This is the second time I have been there since getting sick four and a half years ago. It was amazing both times, though on a personal note much more so this time because my health has noticeably improved since I went four years ago. They have done so much to honor and share theContinue reading “O’ahu (at Disney’s Aulani)”
We will be traveling in an accessible RV with my wheelchair across the Southwest from San Francisco. Our plan is to go San Francisco > Bartow > Grand Canyon > Bryce Canyon > Moab (and Arches National Park) > Santa Fe > Gallup > Mojave Desert (via Oatman)> SF
A folding power wheelchair suitable for ME/CFS and other conditions which require head support, a recline and raised feet. The headrest and raisable footrests are not included but you can add them. I think this will be a great chair for me when traveling places where I can’t use a wheelchair van and for shorter times out around my hometown, especially in tight indoor spaces like restaurants and people’s houses.
Accessible skiing at Waterville Valley has a whole “adaptive snow sports” program and they are amazing.
There is a huge range of ME/CFS and you need to tailor your travel to fit your level. You need to stay well within your safety envelope for activity when you are outside or traveling.

Tokyo is very accessible. I went on a business trip in late July-August 2019. My artwork was being shown at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo. I spent a few days installing while my husband and daughter went wandering and then we got to look around together for about a week.
We started in Marrakesh, then went on a day trip to Essaouira, the ancient city of Aït Benhaddou, the Sahara desert, Fez, Casablanca, and back to Marrakesh by way of some Roman ruins. The travel company had guides and accessible hotels for each location who met us there, and Khalid had all kinds of special extra things to show us along the way.
(writing 2/26/2021) My very first plane ride with the wheelchair was from San Francisco to Disneyland. It started and ended with disaster, but we made it! I had been warned about how to prepare the chair for flight and it survived the trip there. More on flights and transit later in post. At the ParksContinue reading “SF to Disneyland California”
