October 2006 - July 2007
Wheeling Australia - the Giant Loop
Australia is a fantastic country with a lot of things to offer.I have been on a roundtrip together with my manual wheelchair for almost 9 months. The route I have traveled adds up to 43.377 kilometers.

September 2006:
Wheeling Amsterdam - material girls live to tell

January 2006:
Wheeling Cape Town and the Garden Route

We went for the extended version of the tour "7 Day Cape Town & Garden Route" with the company Endeavour Safaris. Before the tour, we spent a few days in Cape Town. After the tour, we spent three days at a guesthouse in Hout Bay. We had a brilliant holiday, and hopefully this travel & access report will inspire even more people to make their dream about South-Africa come true...

November 2003:
Wheeling El Gouna - a travel report from Egypt

As a summary, I guess we can say that if you’re looking for an accessible, family friendly place with good and not too expensive food, where the sun is shining almost all year long, the Hotel Mövenpick El Gouna is a good alternative. Travelling in Egypt however, is a completely different story...
