Nowadays everybody can easily travel the world on a bike. But when Ted did his trip the world was a different place. This book tells an amazing story of his adventure. And an adventure it was. No gps, internet or satellitephones existet. Ted just startet to ride motorcycles and the political stability in many countries he visited was frail. In many places there were no highways or even paved roads. His bike got banged up time after time and Ted had to find ways to fix it. Sometimes in the middle of nowhere.

This book is not comparable to reading today's travelblogs or watching LWR or LWD. Ted's writing is focused on places and people and he tells the story of his unrepeatable journey modest and calm. His book is truly refreshing compared to the selfcentered posing and bragging of many that followed his footsteps.

There is only two downsides to his book.
First: It does not include a lot of photos.
Second: After you read it, you will have no excuse for not getting on a crappy bike and travel the world.

JupiterÕs Travels stays with you long after you close the book. it is a classic travel narrative which belongs with the finest: ThesigerÕs Arabian Sands, NaipaulÕs An Area of Darkness, ChatwinÕs In Patagonia. Ted SimonÕs motto should be Carpe Diem. One day he decided to stop what he was doing to travel around the world on a Triumph motorcycle. The trip took him four years to complete. Ted shares with us his thoughts and feelings during the journey and his insights into many different cultures. What impresses me most, however, is TedÕs openness towards the people he meets and their different modes of life, and his honesty with himself and with us, his readers. Best of all, before our eyes, he grows and becomes a wiser person. He changes and so do we!

First of all I have to appologize for my bad english. It is sometimes difficult to word things right, when you are a german;) I happend to meet this book in the early 80's when it was first released in german language. Since then this book (and the following book of ted simon) was a permanent partner of myself, during my travels with my moto guzzi motorbike through europe and parts of asia. After a longer visit in hospital;), what happens when cars cause accidents with motorbikes, I bought this book and found out that it is the most impressing literature you can ever wish to read, when you are planing to go on long lasting travels, not caring if it is by bike, car or other kind of vehicle. My own experiences very often were similar to what Ted Simon had experienced. What you find is yourSELF, on the long run. Almost 20 years since I bought this book, even if it followed me on my trips for many thousand miles, with now worn off book covers, and a not so nice looking "outfit" this book still has a very special place on my bookshelf..six star rating for this book. Too bad that it is not available in german language anymore as far as i know.

I have to put in my plug if you are only considering this book. If you love adventure stories about people who REALLY do "stuff" get this. I love stories from the heart about normal people who just one day decide to do a remarkable something with their life. You will remember his "journal-type" story forever. I read this over 10 years ago. I flash back all the time on Jupiters' journey, as it was physical but went deeply into into his purpose and sense of self. Gosh, I think he meant to take us all willing to go too, WITH him by writing this like a gift. I don't think he wrote this thinking "oh I better not talk about God becasue there might be non-belivers out there who won't like me anymore". I think he wrote this as it was nessary for someone like ME to KNOW someONE was talking RISKS somewhere out in the huge world even if I wasn't. Sit back and enjoy this ride! If you like this kind of thing and it not a motorbike fixtation only,- try; In Praise Of Older Women" too. It has no Motorbikes at all, (ha!) but is a deep real entertaining and sexy story of the remarkable life of one Man reaching his own vision of life, by bumbling thu a bunch of women. Now thats a journey too. And Its just cool. If I haven't lost you yet another to look at is Iron and Silk. And I think theres even a motorbike in that one, and a few Chinese proverbs to ponder.

Ted Simon was a writer first and a motorcycle rider somewhere after that. Do not confuse this book with a mere description of places visited and how to keep a bike running. Jupiter's Travels includes some of the most insightful writing about carrying on through one's life; now hurtling, now crawling, but always with his senses fully operating and his mind delightfully able to capture and describe penetrating glimpses. Mr Simon reflects on the many ways of dealing with the variable textures of humanity, the testing of one's mettle while admitting to shortcomings, and in doing so this the book involves a greater metaphorical value, something that few so-called travel writers ever attain. Mr Simon's resourcefulness, his strategies, and his often intuitive approach to living on the road for four years will provide any reader, and particularly a prospective long-term traveler, with a book that will be remembered and perhaps even consulted in retrospect. When the boat is late and the sky is dark, when the customs people are being intransigent and the alleys seem full of bandits, when the dust becomes so thick that you can chew it -- you will find yourself wondering: how would Ted Simon deal with a time like this?
