Having had quite a lot of experience being a tour manager with groups of older adults I know how difficult it can be for folks with disabilities and mobility issues. It's hard enough to navigate airports, tour buses and tourist locations when you have all of your physical abilities in good working order. For the older person or any person with physical limitations it can be frustrating at the least and oftentimes just plain impossible. Recently I was perusing the AARP web site where I ran across an excellent article about resources for travel specifically targeted toward those with limited and/or assisted mobility. You can check some of them out here, and here, and here. There is even an organization, the Society for Accessible Travel and Hospitality, that has a wealth of information on all aspects of disability-friendly travel. Don't let mobility issues keep you from exploring this great wide world of ours, get out there and have a ball!
