Under the Eiffel Tower, the world stops for a second. I’d wanted to see Paris for as long as I can remember and once I was there with my electric wheelchair, just in front of the Eiffel Tower, it hit me: I made it to Paris. Cliché? Maybe. A wonderful travel destination? Most definitely! The French capital has been an iconic city for years, and there are definitely good reasons behind it. After all, as the month’s pass, nothing changes under the Eiffel Tower: people come and go, but there’s always somebody admiring the view and whispering “Oh My Paris!”. That’s kind of magic I wanted to experience on my own skin. Wandering around the city and soaking up the atmosphere I found beauty all around me. On crowded streets and in small cafés – Parisian charm would never fade away. I may not be an expert on Paris, but I would love to take you on a tour… straight to Paris I loved so much! What to do, what to see and how accessible the City of Lights actually is for manual and electric wheelchairs? More about it below!

If we put Poland under the microscope, we would certainly see a diverse country filled with interesting places and Tri-City is one of them. Tri-City – in other words, a group of closely-tied cities – is composed of Gdańsk, Gdynia, and Sopot. These are cities located in the northern Poland, just by the Bay of Gdańsk and throughout the years I’ve been a frequent visitor there. Sometimes I visit because due to business matters, sometimes because of my personal desires. Either way, I’ve become familiar with Tri-City and I keep coming back for years. High prices and crowded streets should be enough to keep me away, but there’s something charming about the place that I can’t ignore. Considering a visit? Great! Below I’ll be talking more about places to visit, things to do and general accessibility of Tri-City!

Transport in the Blumil style is easier than many people would think. Since Blumil’s light and small, it is a perfect electric wheelchair for public transport. Subway? Checked. Motorboat? Checked. Train? Checked. Airplane? Checked. Finally… the car – checked. Everyday commuting can become faster and less stressful if one has a Blumil wheelchair and that’s something I can vouch for. I am a great believer that to live is to experience freedom and Blumil’s a material proof of my philosophy. Why? Mainly because it was created to defy the limits. How does transport look like in the Blumil style? How can Blumil itself be transported and what’s the lift to freedom? More about it below!

Adventure of a lifetime and South Africa go together very well, just like peas and carrots, or me and my Blumil elctric wheelchair :). The story of my South African escapade told in part I has barely covered half of what I would like to tell you about this wonderful country. Cape Town, as breathtaking and fascinating as it is, is just a part of the beautiful mosaic of RSA. Garden Route, filled with many wonders in just under 300 thousand kilometers, is the focus of part II. You must know that my trip was divided into two parts: one week of intense road exploration and one week of relaxing in Cape Town. This post’s covering the road trip, and what a road trip it was! Below you can find out all about South Africa’s must-dos, must-sees, and accessibility!
