Recently I along with others was interviewed for a segment on airline wheelchair travel for the PBS news hour. The interview was about an hour, but they can only fit in snippets of what you say. I’m still sorry they didn’t include what I told them was the most important thing- which is that thereContinue reading “PBS News Hour Interview”
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.

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.
