In 1977, Ted Simon took his first ride around the world by motorcycle, traveling through Europe, Africa, South and North America, and Asia. The result was Jupiter’s Travels, a number one best-seller in the late 1970s and one of the greatest motorcycle books — and indeed one of the greatest travel books — ever written. Recently, in 2001, at the age of 69, Simon decided to retrace his famous journey, and this book is the result. It took him two and a half years, during which he revisited all the countries he had traveled through his first time ‘round. He found much had changed, and he reflects upon the increased poverty, political upheavals, environmental issues and changes in himself. This book is a hugely inspiring read with a positive message at its heart... that no matter what age you are, you can still set off on an adventure and still be surprised and excited by what life throws at you along the way.
