I want to inspire you to travel the world independently and with confidence.
My mission is to inspire you to travel the world independently and with confidence.
Hi, I’m Patrick. “I’m a rambler and a gambler and a long way from home.” as the classic Irish pub song Whiskey In The Jar proclaims. Let me explain. I am of Irish heritage, visually impaired and love to travel the world to new and exciting places. Now that I am retired (Yay!) my travels to places I’ve never seen have definitely taken an upturn.
Being one who has never been able to see as well as most others over my lifetime has caused me to develop equalizing ways of doing many of the things that fully sighted folks take for granted. I like to say that my one challenge that I can’t meet is to be able to drive a motor vehicle. Well, legally that is. For most, as low vision and blind people, we tend to figure out other ways of doing things. Other ways of getting from Point A to Point B. So that is why I say, “No license. No limits!” I can get accomplished anything that a person with 20/20 can. When I tell folks that one of my best jobs was as a TV cameraman they for some reason don’t believe me. That is until they get to know me better.
So, let’s hang out, have fun, travel safely while we learn and grow!
