I try to learn a bit of the local language. I always read numerous books on the history, culture & religion. Interested in the culture & people of the countries that we are visiting.
Sad that travel reviewers & hotel chains are not addressing the needs of the disabled, and if they are, the assumption is 'accessibility'. They're not taking into consideration that there are disabled travelers (not only the elderly, but people with hip & knee replacements or back surgery) who are able to walk, but can't climb stairs, climb in/out of tubs or off of very low beds or have difficulties rising from low beds/chairs/toilets. Some of us have difficulty moving vertically, not horizontally. Hotels need pools w/ ramps, showers that don't require climbing into a tub & ramps instead of stairs. They need to stop designing hotels with stairs that do not also include a ramp.
