Winter in Wallonia

Winter in Wallonia

As we don't like to have to wait too long for our next break, we started 2018 with a short holiday in March to Wallonia, the French speaking part of Belgium. Unfortunately this break coincided with 'the beast from the east', so the weather wasn't ideal. Accommodation...

Autumn in Aquitaine

1 September 2017 After our trip around Central Europe we were both in need of some quiet time for our next holiday. But as it includes accessible accommodation I thought it would still be nice to share it with our followers, even if it is now a while ago. On the way...

Roll’ around Central Europe part 4: Hungary

Moving on, along the Danube Well relaxed we set off on the next leg of our holiday towards Hungary where we have booked a holiday cottage for a week. Rather than taking the quickest way, along the motorway, we drive cross country to see a bit more of the Slovakian...

Roll’ around Central Europe part 3: Slovakia

The idea for this tour around Central Europe more or less started when friends told us about the possibilities for spa holidays in Slovakia. Being a full time carer plays havoc on my muscles and I quite liked the idea of a week relaxing those muscles and being...

Roll’ around Central Europe part 2: Austria

On the road For the second leg of our tour we travel on from Germany to Austria, crossing the border near Passau. The old centre of Passau is located on an island in the Danube. As the roads into the centre are quite steep and cobbled, we just make a quick stop on the...

Roll’ around Central Europe part 1: Germany

Setting off For this year's summer holiday we decided to go somewhere different. I must say that it already took me out of my comfort zone during the preparations. Even when booking I couldn't rely on my favourite foreign languages: French and English. And a lot went...

Accessible Italy

Holiday as respite As I mentioned in the last blog we like to explore our boundaries during our trips. The boundary this time was going on a fully organized trip in a coach in a group, not just the two of us. This trip especially catered for people in wheelchairs,...

Accessibility on England’s South Coast 2016

Exploring boundaries When we go on holiday we like to keep exploring our boundaries. The boundaries of what we can do despite the wheelchair and the braindamage. Little did I know at the time of planning this holiday that new boundaries would jump up! Up until now I...

Grand Celtic Tour 2015, part 3

It is nice and sunny when we arrive in Cairnryan, so we have a lovely drive to Dumfries, where we will be staying a few days. Of course there is a lot of traffic from the ferry going the same way, so the road is busy. Accommodation Originally I had booked a room in a...

Grand Celtic Tour 2015, part 2

Crossing In Roscoff we boarded a ferry of Brittany Ferries. They sail once a week from Roscoff to Cork. Sailing times depend on the time of high tide, as we found out. We arrived at the harbour around 6 in the evening. We were supposed to sail around 10 o'clock but...

Tourism and handicap

If you want to go on holiday in a wheelchair you encounter all kinds of things. Not everyone tends to understand the needs of a disabled person or his/her carer. Quite often you have to improvise, adapt to want you find, use the possibilities. Usually the devil is...

Back to Brittany, part two

As usual we could have stayed much longer in Brittany, even if the weather is not always as lovely as it was this time. In this case it was only a long detour to our other holiday destination. So after four days I pack everything in the car again and we continue our...
