Dear ALL, happy Wonderful Friday! This week we have a special guest on our blog. And today I’m taking a break and handing the mic over to Brittany Rose – a girl with positive thoughts! She is going to be talking about her blog and her travels! Let’s read it together!
My name is Brittany and I was born with a rare type of dwarfism which means I am unable to walk long distances on my own. So I travel to different places in my wheelchair and because I’m only nearly 3ft tall – yes you read that right. 🙂 I do have someone who travels with me when I travel long distances as they can help me with suitcases and it’s great as they are there for me when I need a helping hand or they can be a bodyguard in crowded places, haha.
A lot of people say and tend to think that because you’re in a wheelchair, you can’t do things. Yes that can be true in certain situations but I’m still perfectly able to travel to different destinations around the world in a wheelchair even if it does mean I need someone to travel alongside me and even if it does take a little bit more time planning on how to get transported around a certain destination. Before I make my reservation I have to make sure the accommodation has wheelchair accessible rooms and the airline I’m travelling with is ok with taking the wheelchair onto the plane (which most airlines are). So, once I sort and research these types of things out, then I really don’t have much stopping me from travelling the world in my wheelchair. Most places nowadays are getting more and more accessible for people in wheelchairs and for people who have different needs than others. That is awesome as a few years ago accommodation places and activities weren’t so accessible.
I enjoy encouraging people to travel even if they’re in a wheelchair or if they have different needs than other travellers. Because it is possible and everyone has every right to do what they love! A saying that I always go by when travelling or when I’m planning on visiting a country is ‘Where there’s a will, there is a way‘. I suppose this quote helps me with anything or with any obstacle in life. If I want to do something like travelling the world then there is a way that I can do it, whether that way is obvious or I have to think outside of the box. It is possible with most things that I want to do in my life.
You can do it!
You can travel if you want too even if you’re in a wheelchair. If you organise and plan what you’re doing when visiting a place then it shouldn’t stop you from exploring the world in a wheelchair. It hasn’t stopped me, that’s for sure.
Feel free to read and share her blog which contains travel guides, tips & tricks, posts about blogging and more!
