Yes, I was clearly inspired by Drizzy Drake for the title of this post, but I think it’s apt! When it comes to going on holiday and deciding what to do while I am there, I like to push myself as hard as I possibly can. Usually starting from the morning and not going back […]

Aren’t you scared?

Posted by Jay in Travel on May 31st, 2015

I’ve been absolutely terrified every moment of my life – and I’ve never let it keep me from doing a single thing I wanted to do. – Georgia O’Keefe The picture above is from many years ago when I went on a camping trip with school. And insisted that I also join in climbing up […]

Lopsided Glory

Posted by Jay in Travel on May 14th, 2015

As I had recently posted onto my Facebook page, I had gone to the doctors to get some new callipers and new boots as mine had been through the wars with my constant travelling and moving around. Thankfully this time I was able to go to a hospital in the city, instead of having to […]

Posted by Jay in Travel on April 19th, 2015

  No, not that C word, or the other C word. I am talking about ‘cripple’. This is a rarely used term nowadays because it is used as a pejorative term about those who have a physical disability, especially those who are unable to walk or have difficulty walking. The term I grew up hearing […]

Posted by Jay in Travel on August 11th, 2014

Travelling while crip is already hard enough without having to worry about getting attacked, mugged or ending up on the news for all the wrong reasons. Having travelled by myself for a lot of my trips, I have had my fair share of creeps, weirdos and marriage proposals. But I have thankfully been able to […]

Good Attitude

Posted by Jay in Travel on August 8th, 2014

A few days ago while at work,  I was asked by some ladies how I managed to maintain my positive attitude and love for myself. This was spurred on by the fact that I had said how great I think I am, and fabulous I thought I looked. Now this may sound conceited, probably because […]
