In Pole to Pole we join Michael Palin on the second of his epic challenges. Travelling from the North Pole to the South Pole, he experiences every extreme the globe has to offer. As he crosses 16 countries by train, truck, raft, Ski-Doo, barge, balloon and bicycle, he meets a diverse range of fascinating characters and landscapes while his own endurance is tested to the limit. With his customary aplomb, he plunges himself into the local cultures, starring in a crayfish documentary in Novgorod, attending a baby-rolling ceremony at a Cypriot wedding, and consulting an Mpulugu witch-doctor.

Really enjoyed listening to Micheal Pllin reading the book with enthusiasm and compassion. It brought ack lots memories of Africa, particularly Egypt, Kenya and Tanzania.

I would strongly recommend it to those enjoy travelling and yet are not to do so because of ill health like me.
