Time for accommodations
Traveling is an adventure, and if you plan ahead, your stress level can be significantly reduced. When booking a trip, don’t forget to inquire about accessibility accommodations you might need along the way. I find it easy to get wrapped up in the timing of flights, and locations of hotels and other pertinent destinations and sometimes forget that a sighted guide to my hotel room is a huge help. If you like tours, consider asking if the tour company has someone who can provide verbal descriptions of the locations you will be touring. Museums also offer opportunities for blind and low vision guests to touch many of the usually off-limits sculptures. When you book your next museum visit, inquire about accessibility accommodations for those with low or no vision. I find that if you call and the person answering doesn’t know, and later find out, they are more helpful to the next visually impaired guest that calls, kind of like paying it forward low vision style.
