My partner worked for many years at a well-known school for the blind, and so as avid travelers, we take a special interest in visually impaired travel experiences.

I’ve just seen this article published a few months ago by Afar.  Despite the somewhat hacky title, it is one of the best pieces I’ve ever read in the genre.  I recommend taking a look:

A Blind Man’s Trip Will Change the Way You Think About Safaris

If you like this article, then I highly recommend the terrific book by Jason Roberts, A Sense of the World.  It is the true biography of James Holman (1786-1857), who despite losing his sight as a youth, became one of the greatest travelers in history.  In the pre-motorized age, he visited nearly every part of the globe by foot, horseback, and sail, and recorded a detailed diary using a special writing device.  It’s a really astonishing and wonderful story.
