After spending hours in a tour vehicle, or wandering through a museum, market or garden, that all-important stop to take care of bodily needs is essential.
When traveling with a wheelchair, knowing where to find an accessible “Restroom / WC / Toilette” is even more important.
Of course, accessibility is sometimes broadly defined, as wheelchair-user Mark Wilson cleverly notes in this post “The Disabled or Wheelchair Accessible Loo.”
Today I’ll leave the humorous writing to Mark, and I will share few “potty photos” taken during my recent trip to New Zealand.
I was delighted to see that wheelchair users were welcome on the Hole-in-the-Rock cruise.
The Waitangi Treaty Grounds had a very modern facility.
Children, or road-weary travelers, know where to go!
Sometimes the facilities were spacious and blended well with the surroundings …
… and sometimes not!
Some were small and utilitarian …
… while others were spacious and comfortable.
None of our accommodations were meant to be wheelchair-accessible, and the bathrooms varied greatly.
Fortunately, the only chamber pots we encountered were those on exhibit at the historic houses we visited. Thank goodness!
As you can tell this post is meant to be lighthearted as well as informative, because having a sense of humor is essential when traveling!
