I think you're going to get alot of 'Full Circle' fans out there. That's mine as well. The photo's, the stories (I got the greatest 'put down the book and laugh till I cried' moment when he talked about his shower experience in Australia...."It's Michael Palin!"), the deapth, and the sheer size of the whole undertaking. Such a fantastic adventure.
I took my copy on both of my trips to London (a life long dream for me). I'm afraid all I was able to bring back with it was the faint smell of the London Underground. Perhaps I should've pressed some flowers or dipped it in the Thames ;-).
I think it's lovely, that you're able to associate such a wonderful trip with that book. It only makes sence, to travel 'with' the travelling Python!

I have to agree - The Full Circle

I`d go for `Pole to Pole` (currently reading `Sahara`). The guy is an amazing communicator and seems to treat all whom he meets with the same amount of time, respect and genuinely interested witty warmth. All this is to be found in spades in `Pole to Pole` and I thoroughly recommend it. I`ve actually read it three times. Lol.

It's very hard for me to choose which one I like the most, they're all very well written.

But I'll say Full Circle because it made me laugh the most.

'Pole to Pole' is my favourite. 'Sahara' is a very close second.
