Pole to Pole

Introduction

Michael Palin - Pole to PoleThere are many more people without whose help, energy and enthusiasm Pole to Pole would not have happened. Besides those already mentioned in the book, I would like very much to thank Paul Marsh, who patiently and valiantly tried to teach me Russian, Roger Saunders, Chris Taylor, Sue Pugh Tasios, Gabra Gilada, David Thomas, Alex Richardson, Jonathan Rowdon, Anne Dummett and last but not least Suzanne Webber, Suzanna Zsohar, Linda Blakemore and Julian Flanders at BBC Books.

For travel information I relied heavily on the excellent Rough Guides and the Lonely Planet series, and the Insight Guides and Martin Walker's Independent Traveller's Guide to the Soviet Union were invaluable.


NOTE ON THE TEXT

Not every single day is described. Rest days when nothing happened except laundry have been omitted out of consideration for the reader.

The word 'fixer' is often mentioned. Fixers are professional organizers whose job it was to ease our passage through their countries.
