How can a wheelchair-bound college student travel Asia with her American friend? Ideas?

1 Comment 25 November 2011

Question by yilingonly: How can a wheelchair-bound college student travel Asia with her American friend? Ideas?
Hi! I am a 20-year-old from Asia who has not known the limitlessness of life until I met Tif, an outdoor American girl who brought me on bike rides and donkey rides. I have never travelled without my parents but would like to do so within the next year. Any suggestions?

Several issues include: wheelchair accessibility, accessible bathroom, backpacking tools, light-weight mobility equipments, options for transportation, cost? We have considered Japan, Thailand, Vietnam, China, and the Philippines… but we don’t know if it is too difficult for us.

Also, what can we do to get sponsors and people to help? We’re thinking of putting together an inspirational program and both of us can speak to inspire the local people. Please suggest!!!

Wheelchair Activity Ideas

Posted: Jan 22, 2010 |Comments: 0

Are you in a wheelchair, or do you know someone who is? If the answer is yes, you may be able to name countless activities they like to participate in, often just as well as you and me. Although many able bodied people and those new to life in a chair may not even realize it, there are countless activity options available for those in a wheelchair. Here is a list of some fun activities for those in a wheelchair:

Sports: Dont just assume that because someone is in a wheelchair they cant play sports. In fact, many people in wheelchairs still use sports as an outlet. For example, many wheelchair users love to play basketball, pool, bowling, swim & lift weights.

Videogames: Video games are a great outlet for those in a wheelchair. Especially for those who are unable or unwilling to play sports, video games can give wheelchair users a chance to scratch their competitive itch. Specifically, the Nintendo Wii is excellent!

Camping: Everybody loves the outdoors, and wheelchair users are no exception. Most campsites have wheelchair accessible spots just make sure you call ahead. Possible fun activities include fishing, hiking (if there are accessible trails) and swimming.

Art: Wheelchair users have a unique vantage point of the world, and it can often lead to great photography. Likewise, many people in wheelchairs are forced to adapt their other senses, and many develop unique artistic talents in the areas of painting, drawing and music.

Traveling: If you took a poll of wheelchair users, a majority would likely mention traveling as their favorite activity. Depending on where you are traveling, make sure you plan ahead and do research on possible wheelchair traveling locations.
