In about a week time, we will be welcoming a group of travelers from France for a trip to the South of the US. This group of about 20 people (about half are wheelchair users) comes to us via our long-standing relationship with APF, one of the leading and largest European organizations serving the community of people with mobility limitations. This is the fifth year that APF is partnering with Tapooz to organize accessible trips to the US and Canada.
First, we will spend a few days in Memphis, the birthplace of the Blues and (by some accounts) the undisputed capital of the BBQ. A road trip through Mississippi, closely following the mighty river, will take us to fascinating sites and towns such as Indianola, Vicksburg and Natchez where will we get a deep understanding of the culture and the history of the region. Finally, we will settle for a few days in the vibrant city New Orleans, the “Big Easy”. We will explore the Cajun and Creole cultures of this multi-faceted city and go out for daily expeditions to visit a plantation and hike in the bayous (on wheelchair accessible boardwalk of course). Stay tuned for stories and pictures of this exciting trip.
