Wheelchair Around the World
Patrick and Anne Simpson had a not so uncommon dream to travel the world upon their retirement. A major obstacle had to be crossed before this dream could become a reality. Anne, debilitated by a rare joint disease, would be confined to a wheelchair for much of their eight-month journey. Wheelchair Around the World is their heartwarming and inspiring account of a couple living out their dream.
Much more than just another travelogue, Patrick and Anne have paved the way for other physically challenged travelers. This book undoubtedly will entertain armchair and wheelchair travelers alike, who will get a sense of these faraway places through Simpson's firsthand accounts. The book also includes several appendixes and an extensive bibliography, intended to help other physically challenged travelers plan their own trips, with foreknowledge of wheelchair accessible facilities, hotels, and transportation.
