When I think of vacation homes immediately the movie The Holiday with Cameron Diaz comes to mind. The movie talks about the premise of my post.

The thought of travel brings me stress not for reasons you may think. My friend and I recently started planning a trip to the west coast; it came to a halt when we realized that using taxis were basically out of the question: because they only hold one wheelchair per vehicle which would imply double the cab fare which was when we realized it wasn’t an option at least now.

This got me thinking for other ideas for vacationing that I could look into for future things that my friends and I could do without dealing with the multiple cab issue.The majority of my friends that I would want to travel with are in chairs so if anyone has an idea to get around this one cab two plus chairs thing let me know. Thus the vacation home idea came to form. Initially I thought this concept was strictly something from the movies but after a little research, I was pleasantly surprised.

A website I became aware of was intriguing and thus became the focal point of this post I want to make people aware that this was out there for them.

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.

    Hi, I have a service dog his a Labradoodle his name is Rainbow. I have Epilepsy, Asthma, Hard of hearing, Moblity problem and other health problems.
    Did you every look online at self-training your own service dog. If you don’t want to do that just go online and put down service dog training schools. Also go online to Pup’parel.com for Service dog vest and service dog patches. Also look up (ADA) Laws online. Also read all the books you can on service dogs. and make sure you feed dry dog food with out corn in it. Good Luck, hope to here from you soon!
