This month, we're talking about disability representation within the travel media (or lack thereof)
Hello from a fellow stroke haver with multiple invisible disabilities who travels and has sometimes informally written about my disabled traveling experiences in a private Discord server. Looking forward to reading more! I am an American residing in Portugal, by the way! We're practically neighbors!
Really loved this piece. I’m a writer who’s had an invisible illness for the last 9 years (uveitis) and have just gotten into writing about the difficulties of traveling with an autoimmune condition in the past few months. Currently trying to navigate and embrace being home and resting to take care of health rather than traveling again, and listening to my body more. Thank you!
Thank you so much for taking on this topic! I've seen it put best this way: being able-bodied is temporary. Accident, illness, injury, or aging will impact us at some point.
