Michael Palin packs his bags in this sequel to his round the world in 80 days adventure. This time his journey takes him from the North Pole to the South Pole, in as direct a route as possible, taking him through the eastern part of Africa. Written by
Only a few days after Palin and crew left the Soviet Union, the "Generals' Coup" that arrested Gorbachev and led to the dissolution of the Soviet Union and the rise of Boris Yeltsin took place, while Palin was still on a Soviet-registered passenger ship crossing the Black Sea. See more »
This is a superb follow-up to "Around The World In 80 Days" in which Michael Palin travels from the North Pole to the South Pole. There is no time limit on this journey, (it lasts over 200 days), but there are still things that can very definately go wrong. Palin's sharp wit and informative nature is on show once more, and the sites ranging from Finland to South Africa are as stunning as you would expect.
I highly recommend this to fans of other travel series.
