1. MIAMI BEACH APARTMENTS


If you're planning a holiday in Miami, Florida and would prefer an apartment rather than a pricey hotel, check out these two fully accessible apartments in the heart of Miami's lively South Beach district.

2. TRAVEL WRITER EXTRAORDINAIRE


Whether itís Cuba, Cayman, Curacao, Cozumel, Puerto Rico or Jamaica, Jane Danielson has wheelchair access info covered. Danielson, a professional travel writer published in the U.S. and Canada, does not, however, limit her to insights to the Caribbean; she also gives ample ink to Canada and the United States. Danielson generously offered to allow Global Access free use of her articles, but rather than parcel them out as feature stories, we think itís best to just point you to Janeís site, so you can start reaping her extensive access knowledge immediately. Head for Danielsonís archive of 52 articles at

Lowered floor buses are becoming more prevalent throughout the world, and now Christchurch, NZ joins the ranks of cities that have chosen to adopt this wonderfully accessible universal design. Thanks to Carrie K, of Pittsburgh, PA, for sending us this tip from her recent travels.
The Christchurch buses are not only accessible; they are also environmentally friendly electric shuttles. The three Christchurch buses, which operate seven days a week, have a capacity of 37 people, including one wheelchair user. To learn more, visit http://www.nzine.co.nz/features/designline3.html
