Wall walking has long been known as a “mobility aid” to those with multiple sclerosis.

MSer’s use walls and other stable surfaces to maintain their balance by constant touching when more preferred mobility aids (ie- canes, crutches, rollators) are out of reach.

Wall walkers are easy to spot as they generally must take the long way around the room as well as by the trail of waist-high fingerprints they leave behind.

 

Do not be embarrased wall walkers as I am one of you!

 

Not to brag, but being a jet-set, globe-trotter, I have wall walked around the world (Boy are my fingers tired) and would like to share my travels with you…..

 

 

Nearly tea time!
Nearly tea time!

Here I am wall walking at mysterious Stonehenge in the U.K.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is a long wall walk.

Here’s me at the Great Wall of China.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Not as tall as I thought.
Not as tall as I thought.

And me grabbing a bite to eat at the romantic Eiffel Tower in Paris!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Am I throwing a circle-change?

Back in the U.S., I’ve wall walked the Green Monster in Fenway Park.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Damn, someone better plug a hole!

And here I am at the Hoover Dam.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ain't no bunnies here!

That’s me exploring Easter Island in the Pacific.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oh geez, he saw me.
Oh geez, he saw me.

How could I forget wall walking at the Vatican!

(Luckily, I found a bowl of water to wash my hands.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

No thanks, I'm good.
No thanks, I’m good.

 

And finally, here I am at the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is safe to say I leave my mark (fingerprint) whereever I go.

And if you are a wall walker–don’t be ashamed by doing the same.

Happy travels.
