    This was my first book.

     Yes, it’s  about my dream trip  all around around our planet!

The earth’s maximum circumference is 26,000 miles. I traveled nearly 37,000 and I even crossed the Equator. Every continent except the North and South Poles.

I started with my good friend, Keith. But soon he dropped out. I was shocked. And that’s why I yelled, “Dammit!”

How, how could I go on all alone? Not easy. But I did it. .I made it! Yes, what a grand, magnificent adventure!

You’ll enjoy my book whether you’re a contented armchair traveler, or yearning to get up and go yourself.

    I also created for it what I call its Companion Photo Show. It gives you HUNDREDS OF PHOTOS not available in the book! All in color. I describe each one in my own voice. It’s available in CD and DVD editions, your choice.

   There are separate photos for each place I went to. Read the book, enjoy the Photo Companion!

    This one tells you about my next big adventure!

   Here’s how it happened. I had  to go to Shanghai for the kick-0ff of the Chinese edition of my Around the World book (the book above this one).

That done, I took off on a swing of fabulous cities in eight exotic countries.  I was lucky–my sister  Lucie came along! What a good companion. Soon she had to fly home. What to do? I went on alone. Daunting. But I made it!

I had hoped it would be a great trip. It turned even better than I hoped, even with all the challenges and difficulties. Read it and you’ll see why. You’ll also learn a lot. Much of it useful and very worthwhile.
