It is a great sight to see that countries have done and keep on doing things to accommodate every traveler, disabled or not but ravel can be pretty tricky for some non-disabled people, especially those with disabilities as there are many barriers to travel experienced by people with a disability. But would you let people (or curbs) tell you that you can’t do it? People like Renee Bruns, the person behind the travel blog Wheels Travels The World, will tell you that a wheelchair is not a hindrance to experiencing the world and its wonders.
Renee joins Andrew Jernigan and Allen Koski in an educating and inspiring episode of The New Nomad podcast. As all three have their own travel adventure stories, they shared their unique journey with the audience and discussed what societies and countries can do better when it comes to accommodating people with disabilities. As we continue to grow in terms of technology, we sometimes forget that kindness is the most important thing. So tune in to this episode and be inspired.
