Hey there, thank you for stopping by! 🙂
My name is Glen, and I am a visually impaired blogger and Youtuber based in London. On my blog and Youtube channel I post about my experiences as a disabled person, my adventures when out and about, and other things that I enjoy.
I have 2 eye conditions – Aniridia (which makes me overly sensitive to glare and bright sunlight) and Nystagmus (which gives me shaky eyes, making it hard to focus on things unless they’re close up or enlarged). I’ve had them since birth, so my vision seems normal to me, and they haven’t stopped me living a full and happy life. I love going out and about and socialising, I’m a university graduate, and I’ve been working as an IT developer for well over a decade.
I moved to London at Christmas in 2016, which was a massive and daunting change in my life. But I’ve been having a great time exploring the city, trying new things and meeting new people. I also enjoy classic rock and pop music (60s-80s in particular), comedy, sci-fi & fantasy, and games & quizzes.
So please enjoy looking around, there should be something for everyone:
- If you’re visually impaired or disabled, or you look after any disabled people, I hope my experiences are of some interest and support to you.
- If you’re not disabled, I hope my disability posts help to clear up some false assumptions and misconceptions, and give you some useful insights and advice.
- And apart from that, I hope you find things in my travel adventures and entertainment tastes that you enjoy.
