Overview

For four years during the 1970s Ted Simon rode a motorcycle around the world, something no-one had ever done before. He described his adventures first in regular bulletins for The Sunday Times and then, after his return, in Jupiter's Travels, a book that has become revered as a classic of travel writing. Published by Penguin, Jupiter's Travels has sold nearly a million copies in the intervening years and has remained in print throughout that time, remaining a strong seller even today. Ted Simon took a decent SLR camera on the trip, but only a handful of his several thousand color photographs were included in Jupiter's Travels. These are now included in the book published to coincide with the 40th anniversary of his ground breaking trip.
