Disability is no obstacle to travel

February 01, 2009

I enjoyed Lora Crommett's Web piece on cruises for handicapped travelers, "Cruises Gaining in Popularity for Disabled Travelers," www.latimes.com/disabledtraveler [Jan. 20]. Although it notes that not all disabled travelers are as adventurous as William Floria, who uses a wheelchair, many of us are.

I am in South Africa for a month as the first visiting journalist with a disability sponsored by the KwaZulu-Natal province, to study the accessibility of their tourism product. Under government sponsorship, I bring together existing nongovernmental organizations from within the disabled community and the national tourism industry to build the inclusive tourism market.

It is always of benefit to our community when you run articles on our travel behavior.
