Jupiter's Travels

For Christmas, Vincent gaves me this wonderful book of Ted Simon's Adventures around the globe and i wanted to share it with you ...



Ted Simon :

This is the best known of my books. It tells about my four-year journey around the world on a Triumph motorcycle.
The first half of the journey took me the length of Africa, from Tunis to Capetown, then around South America from the tip of Brazil to the Argentine Pampas and from Chile north through Panama to California.
Then I rode around Australia, and from Singapore overland to Europe through India, Afghanistan, Iran, and Turkey.

Jupiter's Travels was a bestseller in the eighties.
The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times and the London Times among many others, all praised it.
Motorcycle Sport called it "...the best motorcycle travel book ever written." Readers and reviewers agree it is much more than a travel book.
It is a book that changes lives, and there are many readers' letters to prove it. In the years sinceJupiter's Travels was first published it has sold more than 400,000 copies world-wide.
