    Hi

    I just wanted to say I’ve really enjoyed reading your blog. My friend is in a wheelchair and we have a lot of trouble finding accessible places to go, travel to etc. as 23 years we are all eager to go! And I think your blog is nice, and avoids the sterile medical perspective!

    Thank you so much for the feedback :) It motivates me to continue when I hear it’s helping or inspiring accessible adventures for others.

    Hi Marina, great blog, really easy to use. Have you ever tried the undercliff walk from brighton marina to rottingdean – very accessible! Especially if you join it at Saltdean. Also the 7 sisters path is goood.
    My favourite walk is in Winchester, I think it’s called the millennium walk. It takes you through gorgeous wetlands ….very acccessible.
    I use a powertrike. Having it has been life changing!
    Let me know if you want more info about the walks I’ve mentioned.
    Harri.

      Hi Harri, Thank you very much :) Yes I know the undercliff walk and the seven sisters path too. Never been to Winchester though, but would go if it has a great wheelchair walk. Would love more info on that one, if you have any tips? Do you think it would it be suitable for the wheelchair bike?

    Hi, great blog, but let people know that there is a rule in Chamonix now that a blue badge user can only park for one day on a space…our car has been towed away and when I enquired if Chamonix was trying to put off wheelchair users, there was little response. If there is only parking for 24 hours on a blue badge place in Chamonix, then you cannot stay for a holiday of more than that time. It is a disgusting bit of make up law by the locals, but I wanted to warn others of this.

    Hi Marina,
    Just found your blog. Il De Re looks great. We love flat places. My husband and I have a side by side we call the Daisy Bell “a bicycle built for two” so we are always looking out for new places. Ive just started a webpage about the Daisy Bell because we want to try to manufacture more of them to make them available. Like you every where we go people ask about it so we have just set a company Cycle In Company to promote assisted cycling – then I found you and see thats just what you are doing so I wanted to say Hi. Our bike is a prototype but we would be interested to know what people think about it. If you get chance take a look. Best wishes. Belinda

    I’m a volunteer and a guide for Accessible Travel Netherlands. Our goal is to provide information about accessible travel in Amsterdam and surrounding cities. Many people are unaware of how accessible the Netherlands is. We can plan trips for people, arrange hotels, rent adaptable bikes, arrange for accessible taxis, and do all the detail work so people can have a fun vacation and not have to worry about what is accessible and what is not. If you are ever in the Amsterdam area, we would love to work with you and show you how accessible the city is. Our main website is http://www.accessibletravelnl.com. We are also holding a conference in March on accessible travel. You can check it out at this website: http://www.accessibletravelnl.com/projects/ACCESSTOUR-Project.

    Very helpful blog, particularly about Holland, where we’re off to next week.

    Useful to know there are some more calm places in France, too, though our problem is always getting care to help me get my husband out of bed and dressed in the mornings. We have just booked the Hotel de Rijpereilenden, who can organise care, as well as supplying hoists, electric beds, etc. Shall come back with a report when we return.

    I much appreciate your help. Could you please tell me how you got help and access to wheel chair ramp in Gare NOrd. I am traveling by myself and will need help with bags
    and getting to train as I can not walk that far. I have contacted Rail Europe here
    and in France but have gotten no help.

      I was on Eurostar so they arranged it. Try Access Plus:
      Access Plus is a free service offered to disabled passengers who require assistance at the station. If you require assistance, you should contact Access Plus at least 48 hours before departure by email (accesplus@sncf.fr) or call 0890 640 650 (from within France only).
