    Pole to Pole This book is my favourite from the Michael Palin Travel books - although I love them all. Fantastic descriptions of the locations he and the BBC visited, colourful description of scenery architecture and the descriptions of the people he meets during .

Similar to my reaction to Michael Palin's other work, "Around the World in Eighty Days," I found Pole to Pole to be a truly entertaining book, and one I was itching to get back to reading every second it was out of my hands. There are moments of humor, frustration, bewilderment and also of history- within a few short weeks of having pass /5().
