The year 2020 has been a tough year for all of us, especially those who harbor a never-ending wanderlust. Yet, the lockdown gave us a perfect opportunity to pause our frantic lives and look back fondly at happy and cherished memories. In Walking and Wheeling Tales, Maureen T Corrigan chronicles seventeen such stories, sharing snippets and anecdotes from her travels worldwide. From the giant polar bears roaming in the snow-laden Churchill to the towering giraffes and majestic lions of the African grassland, Corrigan has seen it all. Her adventures have taken her everywhere - from Japanese trains to a Venetian cruise, from mystic Greenland to exuberant Hawaii. As a patient of progressive multiple sclerosis, a mobility scooter has been her constant companion. Even in these pandemic times, she has kept her dream of traveling aflame.
I was amazed at the richness of Maureen T Corrigan’s globetrotting experiences. Equally commendable is her indomitable spirit that never let MS take complete control over her life. She had accepted her condition and overcome it with two powerful weapons - her beloved scooter and a dream to travel. I believe the scooter was a central character in her book, as it gave rise to several interesting situations. In a simplistic yet elegant style, Corrigan recounted many such hilarious incidents and how these often turned their trips in unexpected directions. Studded with colored photographs, Walking and Wheeling Tales gives a detailed account of diverse cultures and lifestyles they encountered in different countries. A perfect read during lockdown times, this book will take you to distant places when you are stuck at home.
