What Happened to You?
One woman. Four wheels. No limits. Between late 2015 and early 2021, award-winning accessible travel writer Sylvia Longmire visited 48 countries (34 of those solo), 176 cities, flew 444,714 miles, and spent 522 days away from home—all while completely relying on an electric wheelchair for mobility. Some call her crazy for traveling alone without the ability to walk, while others call her courageous for breaking the many stereotypes associated with disability. She just calls herself fortunate to have the opportunity to see so much of the world while her multiple sclerosis slowly progresses. But this book isn’t just about the sights and landmarks and landscapes Sylvia has seen, from Singapore and Sydney to Dublin and Dubai. It’s also about all the fascinating, curious, unusual, and helpful people she has met along the way, and the lessons they’ve taught her about the world—and herself. Some of her travel stories are funny, some are introspective, and others are downright gut-wrenching. But as you’ll read in these pages, they serve as the ultimate answer to the most common of questions asked of wheelchair users everywhere: ‘What happened to you?’
