Did you ever cancel a trip because of hip issues or other mobility impairment? Have you avoided cruises and family events that require travel for fear you’ll need oxygen mid-trip? Relax. Today’s world is more accessible than ever, and for anyone with special requirements for traveling, there’s a world of information and help waiting for you.
It’s disappointing to be left behind or to have to leave a loved one behind because of a physical limitation or special travel need. Not having everyone around diminishes the fun for those who do make the trip, especially if the trip is a family event. Out of town weddings, family celebrations, reunions and multi-generational trips are simply more fun and more memorable for everyone, when every member of the family or group can participate.
