so those of you who have traveled, what do you find easier to travel on, plane, train, or bus (bus meaning greyhound)?

ya, I find the wheel chair thing quicker sometimes and then sometimes its a pain. But security is an ease with the help because you don't have to wait in line and wizz through

I think they are super nice to the blind, they will not insist on helping but they will offer to push you in a wheelchair so that you can get to your flight quicker and get on faster. if you wait to long people start shoving and with carry-on bags it can get messy so the staff just tries to help. But you can refuse if you want, i just find it more cconvenient to accept their help.

I'm flying on an airplane for the first time since I've been completley blind; any tips? I'll be with my mom and a freind, so is airport staff still going to try to help me? As long I'm with my mom and freind I won't need any other help. Does the airport treat blind people the same way they treat people who aren't blind? Anybody have any wierd airport experiences?

Yeah, I agree with Mimi. A plane is my favorite way to travel. When I took the bus to the mall, it took two hours. It was awful!
