Episode 8: Trouble in Brussels

We travel to Brussels, the capital of Europe, where, despite the beauty of its Old Town living up to its title, its overall accessibility doesn’t. We also discover The High Line Park, one of New York’s hidden gems and we get the dreaded air travel horror story.

  1. Another awesome episode! I really want to try out that park in New York!
    I often look up wheelchair repair at my destination, but also really like the idea of taking a small tool pouch as well!
