Year in Review: Your favourite blog posts of 2020

3 min read
2020 marked the second year for Able Amsterdam — and what a year it has been! Like many of us I’m especially happy about closing this annual chapter and welcoming what will hopefully be a (eventually) COVID-free 2021 for everyone.

Despite the restrictions of this year, Able Amsterdam has continued to grow. I’ve explored some great new places and (virtually) networked with some wonderful people over the past twelve months. A big thank you to everyone who has continued reading my blog. 

Here are your favourite blog posts of 2020:

4. 8 Wheelchair-friendly breakfast hotspots in Amsterdam

I kicked off the year with some of the best accessible breakfasts in Amsterdam — from heavenly eggs Benedict at Lotti’s to mouthwatering honeycomb pancakes at Dignita. Let’s just say this was an especially fun (delicious!) post to research about (eat for!). And yes, the granola bowl and pancakes in the photo above were as good as they look. Click here for a list of my favourite places for a wheelchair-friendly breakfast in the city.

3. Mobility aids in the spotlight: A review of the Alinker

It seems quite a few people (almost 1,500 to date!) somehow landed on this little corner of the Internet.
