Gloriously luminescent, but always self-deprecating. Simon's physical powers are diminishing, but his writing just gets better. The wonderful portraits of the people he encounters, often redolent of Bruce Chatwin, are sometimes so enticing that, were this a movie, you'd swear they were a plant for later on (OBSERVER)
This book has barely left my side in the past few days. It is, by turns, sad, funny and immensely uplifting (TELEGRAPH)

Once again Ted gives only snippets of his life outside the trip keeping our curiosity raw.a truly original thinker and writer with strong humanitarian values. Can we have an auto- biography Ted? Other books are in my previous reviews and I thoroughly recommend the following. The Old GloryThe Riddle of the Sands
If you enjoyed the original you'll certainly enjoy the sequel. Although Ted has aged quite a bit since the first book and doesn't really get into as many adventures as he did the first time around.
I couldn't help but think that even though I enjoyed it, Ted should maybe have let someone else experience the journey instead of going for a second time.
