  • Around The World In Eighty Daysby Michael Palin

    Orion Publishing Group 2010; Not Available

    The pace of this kind of travel has not much changed since Fogg set out in 1872.

Recourse to air travel, even as a convenient means of escape, was not... more...

    The cracked and fissured ice-pack offers no comfortable reassurance - no glimmer of any reward to the traveller who has made his way to the top of the world. The Arctic Ocean, known to the Victorians as the Sea of Ancient Ice, stares balefully back as we descend towards it, reflecting nothing but the question: Why?' Michael Palin's adventure begins... more...
