Join Brooke and Elena as they talk about Brooke’s journey from her home in Canada to Tuscany Italy for an extended stay as Brooke and her husband undergo an accessible renovation back home. Jet lagged and recovering from a cold (please excuse her raspy voice!), Brooke explains how everything went wrong during their 16 hour travel to Italy, and how she’s handling the unexpected stress after. You may learn a thing or two of what to expect on a long haul journey while travelling with a quadriplegic, and, what NOT to do yourself so you can enjoy an easier travel experience. Regardless of how you feel about travel after an SCI, travel is IMPORTANT, and everyone should experience it after injury. This episode is not meant to discourage anyone, it was made to highlight the reality of certain travel situations we all face when experiencing new places. Hopefully, this actually encourages everyone to take their own journey, and be prepared and accepting of headaches and issues arising as they inevidibly WILL.
