Disabled Travel and Adventures in Torrox Costa

There's a number of restrictions that face not only wheelchair users but the disabled community as a whole and some we can overcome but others, unfortunately, we can't and we have to adjust and make the most of what opportunities we are given. I don't know if I'm the only one but due to my… Continue reading Disabled Travel and Adventures in Torrox Costa

Bearing Disability Transport — Little Sea Bear

The Problems with Public Transport. Personally, I try and avoid public transport if I can help it. You never know what you are going to get from one minute to the next. At least—you don’t if you live in the United Kingdom. So far, I have travelled to Amsterdam and New York. I used their […]… Continue reading Bearing Disability Transport — Little Sea Bear

In recent years we have decided to holiday many times in Spain, during the summer. Now, I regularly get asked a question after I tell people we are going to Spain again.

The Flights Home

We regretfully packed up and headed to Orlando International airport for the journey home.    Returning the adapted vehicle and checking in we spoke to assistants about boarding the plane. Going through security, we and our bags were checked over using the same process as before.  Continuing to find this annoying, I reassured myself that this was probably… Continue reading The Flights Home

Diagon Ally VS. Hogsmeade Village – The Return

After we spent at a week in Palm Beach, resting and recuperating, we travelled back to Orlando ready for our flight home the next day.    We stayed in ‘Staybridge Suites’. In our suite we had a big bedroom and a lounge area with a sofa bed, a TV, a counter with a mini kitchen. On the morning of… Continue reading Diagon Ally VS. Hogsmeade Village – The Return
