Sit back and imagine you will be paid to ride a Triumph motorcycle around the world - with an expense account to boot. That's the story behind this book. Simon does a good job of describing the people and places he encounters. He meets a lot of frustration as well and overdoes the whining when things go awry which spoils it a bit. But overall an enjoyable adventure. One to read and reread every winter when the bike's parked in the garage.

Love the Adventure!
I stumbled upon Jupiter's Travels one dreary fall whilst living in NYC. Ted's adventure was wonderful and I really felt as though I was there with him. It inspired me to learn to ride (no small feat in triple-parked Brooklyn as a woman) and because anything less than a world trip was possible (thanks Ted). I've loved my trips and daily commutes. Having just seen the Long Way Round, I was delighted to see that Ewan & Charley met Ted Simon (Ewan's inspiration too) along the way. If you've ever been or aspired to be a motorcyclist, Ted Simon's book & the Long Way Round dvd get into your heart and head. I am so smiling.Was this review helpful?
