Clarke, who spent 12 days in the emirates, uses a wheelchair and has spoken through a communication aid for more than 19 years.

“Everyone I met during my trip was very understanding and disability aware. I felt welcomed into the Emirati culture and learned so much,” she said.

The trip was funded and organised by Travel Counsellors and supported by the three emirates.

It included a desert safari, sailing and a trip to the Jebel Jais viewing deck, plus visits to Louvre Abu Dhabi, the Al Hosn Fort and Dubai Fountain show.

Travel Counsellors boss Steve Byrne said: “Nadia is the epitome of what you can achieve when you’re determined, driven and supported by people who cheer you on.”
