In "Around the World in 80 Days" we join Michael Palin on the first of his great adventures. Following in the footsteps of the fictional Phileas Fogg, he makes real the journey which author Jules Verne imagined more than a century earlier. From the opulence of the "Orient Express" to the lurching progress of an Egyptian camel, from the hot and lively streets of Madras to the lofty heights of a hot-air balloon over Colorado, there is never a dull moment in this hilarious account of a journey full of surprises. "Around the World in 80 Days" is essential reading for every would-be traveller. Writing in his characteristically engaging and witty style, Palin paints a vivid picture of the people and places around him, reinforcing his reputation as one of the world's favourite travel writers. 'His easy-going charm and passion for discovery are captivating.' - "The Daily Express". 'Palin recounts the journey charmingly in daily diary entries. Beautifully illustrated, the book shows the programme's virtues, such as Palin's enthusiasim and naturalness.' - "The Observer".
