Traveling the World In A Wheelchair

wheelchair accessible travel

He is unassuming and enters the room in an unassuming fashion.  He takes the stage in his wheelchair, takes the mike and suddenly he is transformed.  He is a rock star no longer in disguise.

Cory Lee rocked the stage at TBex with his keynote that left the audience with tears in their eyes and a fire in their belly to charge forward for their dreams….  (he also left us with the all important reminder to always use the bathroom before we board a plane, particularly if in a wheelchair).

Cory is a world traveler and blogger and has seen most of the world by wheelchair.  He has a neurodegenerative disease that keeps him in a wheel chair and continues to weaken his muscles.  Nonetheless, this guy travels and he travels with a mission to inspire others in wheelchairs to travel as well.  #curbfreewithcorylee

Cory shared stories which for him were experienced much differently than we often think of as a typical traveler.  From harrowing stories of riding over cobblestones in Europe and Russia, to stories of so-called “wheel chair accessible” tours of the Amazon Rain Forest, to riding a Camel in Morocco, to riding in a van over pothole laden roads in Africa, he has experienced it all … and he shares it with his audience and serves as an inspiration.

He has been on 6 continents and has plans in the next few years to travel to the 7th,  Antarctica.  He is also running wheelchair accessible tours, however his currently scheduled trip to Iceland sold out in three hours.

With Cory’s humor and his tact, you will truly enjoy following his blog and seeing the world through his eyes.
