Thursday evening 6th October saw the launchof the TED SIMON FOUNDATION at Coventry Transport Museum. I attended and sat there with 100+ other like minded travellers and wanna-go's (not wanna-be's).
The concept of TSF is for those who have had some success within the world of media, travel writing and publishing within the 'Round the World' genre, to help other travellers get their message out in into the world. Sixteen 'Jupiters Travellers' have already been selected from around the world, and we will see just what the TSF can do.
Jupiters Travellers some have been, some are going, watch this space.
Search the web and www.facebook.com/thetedsimonfoundation for more details.
If you have not read Jupiter Travels or Jupiter Returns, then you should.
Ted Simon and I enjoy a tipple before the start.
Also there on the night. Sam Manicom, Lois Pryce, Austin Vince, Paddy Tyson and many well know names from the RTW world.
