Interpreting your disability as an inability comes within you and it is you alone who can change things around for the better. Your perception of what you can or cannot do will change your whole outlook to life which I admit is more challenging than the average.
Apart from your attitude that will ensure if you see the glass half full or half empty, there are some challenges that you are likely to encounter during a holiday or even while traveling in general. Adaptive hotel rooms, airport transfers, wheelchair access vehicles, adapted toilets in public restrooms and accessible restaurants and bars are few of the many ways commuting can be made more tolerable for you but the million-dollar question is: how many holiday destinations are equipped with the above facilities?
When life gives you lemons you make lemonade, you try at least, don’t you? Similarly, you need to work around the prorated number of limbs, fate has bestowed upon you. While some may view this as taking the plight of the impaired people lightly, the intention is to instill in you that feeling sorry for oneself is not going to do you any good,
On that note, here are some inclusive travel destinations we dug up for you.

The birthplace of the great Shakespeare himself. This textbook English town is wheelchair friendly, allowing you to independently maneuver your way through the town’s sidewalks.
