So glad you enjoyed the trip! We gave Jennae's contact info to Gavin for you and actually did another trip with A2A this Summer. Our son is a C3-4 quad and has really, really enjoyed traveling, despite the occasional bumps (when we flew Cape Town - Durban, f.ex., we had to get OFF the airplane after boarding cause they finally admitted his chair would not fit on the plane, no way no how).
What has remained with us from both trips is how kind the people we encountered were, the randomest people would come up to our son and, simply and directly, wish him the best and pray for him.
bless your heart Autrey! This was the trip of a lifetime and I am planning on going back in two years. I will visit that amazing school again and I am making arrangements to ship used children's wheelchair and parts over there. I am even planning on shipping my used motorized chair over there (thinking of shipping it with me in it!)
I learned much about deprivation, gratitude and the ways of nature.
Thank you again!
