2. New York Tribune founder Horace Greeley is best known for saying, “Go
West, young man.” Problem is, he didn’t say it. The quote actually came
from Indiana newspaper editor John B.L. Soule. In fact, Greeley’s own

From the pages of Donna’s travel diary
As a blind traveler, I really do not mind traveling in the fall. True it is
that my options of destinations may be somewhat limited but that’s okay.
There always seems to be somewhere to go. On a cruise to a warmer climate?
To a resort where they specialize in fall activities? Or maybe even on a
shopping trip to buy or stock up on some winter clothes?
Going to a resort where they specialize in fall activities should be
examined a bit more closely; especially so when it comes to ensuring that
accessibility for a blind person is assured.
What do I mean by this? That fall tours offer descriptions of sites for a
blind person. That there is assistance on hand for someone who is blind; to
help them navigate around when the tour makes stops for persons to walk
around or to have meals.
So before leaving home for your next fall adventure, make sure that all of
this is in place for you.
