The art of accessible travel is not impossible to master, but it requires a lot of caution, good planning skills and a pinch of patience. It’s definitely learnable – especially with the help of others! All of I know comes from my own personal experience, mainly travel mistakes. Nothing’s a better teacher than life itself, but when it comes to accessibility… it’s better to be safe than sorry and learn from somebody else’s mistakes! I am more than willing to share my knowledge about accessible traveling. After all, accessibility can either break or make your trip, but you can use it to your own advantage. What to avoid, what to remember about when you travel with a wheelchair? More about it below!

On the road, everything feels different. The air tastes like freedom, each cloud is a passing companion and an uncomfortable plane seat is suddenly a gateway to new universes. Traveling is a bug: once you catch it, it’ll stay in your system forever. I’m simply hooked on traveling and exploring the world, so I am beyond excited to tell you about my new trip a little bit ahead of time… In 3 days I’ll be sitting on the plane to Bangkok where my trip kicks off. From Bangkok, I’ll head to Hong Kong and Singapore, come back to Bangkok, fly to Dubai and finally back home – to Warsaw. I have only two weeks for the entire expedition.

Sometimes I fall in love with cities at first sight. Boom, the first time I set my eyes on the streets, I know they will take my breath away. Sometimes, though, I am not quite as amazed. Relaxed? Liking the place? Yes! Blown away? Not really. It’s natural to like some cities more than others, but discovering magic in something you’ve deemed “regular” feels absolutely amazing. Berlin’s vibe didn’t really capture my heart when I saw it years ago, but I was left surprised and impressed with this city, once I gave it one more chance. I attended IFA – Consumer Electronics Fair – this September and had a chance to explore Berlin again. It turned out that first impressions aren’t everything, after all! Below I’ll show you around Berlin I liked so much – vibrant and racing towards the future.

Berlin – vibrant, innovative, busy – is racing towards the future like a pro. The city doesn’t look back much but instead pushes forward, forward towards the tomorrow.
