It’s about time tour operators, hoteliers and businesses throughout the world woke up to that fact that people with disabilities can and do travel. We are currently in a four star plus hotel in Portugal (ok I know it’s popular with golfers, but they have wives, I’m one of those wives). We arrived yesterday. I don’t know how many hundred rooms there are, but none have an adapted bathroom, not even partially adapted. There is no accessible toilet in any of the public areas. Most of the shops, cafes have steps into them, I can’t even get into the supermarket!
The first challenge today was to try to get showered. The shower is over a deep bath, there are no rails, not that I can lift my legs over anyway. Getting up and down off the low loo is forming part of my daily exercise routine!
What’s more it’s not even sunny!
Rant over for now. There may be more to follow!
