003 – Travel and Mobility

Travel is freedom.  On the surface disability seems to limit that freedom.  But it’s not limited, just different. However you need the right mindset to overcome obstacles.  Join us as we share a conversation about what informs our approach to travel.

As a follow up to this episode, the next one will feature reactions and stories from our listeners plus our own stories of horror and hilarity from our travel experiences.  Please leave your comment below and we will feature some listener feedback on our next episode.
