Outside of Clober Farm

My Stay At Clober Farm In Glasgow

Last week I attended the Independent Living Scotland exhibition at the SEC, Glasgow. I used to go with my parents when I was younger, but for the last couple of years I have been going to help Euan’s Guide on their stall to spread more awareness of the great work they do. There are many…

Outside of the V&A Dundee

First Visit to V&A Dundee

On Saturday 15th September the day finally arrived for the highly anticipated V&A Dundee to open its doors for the first 10,000 visitors to see some of Scotland’s top artefacts in design and culture. I felt honoured and privileged to get a sneak peek not only once but twice. My first visit was with some…

No Train For Me

I know the title to this blog post is a big spoiler, but please bear with me. On the weekend of 16th June, my friend and I decided to take a trip through to Aberdeen for a bit of shopping in Union Square. I really like to visit Union Square and travel by train because…

Travel Life part 2

A few months ago, I wrote a short post Travel Life part 1 about the accessibility of Holiday Inn’s rooms and the great service I always receive when I use the train. I said I would write a follow up post on other countries I have visited especially last year as I went on a…

The Dome Christmas Tree

Improvisation Is Key

Well that wasn’t the weekend I was expecting. When we first arrived at the Holiday Inn we were surprised to see the carer room wasn’t what we booked. There was a double bed and a sofa bed when we booked a twin room. Then I figured out that my hoist wouldn’t fit under the bed,…

Checklist

Travel Life part 1

This is just a quick post for me to share some information on planning trips away for people with a physical impairment and the places that I feel are suitable for wheelchairs. Going away on holiday or even a couple of nights away can take a while to organise for me. Sometimes I have to…
