The Limitless StoryBy Elouise Mullen -
At 22-year-olds Angus was an investment banker working in London and was diagnosed with a muscle weakening condition called Muscular Dystrophy. He was told that his mobility would decline over time, and that one day he would be confined to a wheelchair. This came as a devastating shock, and Angus knew that his life would never be the same.
Always an avid traveller, shortly after his diagnosis Angus spontaneously quit his job, donned his backpack and decided to travel the world in order to experience all of its wonders before travelling became too difficult. With the support of his wife Lucy, Angus traversed over 35 countries, canoed in Vietnam, and even climbed to the top of Machu Picchu.
Throughout his journey, Angus’ mobility began to decline. He realized that the limitations that he experienced were not only due to his mobility, but also due to a lack of disability awareness and understanding, and a lack of facilities available to aid the modern traveller.
He decided that travel should not be exclusively available to the able-bodied. Travel had allowed him to learn about different cultures, try new foods, make lifelong relationships, and generally improved his outlook and positivity about life. He knew that he needed to do something that would enable the wider disabled community to travel without limitations, and so it was from Angus’ first-hand experience of travelling the world with a disability that Limitless Travel was born.
Since then, Limitless Travel has flourished into a specialist holiday provider for people with a wide range of mobility restrictions and disabilities. The Limitless Travel team is made up of people who have disabilities themselves, and people who have specialist knowledge about disabilities and the care industry, so that our travellers can be assured that their needs are not only listened to, but understood.
