Imagine the world where pavements are always even, thresholds aren’t dangerously high and elevators don’t remember your grandparents’ youth. Sounds beautiful, right? That’s the world of accessibility, which I hope, is just a few years away. Right now, however, many travel destinations can be described in three I’s: incredible, interesting and… inaccessible.

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.
