Traveling the World, Solo and Without Sight

Tony Giles is a world traveler based in Teignmouth, England. He’s got the spirit of an adventurer, having visited over 125 countries and all seven continents, all without sight. Born with a rare eye condition, Tony lost his vision completely at the age of 9. Despite being blind and 80% deaf in both ears, nothing could hold Tony back. After going on his first adventure at age 16, he was bit by the travel bug and has been exploring the world ever since.
