Our friend, Srin Madipalli, launched the Accessible Travel Club group on Facebook this past summer and has attracted a growing audience of over 6,300 members thus far. A Spinal Muscular Atrophy survivor and wheelchair user, Srin has always been an avid traveler and has not allowed his disability to restrict his thirst for adventure and with this group, he seeks to galvanize other travelers with disabilities to share their knowledge and experience of travelling.

Srin has been to many European countries, Southern Africa, India, Australia, Brazil, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore and Indonesia. He now works at Airbnb where he has led a team to help making travelling more accessible.

Members of the Facebook group often share pictures of their travels which are helpful to better visualize accommodations. Srin invites you to join the group and help the disability community become more knowledgeable and comfortable about the many travel options available to them.
