve been nice, but no dice. We landed in Paris, France, at 6:45 am (French time).  Baggage claim was close to our gate, as was customs, and we breezed through both without any problems since we had an airport person usher us through.  He...
