I do love travelling. Sometimes I think it's an addiction and I have to do it... But I also want to do it and need to do it; as it's part of keeping my body moving. In 2006 my world changed when I had to retire early from work because of multiple sclerosis (MS). I'd a successful career in the health industry and there was a lot more I wanted to achieve but had to leave. Because I wasn't working, I had time. Managing a chronic illness takes time but I also had spare time. With that I could do more of the things that I loved, such as travelling. I also discovered that I enjoyed writing about these experiences. Travels with my scooter have often ended up with so many funny stories from things that happened, I've ended up with more interesting and funny times than when I travelled without it. I cannot travel alone as I did before on my first trip overseas in 1976. I need Sue now, who is my best friend and helper these days. She travels with me everywhere and we are a great team. I've written this collection of travel tales of my adventures over the last forty years. Some are from when I was in my twenties and others more recently with my scooter. All of them are filled with my passion for living life and enjoying the wonderful experiences of a world I am lucky to have seen and look forward to seeing more of. I trust you will find your own enjoyment in my sharing.



"A wonderful collection of great adventures and human spirit with the true Australian humour and flare for the absurd...a great book and read by a very real and talented author..." Dillon, Indiebooks reviewer. "...It is a testament to the joys and surprises that await someone who takes the plunge and just hits the road. Maureen Corrigan is an adventurer in the truest meaning of the word. She started her pursuit of travel after being diagnosed with MS. She is herself a physician, which may explain in part why she didn't just curl up in a ball and focus on things she couldn't do when she found out she had MS, but instead focused on doing the things she had always dreamed of doing. That's taking lemons and opening a lemonade stand. My hat off to her and I find myself thinking that this is a person I would love to meet..." Ray Simmons, Readers' Favorite US
