On 7th March 2019 BBC Two aired a travelling show with a difference, Travelling Blind.
This featured Amar Latif, founder of Travel Eyes and comedian Sara Pascoe as they embark on an adventure across Turkey. This is a truly beautifully filmed programme, which takes you on the adventure with them. Reminding us, to use all our senses to really embrace life and every experience we encounter.
The programme was both inspirational and funny as their very different worlds and personalities collide.
What is the Big Activity Challenge?
ASUK are now offering adults (18’s and over) who are affected by Alström Syndrome, the chance to try a new activity. You can apply for between £50-£500 to pay for the activity, all we ask you do is provide some photographs and write an article for publication in the ASUK newsletter (within a month of the activity) telling us about your experience, how accessible it was, what you achieved, if you’re going to take it up as a new hobby etc. Or, if you would rather tell us about your experience, we can help you produce a podcast for the ASUK website. Who knows, you may inspire others to try out new activities too!
