Sight-feeling: Travel for the disabled

A group of twelve blind and partially sighted people traveling to Brussels to check in on a flight at Heathrow Airport.

We all know what a pain it is to travel these days. Long lines at the airport, the security hassles, jam-packed flights, baggage fees, perhaps even the lost hotel reservation.

But just think about what it would be like to navigate all the details of traveling if you couldn't see. Gary Metzler is blind. He and his wife, Jackie Hull, run Outta Sight Travel in Port St. Lucie, Fla., and they specialize in planning vacations for the disabled.

Take a listen to the audio above about how Jackie and Gary prepare for their vacations and what "sight-feeling" is like.
