Disabled Travel with Chris is Dedicated to Providing Information and Assistance for Travelers With Disabilities
Hi, I’m Chris. I don’t travel full-time, and I am not full-time travel blogger. I’m a tax accountant by trade, but I have been traveling for several years visiting 33 states and 19 different countries so far. I also have Myotonia Congenita, a rare type of Muscular Dystrophy.
A few years ago, I started having weakness in my legs and arms which has now progressed to having to use a wheelchair for most activities. While this has not stopped me from traveling, it has slowed me down and required alterations in my attempt to explore the world.
The world is just waiting for you to explore it and nowadays having a disability is no barrier to having that dream vacation that you’ve always wanted. Sure, it’ll take a bit of planning but what vacation doesn’t?
Travel by people with disabilities, also known as “disabled travel” or “accessible travel,” is on the rise. The travel industry is waking up to the special needs of travelers with disabilities by providing more services and greater accommodation.
Since I have performed tons of research on disabled travel and being a Disabled Traveler and Senior Citizens myself, my goal is to share my travel experiences with other Seniors, Wheelchair-Users and Slow Walkers. After all, travel is about having firsthand encounters with the world, learning and growing every step of the way. My goal is to help guide and inspire your travels through any assistance I can supply with travel guides, sharing valuable tips, telling real and honest accounts of my adventures along with posting photos of my explorations and adventures. I hope you enjoy my website, and that I can pass on some of the information I have learned along the way being a Disabled Traveler.
