Ted Simon - Pacific NW - April dates, 2008
Just wanted to let everyone know that Ted Simon is planning a series of talks later this month about his motorcycle trips around the world. You can find more details on his website Jupitalia - The World of Ted Simon and Jupiter's Travels
but in short, he will be in:
Vancouver, BC - April 19
Seattle, WA - April 22
Portland, OR - April 23
Eugene, OR - April 24 and
Arcata, CA - April 26.
I have just finished reading Ted's book Jupiter's Travels
about his first trip in the mid-70's and meeting him is a must-do event. Truly one of the most inspiring and insightful books I have ever read. It certainly zoomed in on all the joys, fears and doubts any of us have when planning and going on such a trip for the first time. Ted repeated his trip 25 years later, and that trip is the subject of a later book. I think he will be talking about how the world changed in the period between his fist and second trips. I'd like to hear that.
Anyway, just thought I'd pass it on as I only found out about the talks by visiting his website.
