Hello and welcome back to Disabled Travelers!

You know, one of my favorite pastimes is reading magazines, a hobby I’ve had since I was very young.

Although there are magazines out there for virtually every lifestyle and interest, it seems to me you just don’t hear much about them anymore.

Well, as much as I love the Disabled Travelers blog, there are some other outstanding sources you can enjoy in print if you feel the same way I do about this lost art form.

I’m going to share some of this week. [more]

Welcome home to the Disabled Travelers blog!

Don’t know about you, but I myself have been on a few adventures lately, as you can read in my recent posts covering Chicago.

Now that I’m home here in sunny Central Florida, I think it’s a good time to catch up on all the latest and let you know what’s out there on the news wire.

Disabled travelers and their travel companions will want to join me as we trawl through August.

It’s the last month of the “really hot” season in Florida, so here’s some really hot information! [more]

Welcome home to the Disabled Travelers blog!

Chicago is one of the most popular destinations for disabled travelers and their travel companions, and posts about it have always been some of the most popular.

Now that I’ve spent some time taking in the sights, I think it’s a great time to give my impressions on accessible attractions and other amenities in the Windy City.

Here’s a quick summation of my trip and my thoughts. [more]

Hello, hello, hello! Welcome back to Disabled Travelers!

As we speak, I’m ramping down from my trip, sorting out the cameras, and making sure everything is re-packed.

I’ll still be in transit for a while longer, so today’s accessible travel post will focus on some general lessons about travel this trip has really highlighted.

This might give you a new view on issues like air travel, disabled hotels, and a few other things disabled travelers and their travel companions are bound to encounter.

So, from me to you, here’s a packet of observations from O’Hare International Airport, Schaumburg, and Chicago. [more]

Hello, everybody! Today on Disabled Travelers, a special blog post to let you know what your humble host is up to. Yes, I had expected to do a full-on news post this time around and there are still some things I’d like to share, but first a little tidbit from me to you: I’m traveling to Chicago this week, for the second time in about a month, and that means you can expect a sequel to one of our most popular posts. Let’s quickly review as I pack up … [more]

It’s good to have you back again at Disabled Travelers!

With our “best places to retire” series fading into the sunset, it’s time to get back in gear for our signature access guides around the world.

Our next destination is Portugal, Spain’s neighbor with a proud seafaring tradition and plenty of beautiful coastline.

There’s a reason this sunny country is one of the Top 20 most-visited destinations on Earth, and it’s about time for disabled travelers (and travel companions, of course) to take in the sights. [more]

Here at Disabled Travelers, we’ve saved some of the best for last as we coast to the end of our Best Places to Retire series. Today we’re looking at Panama, another great place where a thriving expat community enjoys some delightful perks. As always, though, we have to ask the burning question: what can disabled travelers and their travel companions expect from our latest destination? Let’s find out … [more]

Welcome back to Disabled Travelers!

As we approach the end of our CNBC-inspired access guide series on the best places to retire, we find ourselves on the coast of Mexico.

Mexico has gotten some bad press lately due to crime, mainly on the border. You should always keep travel advisories in mind!

But also remember that there are still many areas far removed from those troubles – such as Puerto Vallarta, still one of the most popular resort zones in Mexico and home to a thriving expat community. [more]

It’s a tradition we’ve had for a while and there’s always something new to report, whether it’s brand new disabled hotels or tips to help you and your travel companions on the next journey.

This month brings us from the desert to the tundra, so let’s get started! [more]

In today’s Disabled Travelers adventure, we’ll be hitting Languedoc-Roussillon, France, and Le Marche, Italy!

If these locales are new to you, fear not: they were pointed out to us by CNBC’s “Best Places to Retire Outside the U.S.” series, a trail that we’ve been following on the Disabled Travelers blog for the last few weeks.

As DT fans may already know, we’ve passed through both Italy and France on previous trips.

This time, though, we’re zooming in on two of the countries’ “best kept secrets.”

Grab your travel companions and let’s go! [more]
