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.

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA
