Visiting Amsterdam

2015-05-21 by José Belo about a travel in Amsterdam

My name is José Belo and I am from Portugal. I had a car accident in October 2006 and I have problems with mobilization. I had a TCE (craneoencephalic trauma) and I need a wheelchair for circulate.

My last internacional travel was for participating in a European Voluntary Service (EVS) in Murcia, Spain – the city from the Iberian Peninsula with more concerns about accessibilities. In October 2014, I decided to go to Amsterdam with my girlfriend. I’ve been for one week in a holidays travel.

For me, Amsterdam was a place where everybody is concerned. It was amazing the difference it makes in common life, it seems like a door was open and persons with less mobility were free. It makes a big difference to our mobility, individual pride and to our self-notion as people in general, to feel care from another. With this travel, I became more optimistic to the world.

Amsterdam has at every place and time the basic conditions, people in each museum taking care of mobility concerns. It was inevitable the comparison between Murcia, Amsterdam and Lisbon. Amsterdam seems to me the future of humanity: hoping that the future becomes better.

It was important have got the support from the company Accessible Travel Netherlands during our time in Amsterdam, and also was nice to had help from the intern of the Leonardo da Vinci program; Emmanuelle, who talked in portuguese and showed us some nice places to visit.
