Great job to run this important blog. I particularly liked the travel info on a river cruise and no problem with cobblestone areas. I had traveled in Europe fairly extensively before losing my RT leg above the knee in a SF General Hospital error after going by ambulance after crashing in my son's bathroom later discovered as a burst brain aneurysm prior to getting ready to leave for Airport back to Seattle.
I didn't know about the scooter until several years later - it's absolutely been wonderful - I went to the local mall and I hadn't been there for 8 years. I recently went around Greenlake in Seattle and I hadn't been there in many, many years. I've been on 3 cruises and with using the TravelScoot, I was able to go and see everything and made every excursion off the boat. I can walk a bit with my prosthesis but the phantom pain would set in and it was a 12 on the pain scale to walk enough to get back to the car. Now, it's like being at Disneyland - so fun, and I still have my energy at the end of the day and no pain!!!
I've wanted for years to go on a European river cruise but when I called travel agents and the river cruise lines -they discouraged me and said the off boat excursions would not accommodate me. I'm going to check on the information after reading about the man that used his Travelscoot on a river cruise and excursions! Thank you Elizabeth for facilitating this informative forum for TravelScoot people.
