My Summer Plans? I’m Leaving on a Jet Plane…

Filed under: Traveling with a Disability — by at 12:14 pm on Wednesday, June 20, 2012

Yippee! Summer is officially here, finally. Hopefully summer weather will follow shortly.

July is gearing up to be a busy month travel-wise for me:

Saturday, July 14th in San Jose

Thanks to an irresistible invitation from my web accessibility colleague and friend John Foliot, I am presenting “Surf a GB with Glenda’s Thumb” at Open Web Camp IV to be held at the PayPal Town Hall.

John has put together a stellar speakers’ list, which includes some of the brightest people working in the web industry. If this is your thing, get your $10 ticket today! They are going fast.

Saturday, July 28th in Philadelphia

With a big thank you to WishUponAHero, I am climbing the steps at the Philadelphia Museum of Art with the spirit of Rocky Balboa! Yes, I am doing it!!

If you happen to be in or around Philly on July 28th, please join me and the team from WishUponADream. The day is shaping up to be amazing.

More details to come shortly.

Wednesday, August 1st in Pittsburgh

I am presenting “The New AAC: Glenda’s Life-Changing Story Starring the iPad” at the 15th Biennial Conference of the International Society for Augmentative and Alternative Communication (ISAAC  2012 – July 28 to August 4).

If you are attending ISAAC, don’t be shy – please come up and introduce yourself I’d love to meet you!

As for my plans for August? I am favouring a week or two staycation and reading something other than a business book or a biography. Danielle Steele has likely written an entire bookcase since I last read one of her books way back in university.

Then I’ll need to start putting together my presentation and organizing details for my potential trip to Albuquerque in mid-October! But that is another post…Smile

What are your summer plans? Or, if you are living in the other half of the world, your winter plans?

If you enjoyed this post, consider buying me a chai tea latte. Thanks kindly.

My summer plans are really boring lol I have classes all through the summer. In the first half, I’m taking Mythology and Health. In the second half, I’m taking World History and Technical Writing. *yawn*

I hope your summer is much more exciting lol

Good luck Glenda!
unfortunately, I will be in the neighbourhood on July 29th. I will stop by and check with onlookers and passers-by – I am sure they will still be talking about the amazing woman that climbed the steps the day before.
When you get to the top, shout out “ADRIANNE!!!” It will add to the whole experience, trust me. I truly wish I could have been there with you on the day. Good luck and godspeed
