Kan livet overhovet være værd at leve i en kørestol og lammet fra armhuler og nedefter ? Positiv fortæling om 30 år i kørestol, efter at være en ung meget aktiv mand, til at være en mindst lige så aktiv mand, "nu bare på 4 hjul".
Man har kun et liv, brug det , nyd det.
Man er selv ansvarlig for at får noget ud af livet så det ikke bare kommer til at foregå hjemme ved fjernsyn og computer hele tiden. Jeg har valgt at bruge en stor del at tiden i Thailand pga. klimaet.

Travel between Thailand and Denmark 3 times per year in wheelchair.
I live about 6 month in Thailand every year. I have made a 3 year long contract on a nice house with 3 bedroom and 2 bathroom There are a 1.8 meter high wall around the house and a big metal sliding gate into a carport. Just after I rented the house I began to change it so it is wheelchair friendly. I have made a complete new European style bathroom. I have also made 2 concrete ramps because the house had 2 step up before.. I have also install a electric motor with remote control on the gate, so it's easy for me to get inside with my Trike motorcycle. The house have a nice garden area too, here are some palm tree and 2 big Mango tree. They house was including full furniture, but I already had furniture for all the house, So the house owner (from England). took the furniture to another place. It's very cheap to rent a house in Thailand... my house is a medium price, and i pay 100.000 baht = 2900 us dollars per year.
When i'm wheelchair user, there are a lot things to prepare before a 2 month travel. I need a lot medicine and toilet things like catheter, plasters and much more. My wheelchair need to be 100% okay. And need to temporary mail address change every time. I have all my clothes in my house in Thailand already, but my suitcase will be full with just all the things i need because of mu handicap. When i'm in Denmark i go to training center and physiotherapist 2 times per week. In Thailand I get Thai massage from the same very good massage lady 2 times per week. I need to keep my body fit, after 27 years in wheelchair ;-)
