Tips On Taking A Holiday In Inaccessible Countries

It took 2 years after my son’s rugby accident to take the courage to go somewhere inaccessible and since we live in Asia we really wanted to go to Thailand, so off we went to Koh Samui!

Firstly, we packed up the hoist and took in on the plane the hoist turned out to be a brilliant piece of equipment as we hoisted him in and out of the pool everyday, where he lay for hours with his floats and consequently had no spasm at all, even though he wasn’t doing therapy

Secondly, we could only hire a regular van so the locals kindly made a wooden ramp we then used rope to tie up the chair inside the van – so we could use this van to go out

Finally, our friend’s villa where we stayed was very flat and they had made a couple of wooden ramps for the odd spoit

The only problem was when we arrived in Koh Samui there was no airplane wheelchair – one of the passengers had stolen it so we negotiated all week to make sure the return flight went well and it did. Always check that they have a skychair

It was a great holiday!
