The World First Wander â the Internetâs best travel blogs
Welcome to another World First Wander.
As usual we have found a few interesting travel blogs for you to peruse this week. In fact, we have found a couple of new ones, starting with The Bimblers a blog from Bridget and Rob, a couple who arenât your average travel blogging couple. Why? Because they do it in a wheelchair. Â Their blog is a great inspiration and their outlook is fantastic. After Bridget became ill with severe rheumatoid arthritis Rob had to give up work to become her full time carer. However, that hasnât stopped them from getting out there and they began The Bimblers as a way of staying positive. Â Hats off to them!
I often ask Twitter (find me withÂ @WFTristan ) for recommendations of new blogs and this recoomendation came from that route. I am so glad I found them!Â They offer us a refreshing perspective on the world while also taking a pragmatic look at accessible travel. So please enjoy this first post from them, a guide to Walking Liverpoolâs Waterfront.
I was also lucky to find another great article this week from Disability Sanctuary a website devoted to the disabled, their carers and the people offering services to the disabled. They offer lots of sound advice as well as a meeting point for people with disabilities. I found this really interesting post about winter sports and disabilities. Itâs a guide to winter sports for wheelchair users.
Check out Donât let your disability stop you skiing during winter. Itâs a good read.
As insurers specialising in medical travel insurance we often speak to people with disabilities looking for travel policies, so I hope that Disability Sanctuaryâs list of Disabled Travel Resources may be helpful to some of you.
Our next blog reintroduces us to a blogger who first appeared here in October of last year. Itâs Â Scottish Emma, a well travelled twenty something with a degree in English literature. In view of that itâs fitting that we should look to Emma to tell us about her Â Top Novels to Read on Holiday. I love to read and always have a book on the go. But if you are one of those who only reads by the pool on holiday, take note of this post and start planning your next holiday reading list.
If you are among those who donât like to fly then you will certainly need a good book if you intend to go far on your travels. It may take longer but itâs no less rewarding â not to say glamorous – to travel on terra firma, as our next blogger, Johanna Payton proves. Her blog Feet on the ground is perfect for those who want to see the world but hate to fly. You are not alone!
We have featured a lot of posts from our next travel writer over the past few months. The Travel Hack is one of my favourite travel blogs. I see many parallels between our lives as both Monica and my fiancĂ© are heavily pregnant. So I was particularly interested to read this latest post about Monicaâs plans for 5 baby friendly holidays for babyâs first trip. It all sounds gloriousâŠ.
That just about wraps up this weekâs World First Wander. As always let us know if you write a travel blog as we may be able to feature it here.
