Getting to the gate
If you have some vision, like I do – make sure to bring a magnifying implement so you can read your boarding pass. I always travel with a hand-held magnifier, but I have also used and love the Mag Glass app for my iPhone. I am not as familiar with the magnifying programs available for Android, but I am sure there are plenty. I do always make sure to have the hand-held magnifier with me in case I can’t use my phone or if the battery is dead.
I always have my earbuds with me as well, and I often record a voice memo on my phone so I can remember the gate. The more options you have to resolve a potential problem, the smoother things will go. As a final backup, I generally carry a sharpie with me, and write the gate number on the boarding pass so I ca easily see it after I have inevitably forgotten the number.
Remember, don’t let your lack of vision hold you back! Take a trip somewhere you have never been – make it an adventure! Drop me an email and let me know how your trip went, I love to hear from my readers!
