About Me
Vacations with grandma

I love having my grandma living with us, but it does add some complications when we go on holidays. She uses a walker, which can limit the amount of places that we can stay. She loves seeing the ocean, so we try and head to the beach with her every summer. She also tells us stories of the beach holidays she had as a little girl, and it's great to hear about how much fun she had on holidays with her grandparents. This blog is all about going on holidays with grandparents and navigating finding accommodation for people with limited mobility.
