Kristin's journey is more than just travel; it's about budgeting, diligent research and finding ways to make travel more affordable, and most importantly, inspiring others to break boundaries, to explore, and to live without limits. From witnessing the endurance of Emperor Penguins to experiencing the midnight sun phenomenon, Kristin takes us on her adventures across 20 countries, four continents, and especially, the awe-inspiring Antarctica. Kristin shares practical advice on how she navigates hurdles, like her use of Google Maps for accessibility research and tips on finding accommodations that truly understand the meaning of accessibility.  We also discuss the beauty of the world, the importance of making it accessible, and the unexpected joys of traveling. Despite the higher costs and the occasional lack of accessible facilities, Kristin's stories remind us that the world is full of experiences just waiting to be had!https://worldonwheelsblog.com/https://twitter.com/WorldonWheels6https://www.instagram.com/worldonwheelsblog/https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100073853057823Support the Show.Please download, like, subscribe, share a review, and follow us on your favorite podcasts app and connect with us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/wherenextpodcast/View all listening options: https://wherenextpodcast.buzzsprout.com/HostsCarol: https://www.instagram.com/carol.work.lifeKristen: https://www.instagram.com/team_wake/ If you can, please support the show or you can buy us a coffee.
