Hello to all my friends in Trinidad and Tobago.
Finally...... We are almost there, with mom.
Very exited to see all of you again and catch waz up ;)
Mom has been paralyzed for last 5 and half years ...
I did not know it s possible to fly with her like she is...learned in January that ...it is possible.
Been long planning, finally we got to borrow lightweight wheelchair for her.
I am still "pimping" her drive and fixing softer support etc on it, but very happy how... (relatively) easy ... steps/ pumps on the road etc are with it.
It can also be taken in few parts to fit into car trunk.
Got sliding board and made lifting belt my self, so we can easier lift her from wheelchair to bed, car, etc.
So technically we are good to go.
For time being I am on planning details.
Having dates in mind...need to have place/s to stay.
Maybe for 4 weeks, but interested also options for 1-5days.... since I want to show mom EVERYTHING... I have a feeling we will be all over the T&T ;).
Will be doing this trip with my moms tempo thou...but she loves travelling and I would guess she want to see it all too...will see day by day.
She used to take me many times per year on travelling, so it will be my pleasure to introduse her T&T
...her 1st time in Caribbean ☺
Would like place near beach, or otherwise nature nice location (daa-a that did not really limit it down...T&T)
Preferred 2rooms and kitchen or house.
If its only few days - its ok if we share the room, but otherwise I would like to give her some privacy for nights.
She will not be able to use toilet anyway, so no need to special gear In that section.
Street level or few steps are ok ... so I can still lift her without needing to ask help ;),
not 2nd or more floors up.
As I mentioned in the video she want to go to swim in ocean, so interested of beaches where is not too much steps or hard to enter.
Not Pirate Bay with 100 steps to enter. Same style as Maracas, Pigeon Point or Store Bay ...easy to drive in with wheelchair.
Mom (and me) loves nature and wildlife.
Places to see monkeys, turtles etc in wildlife.
Is the turtle season still on?
Any specific areas... best as season now?
Last time many started telling me after my trip, and after my videos ...what I should have done...so here is your change...let us know BEFORE ;) , lol
Thank you for all the good advises since my last trip..some of those we will be using now ;)
I lost almost all phone numbers since the waterproof bag did not hold on my last swimming trip in Store Bay... so if you want me to be able to contact .... Email, or inbox me your phonenumber, thank you.
Not sure if my old bmobile simcard is still working or if I need new one, will post on FB wall the correct number after I get to T&T.
If bmobile card has expired....recommendations witch phone company is IN?
I read somewhere that T&T busses take wheelchairs...is that correct info?
See you soon....really missing the sunshine, nature and people of T&T.....soon ☺
