How am I changing my little chunk of the world? I’m exploring accessible places to dine one restaurant at a time. I share my finds on Instagram. Heres why we need this.
It can be challenging not being able to get to the loo. Last night I was at a restaurant. Apparently accessible. I went to go to the toilet only to find there were stairs. Oh hell I’m busting!
I asked the restaurant about accessible toilets. “Oh just go across the road”, they say.
My eyes roll. People just don’t join the dots. One persons ‘just across the road’ is a disabled persons ‘go down the block til you can cross at the lights. After you have crossed come back up the other side the road til you are opposite the restaurant.
Still busting to go! On my mobility scooter I make the journey.
So how am I changing my little chunk of the world? I’m exploring accessible places one restaurant at a time. Some people with mobility issues can’t walk. Others can’t walk up and down stairs. Even walking a short distance is really scary and time consuming. Let alone with a full bladder.
Here is an Instagram account I set up a few years ago. A work in progress.
Well thats it for me. It’s the disabled foodie signing off for now.
