Whatever means of transport that you choose for your travels around the world, there's always the chance of something going wrong — some sort of disruption that throws your carefully planned journey into chaos. When something is beyond your control — whether it’s bad weather, mechanical failures, industrial disputes, or some other unforeseen development — there really is no other option but to take deep breaths and try not to let it stress you out.
Hello again folks, welcome back to the series on traveling when you're blind. In my last post I talked about how we, as blind people, need to do things differently, and provided an example on how this is done.
An easy day-trip from London, Cambridge is an incredibly attractive part of the world.
The Indonesian island of Bali is a favourite destination for Australian holiday-makers, and it’s easy to see why.
Hello, everyone, I'm Jared Rimer. I've been blind since I was born. I know a lot of people are sighted out there, and they have no idea how we travel, and do other things in life. Picture yourself losing your sight, and you've been traveling and doing daily tasks your whole life.
It was 2003 when I moved to London, just a few months after my 30th birthday.
Whether you are experiencing Oslo in its shimmering summer, or the winter wonderland of the country’s north — Norway offers something for everyone.
Constructed over an archipelago of 14 islands and connected together by 57 bridges, Stockholm — the capital of Sweden — is a city with a unique sense of style and purpose.
Most people love to talk about their glamorous travels abroad. They may talk about hiking in the Alps, going on a cruise in the Bahamas, or even just jetsetting off to Tokyo. But, most of the time, you don't really hear people bragging about train rides.
If you're in London and looking to get to the sea on a sunny day, one of the best and easiest options is to jump on the train to Brighton.
Did you know French (mostly Parisian) people call Paris Paname, when they are talking about it as an exotic place? Well, Paris is an exotic place, especially if you've never been there, you probably romanticize it (or not). And in reality it has so much history and hidden gems that it is a treasury that has no end; it keeps going on and on. And if you are going to Paris, thinking about going to Paris or dreaming about going to Paris someday, I would love you to see it the way I do, because Paris is more than only the Eiffel Tower and The Arc de Triomphe (although these are nice places too).
No, this is not a remake of a Bing Crosby and Bob Hope movie. You know, those road trip movies of the 1940's. Although they were quite funny. When we think of Timbuktu it conjures up images of such a far away remote place, so isolated very few really know where it is. To even reach Timbuktu is a remarkable trek to one of the world's most fascinating places. A rich history of scholars and scribes. Timbuktu was once the meca that supported a flourishing industry of scribes who copied texts brought by traders, merchants, and other scholars.
