Pick your journeys pick your times.

At physio last week, I announced my intention to travel up north.

There were mixed reactions, especially from those used to car travel.

But travel and music broaden the mind. And the weather was nice.

Well done Steve, there’s no stopping you. I rarely venture to Manchester. I find it very busy and I don’t think the pavements are great for wheelchair users. Last year I went to see Harry Styles with Isabelle and Frazer and after leaving the concert we got dreadfully lost . Everything looks different in the dark and it was pouring down too. I was put off because some parts seemed very scruffy and as if time had forgotten the place . We found our budget hotel in the end but we were all very wet . Do you book travel assistance? I book it for any far away places . It’s brilliant because they look after you last time our train broke down we got a taxi paid for by the travel assistance. Also any inaccessible stations like Hyde Central where my mum lives are sorted out and an alternate transport given . I had a taxi provided from Hyde to Piccadilly on returning from my mum’s. I hope you are doing okay with your treatment Steve. Keep up the adventures. Michelle and Frazer xx

Hi Steve I am glad you enjoyed your trip. I do hope that your treatment goes well so that you can start planning more journeys. I so admire your courage please keep on blogging as you are an inspiration. At the moment I am not even brave enough to admit that I need a wheelchair! Sue
