Right now I feel like a child on the night before Christmas – only one more sleep and then Craig and I will be jetting off to Poland on holiday for 2 weeks!
I’m aware that statement probably raises a few questions:
• What does travel offer a blind person?
• And why Poland?
The answer to the second question is very simple: we have extended family who live outside Krakow in Poland
The answer to the first question is a little harder to put into words: It is true that I don’t have the same experience that Craig does when we travel. Sightseeing is a totally different experience without sight. However I am able to gain a remarkably complete experience of new places by using my other senses. I have devoted an entire chapter of my book, A Different Way of Seeing, to how I indulge my love of travel and how I gain the greatest amount possible from it, but you’ll still have to wait a few months before you can read that – but please feel free to ask by commenting on this article if you want to know more about how I travel.
I’m not going to post articles while I’m away but will let you know how I experienced Poland as a blind tourist when I get back… and share some of my photos as well.
Stay well while I am away and I’ll speak to you again soon…
