The Rolling Rains Report

The Rolling Rains Report
Dr. Scott Rains


We are pleased that Dr. Scott Rains will be a periodic contributor to our Blog and the Travel Department of Computer School for Seniors.

Travel for the elderly and people with disabilities can be very challenging. Dr. Rains looks for solutions to those challenges. In particular he searches for examples of how Universal Design creates new travel opportunities and products that are, to quote the definition of Universal Design, usable by the widest range of people operating in the widest range of situations.
Trying times call for trying something new!

People are asking, "Does it really have to be this uncomfortable to travel?" .
The travel & hospitality industry is sensing the spark of something new as people answer, "No, and we plan to do something about it."

Fresh thinkers are testing countless breakthrough ideas on accessible travel. They are rubbing ingenuity against continuity to enkindle a new flame.

At Rolling Rains we monitor that brush fire as it reveals ideas that are standing the test of the times.

The concept of Inclusive Travel is itself traveling around the world. It is leaving an infrastructure that will allow the pleasure of world discovery to generations to come. It enables generations present to do so through all stages of their lifespan. That's the vision of Universal Design applied to tourism -- Inclusive Tourism.
