> "Every time I leave on another trip," says David, "blind friends and
> acquaintances pepper me with questions: 'How do you get around countries
> with no public transportation? How do you deal with different types and
> sizes of currency? How do you travel overseas with a guide dog? Who
> describes the unique sights to you?'"
> In "Sites Unseen," David helps you decide where to go, when to go, how
> best to get there, how to find accessible travel websites and social
> networks; gives tips for navigating busy airports, sleeping overnight on
> trains, enjoying today's more comfortable bus lines, selecting a
> theme-based cruise, using accessible GPS, and more. "There are so many
> resources out there," says David. "People just don't know about them."
