I found rental cars in Europe an excellent idea, parking can be a bit
tricky, but the freedom of schedule and location is excellent if you
have specific destinations in mind that may be off the beaten path. Of
course I haul along a wheel chair, and traveling with a chair on a train
is a pain in the rump [frex many train stations in Germany are isolated,
and have a cross under the tracks, and you have to climb stairs to get
to the platform - they do have a cute little ramplet for bicycles but a
person in a chair has to get out and gimp up the steps if possible while
the chair gets schlepped up separately. Not good if you cant gimp or
Can't remember offhand, will you be movement impaired or is your rehab
going to restore you to pretty much full movement? It can make a
difference for traveling. Also, fatigue factor ... I know that just
sitting and driving a car can get me pretty fatigued after a whole day,
so is sitting on a train/airplane - so definitely slow travel with
plenty of days stopped and resting will help out.
