I have to thank him for that....
I always yearned to pick one of my bikes and follow his example, even if only limited to travelling up and down the African continent.
It was fun reading his newest account of his travels in which he confirms my suspicion that the hustle at the borders, fight for visa, trouble with corrupt officials and dangerous traffic somewhat took the fun out of the travelling by road.
Maybe I have to thank him for this easy excuse, too..
I was somewhat surprised reading that Ted was not smarter when dealing with some of the officials in some of the 'unfinished countries' especially when he is chasing a schedule that involves meeting with film crews flying in from abroad. I think he would be smarter than 'p....ng off officialdom and then worry about not making the deadlines. Probably a sign that one turns grumpy when turning old.
Probably another excuse I can use...
After all, the new book is an interesting read, not much of an advice for travelers, but a confirmation for those of us who believe that we, the human race, are slowly but surely killing the planet. Since he has a first hand comparison between then and now, it is sad to see my own observations confirmed and not only for Africa.
While it's no surprise that all the places he'd remembered were vastly different it's a sad reminder that time passes and things change. To hold onto memories is to cherish them, but you need to grasp the now and make memories from what we have today.
In closing this is a must read for any one who was transported by Jupiter travels
