    Default Jupiter's Travels

    Not much work on a Friday afternoon in office and i start to watch Long Way Round on youtube as i missed many episodes in between, especially the ones where they are in Mongolia and just saw this person whom they met who actually is an inspiration for their trip. Dont know if this has been posted before but i thought would be good info for people who like reading and watching travel documentaries.
    Ted Simon is a British journalist born in Germany in 1931. Simon began travelling around the world on a Triumph Tiger 500 cc motorcycle. For four years he travelled over 64,000 miles (103,000 km) through 45 countries. Most accounts from his trip are detailed in his book, Jupiter's Travels,[1] while some of the book's gaps are filled in its second part, the book "Riding High".[2]
    His book later inspired the actors Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman in their journey from London to New York on motorcycles (Long Way Round), where they arranged to meet Simon in Mongolia.
