Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and time of year. I love Autumn and the cooler weather, wearing sweaters, sitting in front of the fire and sipping a hot cup of tea.

I also love that Thanksgiving is a day when we stop and think about all we are thankful for.

I am so thankful to have all of you in my life. You give me purpose and the opportunity to be productive. Many of us have traveled together, explored the world together and laughed together. For that I am so grateful. I consider you more than clients, you are my friends. For that I am blessed. I wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with family, friends and fabulous food!
Where We've Been...
October was a very busy month for Easy Access Travel. It began with a trip to San Antonio for the American Express Retail Travel Network Forum. These are always exceptional events filled with opportunities for learning and meeting one on one with vendors. I try to impart on them the importance of making their properties accessible to all and let them know that if they do, we will come. They had great evening parties and inspiring keynote speakers including Astronaut Scott Kelly who spent a year in the Space Station with two Russian Cosmonauts.

Then it was off to Moon Palace Grand in Cancun for the annual Cruise Planners Convention. Always my favorite event as I love being with my Cruise Planners Family. Another opportunity for learning and hearing where the industry is headed. Lots of new cruise ships coming our way in the near future!
The month ended with the San Mateo Abilities Expo where we saw many of our clients and made lots of new friends.
  • Next stop...Washington DC Metro, Dec. 1,2,3, Dulles Expo Center. Come visit us in Booth 816. Bring your travel questions or just stop by and say Hello!

Need a Scooter?
Do you need to rent a scooter or other mobility equipment for your next cruise or land trip? Be sure and let us know and we can make arrangements for you through Special Needs Group. Standard and heavy duty scooters, wheelchairs, hospital beds, hoyer lifts, lift chairs, oxygen and more are all possibilities for you when you travel.
Holiday Travel Tips
Holidays should be joyous but holiday travel can add undue stress and anxiety. Reduce these unpleasant side effects by being pro-active. Be sure to arrive early for your flight. Be prepared for extra long security lines. If you are traveling with medical equipment including wheelchairs, scooters, prosthetics, braces, crutches, etc., expect inspection of you and these devices to take longer than usual. Be cooperative, self identify your situation and understand that the main purpose is to get all of us to our destination safely. For those of us with lower limb prosthetics or braces, be sure to wear loose fitting pants that allow a quick visual inspection.
