So quick story time! I often felt lonely in my journey and like actual journey when I am traveling thinking that I am carving a way that it is not there. I wondered if I can just call someone or an organization to ask about accessibility or to do bidding on my behalf to make something more accessible for me. Well turns out organizations like these exist and I want to play a role in bringing them to the surface and inspire others to follow especially from my own country, Pakistan.
I came across @wheeltheworld on Instagram and realized these guys are doing what has been my fantasy for a long time which is providing accessible tourism services such as accessible accommodation and activities in 80+ countries. But that is not it. Businesses like Wheel the world having an inclusive team not just provides services but also becomes a conversation starter within the Tourism industry to inspire properties and experiences to become too accessible. This leads to a world that is more accessible and inclusive and trust me everyone wants to use the wheelchair accessible bathroom :p
So I have collaborated with https://gowheeltheworld.com/ to bring forth a special project that we will reveal soon! But you are all welcome to have a look at the BTS of the initiative from Project New York.
We also support the following businesses who are featured in this project so do check them out and give them love when you are in New York, USA.
@turnstiletours @polishcuisine @newyorkbirria @kwikmealnyc @indiantastyhalalfood @wafelsanddinges @streetvendorproject @momotestkitchen @momodressing @adaptability.bike @circlelinenyc @turnstiletours @nycferry @brooklynarmyterminal
We are all in this together regardless of our abilities and together we can ensure inclusion and accessibility on all levels.
