The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh is known as one of the finest botanic gardens in the world and after visiting with my family this past weekend, it’s very clear why. It also made for a great accessible day out to enjoy the last days of summer. Made even better by the beautiful September sunshine we experienced for our day in the Capital.

Everyone loves a day out whether it’s a trip to a nature park, a walk through the woods or to a museum in the city. For most people, this is a simple thing to do that doesn’t involve much planning other than looking into the cost and location. However, there is much more planning involved to ensure you have an enjoyable day out if you have a disability. [Read more…] about How to plan an accessible day out
If you had asked me a few years ago if I’d ever try extreme sports, I would have thought you’d lost your mind. How on earth could I try extreme sports as a wheelchair user with weak muscles, poor trunk control, unable to walk, unable to lift my arm to scratch my nose and the list goes on… Well, last week I discovered that it is possible to try accessible extreme sports with the help of Disability Snowsport UK.

Are you planning a trip to Paris soon? Are you looking to do something a little different during your time in the City of Light?

Even though I’m through in Glasgow quite often, The Riverside Museum has never been on my list of things to do in the city. Well, that was true until last week when we decided to go to Glasgow for the day with our Nephew. We were looking for something that would keep an energetic two year old happy, wouldn’t cost too much and was wheelchair accessible. The Riverside Museum seemed to be a good option and we weren’t disappointed. [Read more…] about A ‘Wheelie’ Accessible Visit To The Riverside Museum
This past weekend I enjoyed a nice day at the Glasgow Botanic Gardens with my boyfriend, Sister and Nephew. We had originally planned to go shopping and then go for some dinner, but decided once we got to Glasgow to pop into the Botanic Gardens before hitting the shops. My nephew loves to run around so we thought it would be a good place to take him. He loved watching the fish and wandering around inside the gardens and also splashing about in a puddle or two.
We plan on going back again in the summer and spending a little more time in the gardens outside when it isn’t cold. It will be lovely when all the flowers have blossomed outside and our nephew can run about even more. [Read more…] about Glasgow Botanic Gardens
