Kity is the webmaster of Equalitas Vitae and Silleros Viajeros, websites on accessible tourism that are very popular among wheelchair users. He has had a spinal injury for twelve years and, on his first forays out as a wheelchair user, he realised the lack of accessibility wherever he went. This led him to create Equalitas Vitae in order to help establishments adapt and spread the word among people with disabilities.

Equalitas Vitae was created without grand pretentions, but "after a while, people started to ask us to tell them about our trips, what we did and what the destinations were like in terms of accessibility." And this led to Silleros Viajeros, an extension of the website in the form of a blog. The blog is now open to anyone who wants to share their travels and experiences, and has more than twenty-five collaborators. There are only two requirements: that the travels be told from a positive point of view and that they discuss the accessibility of the destination. "We try to encourage other people in our same circumstances to travel. It's always reassuring to see how someone else with your same disability does it before you. This is what we try to convey and I'm sure we're doing it. I read the trips of other collaborators when I'm organising my getaways and they're a great help."

He and his wife normally travel once a month, whether to discover new places or to find new experiences in ones they already know. Plus, Kity likes to try out new "toys for wheelies", as he calls them, which allow him to expand his horizons and experiences. So, since he's been using one of our handbikes he's been able to venture into all-terrain destinations and do more demanding trips, as places that were previously difficult get around are now more accessible. Plus, Kity's increased autonomy means greater freedom for his wife as well, "So we both enjoy ourselves much more with our son. Once you start using a Batec handbike you don't know what to do without it."
