Here some interesting travel links that I've come across. I haven't tried any of these so I'm not saying if they're good or bad, that's up to you to decide. Happy travels :D

Hi Judy,
Thanks for all your ideas, and as you say it is very much up to the individual to decide whether they are good or bad! In the Transport & Travel section of SpinalHub there is an article with some tips for travelling and a checklist to help you find the right accommodation for your own needs.
SpinalHub is keen to hear of any travel stories!
