9780349119601: Dreaming of Jupiter

In 1974 Ted Simon set out on a round-the-world trip by motorbike, a journey he recounted in 'Jupiter's Travels'. 24 years later, at the age of 69, Ted decided to retrace his journey. How much had the world changed? How much had he changed?

About the Author:

Ted Simon was raised in London, studied chemical engineering but went to Paris where he fell into journalism. He has ridden twice around the world on a motorcycle, and published five books on travel and other matters. He now lives in northern California. He has one son.

Review:

Gloriously luminescent, but always self-deprecating. Simon's physical powers are diminishing, but his writing just gets better. The wonderful portraits of the people he encounters, often redolent of Bruce Chatwin, are sometimes so enticing that, were this a movie, you'd swear they were a plant for later on OBSERVER This book has barely left my side in the past few days. It is, by turns, sad, funny and immensely uplifting TELEGRAPH A trip of dreams - and Ted Simon has done it twice ... a terrific read RTE GUIDE He was on the road for three years, and his new book, Dreaming of Jupiter, is a compelling account of the adventures en route, including breaking a leg in the middle of a vast plain in Ethiopia; a reunion with a camel rider he'd met 25 years before in Eg SAGA MAGAZINE

Descrizione libro Little, Brown Book Group, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. UK ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. Ted Simon is the author of the classic travel book JUPITER S TRAVELS. It documents his four-year journey round the world by motorbike, travelling through Europe, Africa, South and North America, and Asia. A number one bestseller in the late 1970s, it is still regarded as one of the greatest motorcycle books - indeed, one of the greatest travel books - ever written. In 2001, at the age of 69, Ted Simon decided to retrace his journey, and DREAMING OF JUPITER is the result. It took him two and a half years - during which time he revisited all the countries he had travelled through in the 1970s. He found much had changed, and he reflects upon the increased poverty, political upheavals, environmental issues and indeed the changes in himself. But ultimately, DREAMING OF JUPITER is a hugely inspiring read with a positive message at its heart - that even at the age of 70 you can still set off on an adventure, and be surprised and excited by what life throws at you along the way.
