Jupiter’s Travels is considered a cult book for all lovers of travel literature. Its author, Ted Simon, narrates his four-year journey around the world covering 126,000 kilometers and 45 countries on a Triumph motorcycle.
In his journey, Simon crossed mountain ranges, jungles, deserts, and oceans. He lived with peasants and presidents, slept in prisons and palaces, and endured wars and revolutions. He experienced the depths of fear, the peaks of euphoria and the rewards of love.
