Our DIY travel wheelchair in action

So, we thought we had come up with a pretty good solution for an all purpose travel wheelchair for our lovely nine year old daughter, Sparky, who has Cerebral Palsy. You may have read about how we put it together here;  We’ve received so many questions about the details of our solution, hopefully the following is useful to some and not too boring for others! Even if you are not a wheelchair user, there is a cool video and Sparky’s great interview.

Xi’an – a trip that was almost worth it

The terracotta warriors, since their discovery in 1976, have toured the world as exhibition items in museums.  I saw them in Perth as a primary school student.

But we could not pass up the opportunity to see the thousand of warriors in the actual ground where they’ve stood guard for 2200 years. So we booked overnight train tickets to Xi’an. It was an uneventful trip, we enjoy trains and this one was just fine. In fact it was the most luxurious train trip we’ve had, we even had clean sheets, our very own power point and disposable slippers which Chris was quick to try out.
