Publisher's Summary

When Ted Simon rode 64,000 miles round the world on his 500c Triumph Tiger, he inspired thousands of motorcyclists to begin their own adventures, including Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman, who chronicled their travels in Long Way Round. Nearly 30 years later, Ted Simon took to the road again to retrace the epic journey he made in his 40s. He meets up with old friends and acquaintances, revisits old landmarks and locations, and rediscovers himself, as well as the world, along the way. Dreaming of Jupiter is a remarkable achievement and a fitting sequel to Jupiter’s Travels, the groundbreaking classic of motorcycle adventure.

Amazing book, Amazing Man

I loved Jupiter's travels and I loved Dreaming of Jupiter just as much. Somehow, Ted Simon manages to marry the magic of riding a motorcycle with the world around him, relating the trials, joys and tribulations of travel. This isn't just an I rode from here to there book fastened on the details of the motorcycle, it's a joyous hymn to doing it all over again no matter how old you get. I am in absolute awe of Ted Simon. As a biker myself, who at the age of 68 stepped off my beloved Triumph, I salute him for his energy, courage, curiosity and perseverance. Long may he wave, so worth a listen.

excellent

this is very well read with excellent impressions or accents and people. the book is almost as good as the first. the author holds different views than my own, but his points are well made and hold my attention. however I must say he is borderline supercilious in his views and writing. a sin forgivable given what he has done. e excellent book.

left me nearly in tears....

Couldn't wait for the second rtw (Round The World) pilgrimage of this exceptionally good writer. At 70 doing it again. The reality of our worlds direction is both enjoyable and priceless. The narator is now my flavour of the year. He is excellent! You MUST listen or read Jupiters Travels first.
