"Every time I leave on another trip," says David, "blind friends and
acquaintances pepper me with questions: 'How do you get around countries
with no public transportation? How do you deal with different types and
sizes of currency? How do you travel overseas with a guide dog? Who
describes the unique sights to you?'"
In "Sites Unseen," David helps you decide where to go, when to go, how
best to get there, how to find accessible travel websites and social
networks; gives tips for navigating busy airports, sleeping overnight on
trains, enjoying today's more comfortable bus lines, selecting a
theme-based cruise, using accessible GPS, and more. "There are so many
resources out there," says David. "People just don't know about them."
With this book, you can travel the world with confidence.
