Elske de Vries - Grandmother of Tourism for All

Elske’s motivation to become involved with Tourism for All from the very beginning:

“I have personally experienced what it is like not to be able to participate in the good things of life. Our family consisted of my father, disabled by Multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's disease - my mother, who was visually impaired - my brother, who was severely physically disabled with cerebral palsy and I, the only one not disabled.

Traveling - in a time when the word ‘accessibility’ practically had no meaning - was not feasible for our family… with two wheelchairs the whole world was inaccessible!

In my vision travel and tourism are ‘the icing on the coffee’! These nice things usually appear at the very end, well after more ‘serious’ matters such as rehabilitation and schooling..... while travel and tourism can add so much fun to life.
Living with a disability and yet extend your horizons, it must be possible!”
