Touring: Disabled Travel
Disabled travel can be difficult in many parts of the world, yet well provided for in others. Many parts of the developing world are hard to travel alone and a travel companion is advisory. Many pavements are not wheelchair worthy, in particular they are often poorly maintained, littered with holes, obstructed by scattered objects and wandering pedestrian masses. Staircases to monuments and a lack of access lifts serving them make many attractions difficult if not impossible to visit. Toilets, restaurants and even hotels are very rarely serviced by wheelchair ramps and so assistance would be a necessity. 

In the western world, facilities are much more geared towards disabled travellers. Hotels often have wheelchair access and lifts. Disabled toilets are more common and so are ramps into shops and restaurants. Public transport is also better in the west, with many trains for example having wheelchair ramp access. Pavements are also in a better state of repair than in the developing world and the navigation of these would be considerably easier.
