a travel guide for all of us

OK, I know things have gotten better. I know some of you will share stories of travelling 20 or 30 years ago and how much worse it was (we welcome your stories!). But we still have a long way to go; airport ticket agents still call out which zone is boarding and get mad when I line up too soon because I can't hear what they've said, Jill still has people frustrated when it takes her 2 (or 4) tries to get her luggage in the overhead compartment, and sure you can find an accessible stall in the airport but try using the one on the plane.
This blog isn't to call anyone out, or shame them, and we don't want it to turn into a bitch session (but there may be some frustration). I still forget to slow down on the stairs for Jill and she forgets to speak louder (well, shout actually) in the car for me. We get it, if you're able-bodied you just don't know what the challenges are for other-able people. There are some things that may remain out of reach for some folks (I'm thinking of parts of Jerusalem that really aren't wheel chair accessible) but there are plenty of things that can be done to help all of us navigate the world of travel (hey airports, let's get those announcements on screens!) easier.
So this blog is one part nudge in the right direction and one part information for other folks like us who face challenges when travelling. We'll give you tips on particular cities, friendly places and ones that you might want to avoid. We also want to hear your stories because we represent a small portion of the the challenges people face. Let's get learning....
