My 10,000 day journey

I recently reached a milestone in my life earlier this year, I have now been in my wheelchair longer than I have walked, and as such have reached more than 10,000 days.

Temperature Regulation

A question I often get asked is, why do you wear so many jumpers? Especially in the colder months. Spinal cord injuries come with many side effects; one side effect includes the inability to regulate one’s temperature.

Sitting on a plane

As you may have noticed by now, I love travelling and have been fortunate enough to travel on over 50 flights since my accident – and counting! Along the way I have learnt some handy tips and tricks both first-hand and from fellow travellers which I am going to share in this post. Although air travel is a bit more complicated in a chair, domestic and international travel is easily managed with some prior preparation and an open imagination.

New York, New York

New York: The Big Apple and the city that never sleeps are two of the most popular names for one of the most famous cities in the world! To be honest New York was never really on my travel bucket list, but when things are meant to be, life points you in the right direction and this ranks as one of the best holidays I have ever had! After having a discussion with my travel buddy, within four days we were booked on our trip to New York – talk about quick decision making!
