Raised in London by a German mother and a Romanian father, Ted Simon found himself impelled by an insatiable desire to explore the world. It led him to abandon an early career in chemical engineering to go to Paris where he fell into journalism.

On 6th October 1973, at the age of 42, Ted set off from London on a 500cc Triumph Tiger motorcycle on what became a four year solo journey around the world, covering 64,000 miles through 45 countries.

"Simon's account of the journey is so wholly involving, so personal and so immediate, I could swear I had ridden pillion every mile of the way" - Sunday Telegraph.

"A very enjoyable book. The look inside the authors head as he travels the globe is as interesting as the world he describes." - Goodreads.
