Publisher's Summary

Following the hugely popular and successful Around the World in 80 Days and Pole to Pole, Michael Palin set off to meet another challenge: an anti-clockwise circumnavigation of the world's largest ocean, the Pacific.

Eighteen countries border the vast expanse of sea that is the Pacific. Palin travelled through them by air, train, boat, car, and on foot, exploring some of the most beautiful landscapes on earth. As he moved through different countries he met the wonderfully diverse communities that make up their populations, many of whom lead far from ordinary lives.

Whether he's talking to head-hunters in Borneo or eating maggots in Mexico, Palin recounts his adventures in a vivid and lively style that brilliantly evokes the full colour and richness of the Pacific Rim.

What the Critics Say

"Let's capture Michael Palin and make him bring us on his next voyage....The combination of his glee, his sensitivity, and a good headset is a fulfilling way to travel." (AudioFile)

    "Palin shares his eccentric journey. 5 stars!"

    A very personal account of travel insights from an accomplished observer and "experiencer" of life. He is courageous and has the gusto to share, and paint it large. Bravo, Mr. Palin! I loved it. - Carolyn Cole, San Pablo California.

    "AWESOME!"

    Michael Palin is well-known for his talented acting and as a talented comedian as one of the Monty Python gang. Well, he has another talent - as the author of his "travel" series with the BBC! The book is delightfully written, eloquent, and brings to life as though you were there! A talented man and a delightful "read"!

    "Excellent"

    I have travelled to many of the countreis described by Michael Palin described in this book - and I'm a bit sad to not have discovered as much as he did. But this also makes this book a great read. Michael's English humour adds spice to the story, very intelligently told.

    "Michael's World"

    Michael Palins epic journeys are as interesting and enjoyable to read as they are in the original BBC series.

    Michael's warmth and friendliness is felt thoughout the book. He is always eager and present. Always trying to understand the everyday life of places he visits and people he meets.

    Michael is the best narratoryou will find.

    I really enjoyed this book. It is highly recommended.

    "Full Circle"

    Michael Palin can do no wrong in my opinion. Fabulous book and fabulous narration. Really enjoyed it. I just wish audible or the publishing company could make the audiobooks available in the unabridged versions. I feel like I am missing out with the abridged versions. I realise this would make the audiobooks more expensive, but in my opinion it would be worth it.

    Very entertaining and great service from Audible once again. Easy to download and purchase. Fantastic.
