What Aloha Means To Us
Aloha is a powerful, vibrant energy that connects us to the beauty and grace of the world around us; a spirit of love, compassion, and generosity that brings people together and creates a sense of belonging and unity. Aloha is more than just a word; it is a way of life. Aloha is the light that guides us on our journey through life, illuminating the path ahead and filling our hearts with hope and joy.
The word travel is a commonly used word in the BVI community in regards to cane travel. This term is associated with the feeling of independence and freedom. As “travelers” we use our mobility canes, guide dogs or sighted guides to gain access to independently and establish a newfound sense of freedom. With our accessible tools we travel safe, sound and confidently.
Often, vision loss brings a feeling of hopelessness, scarcity and loneliness. The tools we use give us a liberating feeling of confidence and independence. That feeling is what we at Travel Visions Aloha are striving to provide our community.
Together, let’s travel and move in confidence, experiencing things we may not have thought possible otherwise. United we stand with our canes in hand and the use of our sighted guide in unfamiliar spaces ensuring our safety, security and general well being.
