An excellent article..

BBC News - 'Multiple sclerosis didn't stop me travelling world'

"If you had told 30-year-old George Pepper, from Leeds, a few years ago that he would travel round the world, he wouldn't have believed you.
That his girlfriend would accompany him and return as his fiancée, was a little less of a surprise - for him at least.
"We were in Florianopolis in Brazil. I'd got the ring beforehand, there was a really nice beach...," he says, voice tailing off as he recalls the romantic proposal.
George's trip was particularly special because he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis when he was 22."

That is wonderful! I personally know how difficult it is to travel with some form of disability; it is certainly not easy- so Bless him for doing it, having fun and coming back with a Fiancée!
