Summary

Following the hugely popular and successful Around the World in 80 Days and Pole to Pole, Michael Palin set off to meet another challenge: an anti-clockwise circumnavigation of the world's largest ocean, the Pacific. Eighteen countries border the vast expanse of sea that is the Pacific. Palin travelled through them by air, train, boat, car, and on foot, exploring some of the most beautiful landscapes on earth. As he moved through different countries he met the wonderfully diverse communities that make up their populations, many of whom lead far from ordinary lives.
Whether he's talking to head-hunters in Borneo or eating maggots in Mexico, Palin recounts his adventures in a vivid and lively style that brilliantly evokes the full colour and richness of the Pacific Rim.

Michael Palin can do no wrong in my opinion. Fabulous book and fabulous narration. Really enjoyed it. I just wish audible or the publishing company could make the audiobooks available in the unabridged versions. I feel like I am missing out with the abridged versions. I realise this would make the audiobooks more expensive, but in my opinion it would be worth it.

Very entertaining and great service from Audible once again. Easy to download and purchase. Fantastic.

Palin shares his eccentric journey. 5 stars!

A very personal account of travel insights from an accomplished observer and "experiencer" of life. He is courageous and has the gusto to share, and paint it large. Bravo, Mr. Palin! I loved it. - Carolyn Cole, San Pablo California.
