This small autobiographical record of a few solo trips on two walking sticks to Asia, Australasia and the Caribbean takes a look at the spirituality of travel, the travel of spirituality, and the humour in all of it.

It could rightly be said that nothing I experienced was dramatic in comparison to the truly exciting and/or scary human events daily found on the Internet and in TV programmes, but my journeys achieved something greater. They allowed me to grow.

When I was first diagnosed, I was advised to expect immobility, and was counselled to accept stasis; instead, I went around the world and I am still smiling at it. I hope that you will follow me if you have recently been visited by disability.

It is often said that laughter is the best medicine, to which I would now add that travel is the best laughter and the richest religion.

Geoff Ruggeri Stevens has had progressive multiple sclerosis for more than 40 years (first symptom 1977).


His education comprises two degrees: BA Economics 1967 and MSc Management Science 1975. After graduating in 1967, he worked in transport sector market research, hospital computing and health service planning. But his working life really took off in late 1988 when he became a full-time lecturer at a UK south coast business school, a position he was to hold until he retired in 2014.
