OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOver the winter University holidays Lucy and I went to Europe for a month. We did a week in each of Ireland (mostly Dublin), London, Amsterdam, Paris and 2 days in Dubai. We had an absolute ball, none of which

Im not sure what my favourite place was, probably Dublin as it gave us a chance to catch up with a couple of our best mates who live over there.
Accessibility wise it wasn’t to bad, we knew we were going to have difficulties and if your prepared for that then its ok. Hardest thing was probably finding disabled toilets. Im very fortunate I am able to get around in a manual wheelchair as a
lot more planning would need to be done if your in an electric chair.IMG_1140

On June 23rd 2012 my life changed forever. A normal incident in a normal game of Aussie rules football left me with C5-C6 quadriplegia. In an instant I went from a 23 year old who never sat still, to spending 8 months in hospital and looking at the prospect of spending my life in a wheelchair. Before the incident I played any sport and would be up for any outdoor activity and even quit a commerce degree at the thought of sitting down to work all day. Things have definitely changed for me. Until recently, my family and I had no idea about spinal cord injuries. This is why I want to share my experiences of living with a spinal cord injury and the difficulties that come with it. The support I have received from family, friends and even people I haven't met has been unbelievable, I just want to show you all what you have helped me achieve and that I'm going to live a normal and happy life, even if it is in a chair.
