Riding High is packed with untold episodes from the Jupiter journey of Ted Simon's book Jupiter's Travels: his confrontations with a murderous military in Chile, his farcical arrest in India, bizarre customs in Thailand and Malaysia, his hilarious entanglements with a bottle of bad Dubonnet in Ecuador, and many more. Simon contrasts them with the touching and turbulent events that followed his return to domesticity, and explains what became of him in 'life after travel.'

Refreshingly self-revealing, Ted Simon is an honest broker for the truth of his own experience. Delightful reading. A captivating sequel to his first triumph, Jupitor's Travels, this book fills in the details so well. It captures Simon's interior journey which occured during his 4 years on the road and afterwards. There were so many questions when his first book ended, and they are nicely addressed in his second. I'd love to spend a week listening to this guy's take on a milliion things...
The first half is a little slow, but hang in there. By the time you finish it, it will be well worth it. He has a beautiful approach to tying the adventure together with his life after. Better written than his first book.
Love it, can't get enough of Simon and his travels, really does temp you to leave everything and ride off on a motorcycle.
