Welcome to Blind Travels, a disabled traveler resource written by and for those who are visually impaired and love to travel. I review hotels, travel providers and vacation destinations as someone who is almost completely blind and navigating a world created for those who are fully sighted. I love technology, especially technology that makes traveling visually impaired more convenient, and you can always find the latest news on blind and VI tech in my blog section here on Blind Travels.
The car accident that robbed me of almost all my vision left me embarrassed about my lack of sight and afraid to ask for help. I found online resources tailored to the needs of blind or visually impaired travelers lacking, so I created this site with the hope that my experiences can be a compendium of useful information for those with low vision, and the friends and family who support them.
If you are not visually impaired, but looking for information about ways to interact with or support the blind or visually impaired, check out the education section where you find articles on everything from the proper way to interact with blind and low vision individuals, to ways you can make your social media posts more accessible to the visually impaired.
You will find no paywalls or restricted content on this site. I created this project to help others with limited vision travel the world with confidence and knowledge. All the photos here are mine – taken by me. I am often asked if I sell my photography – I do not, rather I only donate limited edition prints to charities that make a positive difference in other’s lives such as Guide Dogs for the Blind https://www.guidedogs.com/ Keep and eye on the blog section, I often post about upcoming exhibitions of my work or auctions where you can bid on prints.
