December is now upon us, and it’s time to take another trip to our second favorite country… The Philippines!.
In keeping with the spirit of this Blog, which is focused primarily on accessibility for those with mobility problems or challenges. (Primarily those with wheelchairs, walkers and/or canes). We will be stopping in to check out many businesses, hotels, restaurants in the Philippines!
We will also be reporting on public transportation as we travel by air, land or sea.
We plan to travel to at least six islands to check for locations that travelers to the Philippines who happen to have disabilities can access and enjoy.
We will begin posting the results in January. I am sure many locations will be shocked when we appear to ask about handicapped access to their facility. I am also sure that some locations will even be outraged when we bring up the issue of disability access. If so, we will also report that here as well.
Not only will we be posting our findings, but we will also make those places who are not handicapped-disabled friendly, aware of the need, especially now that all the baby-boomer seniors comprise such a huge financial-vacation market. In addition, with so many having diabetes and other disabling issues, it is time for those locations who seek to draw tourism to their shores to take notice and prepare for us!
Of course, don’t forget to check out our very informative, educational and concise website at:
We will be updating the website in January and February. as well as posting numerous photos and videos.
HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS & A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

FEEDBACK: As always, your comments, questions and/or suggestions are invited and greatly appreciated! Also, Should you have a “Philippine Based or Related” story you would like covered, please feel free to contact us! (Priority will be gioven to disability-related stories.). We are also interested in great Pilipino foods! If you have a favorite Carenderia or restaurant you think makes the greatest dish, let us know about it and what makes the food so great!
We are also always searching for host families in the Philippines, for our reporters/verifiers to stay (usually just 2 or 3 days) , this allows us to save money, help host families, and be neutral in reporting since it saves us from having any fiduciary interest or link to the location/s we are reporting.. Dont worry about the size of your house, or even if it is finished, we are adaptable. Even Bahay Kubo or Dampa, we have seen and experienced it all! (Any and all Host family contacts or identification is strictly confidential.)
