I hope you can manage without me for a few days, I'm going on holiday tomorrow to Yorkshire. I'm going with a travel company called
they organise holidays for blind and visually impaired people, and take the same amount of sighted people, who act as the eyes for those who can't see. We are staying in a hotel in Skipton, and having trips out to York and Howarth, a narrow boat cruise, and a visit to Skipton Castle.
Although I have been to the area before, I am looking forward to meeting new and interesting people. The boss of the company, Amar Latif, is coming along as well, he is lovely, can't wait to see him again. He has his own web site
I had a holiday with them three years ago to Italy, it was fantastic but quite mentally demanding. You are paired up with a different person every day, and have to make sure they are safe, describe what you see, and help them to make the best of their holiday, as well as enjoying it yourself. It's a win win situation really, everybody is happy.
I'll see you when I get back and tell you all about it. Toodle pip.
For a change....
