Happy Spring to all of you! I know many of you are looking out the window right now and cannot believe that spring is here but it is. The snow will melt, the flood waters will recede and the brutal winter of 2019 will fade into a faint memory. While you are waiting for that to happen, think warm sunny thoughts. Dream of a Caribbean or Hawaiian cruise or a trip to South Africa. We can make these dreams come true. Just give us a call and sign up for one of these amazing trips in 2019 and 2020. Limited space available on all of these incredible trips.

Accessible Seas 2020 is an Eastern Caribbean Cruise visiting the ports of St. Maarten, San Juan and Coco Cay where you will have a Perfect Day! Cruise on RCCL's newest ship, Symphony of The Seas and enjoy all she has to offer. Information is on our website under Group Trips. More than half of our allocated cabins are already spoken for so call now to claim your cabin.
Our 2019 European Adventure, June 14 - 26, on Celebrity Reflection from Dublin to Amsterdam is SOLD OUT.
We are in the process of doing final payments and all shore excursions have been planned and signed up for. I am so excited about this trip. It promises to be amazing and we have 34 amazing people traveling with us!
Our friends in the Ataxia Support Group in Western Washington State are doing an Alaska Cruise on RCCL's Ovation of The Seas August 23, 2019. This cruise is NOW OPEN TO ALL with mobility challenges and we welcome your participation. I will be escorting the group so it's perfect for those new to cruising. Alaska always sells out and is the number one cruise destination for accessibility. We can only retain our accessible cabin inventory for a short time so don't miss the boat, the train in Skagway or the whales in Juneau! Call NOW!

Hawaiian Island Cruise is being offered once again on NCL Pride of America. Sailing round-trip Honolulu October 26 - November 2, 2019. Details are now on our web site. We have very limited availability. We will offer three nights pre-cruise stay in Honolulu. Come experience the Aloha Spirit with us.
Synagogue in Israel
Details for the 2020 Israel Trip will be available in the April Newsletter. Our visit will be multi-cultural but will lean more towards Jewish Heritage. Please let me know if you are interested. I will send out an email blast as soon as trip is organized and I have pricing. We will only have seven fully accessible hotel rooms so that gives us space for 14 participants plus me and Steve.
Depart USA October 11 and return October 26, 2019

Please visit our website and click on Group Trips for itinerary and pricing.

Please note that we have only 4 accessible rooms still available. Only 12 lucky travelers will get the opportunity to be on this trip! Our preference is that everyone travel with a companion but no longer required.
We also request that everyone travel with your own mobility equipment as we will not be renting equipment. (we may assist you with rentals on a case by case situation).

We are looking into other trip possibilities for 2020 and welcome your suggestions. The deciding factors for group trips are the availability of accessible accommodations and transportation.

Just Returned...Los Angeles Abilities Expo
The recent Los Angeles Abilities Expo was absolutely amazing! They had record crowds and we could barely catch our breathe. In fact, by Sunday I had lost my voice so doing my workshop on Traveling With Special Needs was a real challenge. Just another situation where I had to "do it differently"! My niece, Rachel, joined me in LA to help out and she was wonderful. We met so many fantastic people and connected with previous visitors and clients. It is always such a very special time. We also met lots of vendors with new and exciting products. See below to read about our favorite product!
Airtime Watertime Flotation Wetsuit
Airtime Watertime®  is a wetsuit company devoted to inspiring human potential. Our mission is to provide people with new ways to enjoy the water, to improve our oceans, and save the environment. 
Their purpose is to produce the highest quality products through trust, integrity, and mutual respect to support water enthusiasts and our planet for generations to come.
Airtime Watertime®  has designed the Floater™, a flotation wetsuit, to offer a totally new level of security, confidence, and freedom to all who wish to enjoy the water.

When I saw this product at the LA Abilites Expo, I was immediately impressed and thought of many of my clients who want to enjoy the water but, due to their various disabilities, are afraid to participate. I knew this was the answer and the way to get them all in the pool and/or ocean without fear. A wetsuit with a built in flotation device; how cool is that?! As a bilateral amputee, the ocean waves present a problem with balance. I can't wait to try out this wetsuit next time I'm in the Caribbean or Hawaii.

Read all about this great wetsuit and watch youtube videos here ...
New Zealand, Here We Come!!!
After more than 18 months of planning, our land trip to New Zealand is only a few days away. Our group will depart the US on March 28 and meet up in Auckland on March 30. We will travel by accessible motor coach through the North and South Islands of this picturesque country. We head back home on April 16. Please know that I will have email access during most of this trip. Everyone is very excited and I look forward to sharing our adventure with all of you in the April Newsletter.
Need a Scooter?
We can help!
Do you need to rent a scooter or other mobility equipment for your next cruise or land trip?
