A travelling crip’s temporal expenses

Résumé

The following temporal expenses list comes exclusively from the author’s experience as a crip academic based in France but travelling around the world with their mobility scooter. Everything mentioned happened in recent years and only includes the peculiar, hard-to-plan-for events. Not all events are related to disability but the impact they have is a large part of traveling as a crip, as one has to plan for the unforeseen, lest incidents that would be at best anecdote-worthy for someone else become disastrous.
