"Fun going on holiday, isn't it?" writes Mike Woodmansey of Cornwall, England. "You spend months choosing where to go, carefully checking that every disability facility is available —and when you get there (assuming the airline hasn't lost your wheelchair in transit), you find half a dozen steps up to the front door, the lift is the size of an old-fashioned dumbwaiter, and —if you ever get to your room —your wheelchair won't fit through the en suite bathroom door, despite the fact that the staff personally checked it for you when you made your reservation." In her August 2002 PN/Paraplegia News Travel Tips column, Access-Able Travel Source's Carol Randall describes an information-exchange network, a database, and a Web site that can help travelers know exactly what to expect, wherever their destination might be. This month's column also offers information about planning a trip to Thailand, a new B&B in southwestern Mexico, and a unique transfer chair that has won recognition for Delta Air Lines. There's also a description by traveler Frank Caceres of his adventures on a trip to Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
