Sargood

Sargood on Collaroy, located in New South Wales, Australia is a purpose-built luxury resort for people with a spinal cord injury and their families. Located in Sydney’s Northern beaches overlooking Collaroy Beach, I was completely blown away when first arriving at this amazing resort, from the fantastic staff members, world-class facilities to the huge self-contained units, this place was nothing short of truly amazing.

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.
