33 - Travel inspiration from Anthony Ghillino during a global pandemic

During this time of uncertainty of the Covid-19 pandemic, enjoy some armchair travel with Lois Strachan and her guests. Even though we can't physically travel right now, we feel it's important that we keep sharing stories, travel inspiration and our experiences for the time when we are able to go out into the world again.

Our guest today, is Anthony Ghillino who is the general manager of QASA, the QuadPara Association of the Western Cape, here in South Africa. Anthony became paralysed 28 years ago as a young man after the open bakkie he was travelling in overturned on his way home from a picnic in a local nature reserve. He uses a motorised wheelchair with a chin control, and shares his insights and experiences of travelling.
