If you have a disability or illness you may be nervous about traveling. And that’s understandable. There’s a lot that goes into traveling when you’re completely healthy, so adding something like a medical condition to the mix can definitely complicate things. But it can be done, and we think it should be done. We truly believe that travel can be therapeutic. Not only has traveling helped both of us cope with Sarah having the incurable disease lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM), but it has also helped her lead a healthier lifestyle.

We’ve traveled to nearly 60 countries in the nine years since Sarah’s diagnosis. And we spent a full year on the road. We’ve always included information about accessibility in our posts about the places we visit, but we’ve started writing and curating dedicated accessible travel guides.

Along the way, we’ve also connected with other like-minded people who love to travel despite what others may see as limitations. With their help, we’re happy to be able to feature diverse accessible travel tips on a variety of topics. From traveling with a chronic illness, to dealing with medical devices and medication on the road, to wheelchair travel, we cover a lot of ground.

Hopefully you find some inspiration or practical tips to help you overcome any hesitation and get out there and see the world.
