Money may not buy happiness, but it can certainly get you a plane ticket or two and that’s close enough. If I had infinite resources, I would probably be on the road most of the time. This is the reason why I love budget travel – it allows me to travel more… without ruining my finances completely! Mastering the art of accessible travel is not easy itself, but budget travel in a wheelchair poses even more challenges.

If Disney fairytales were to become true, most of them would be set in Monaco, where dreams come true, and luxury fills the air like perfume. Monaco turned out to be everything I couldn’t find in Dubai: a picturesque harbor of leisure,  5-star authenticity and out-of-this-world cars.
