‘It was a journey of dazzling extremes. Beauty and ugliness, sophistication and squalor, unceasing urban noise and monastic tranquillity . . . This is a record of a year of wonder’

Full Circle is the diary of Michael Palin’s epic 245-day, 50,000-mile adventure around the rim of the Pacific Ocean. It’s a journey that takes him through eighteen different countries – including some of the most politically volatile and physically demanding places on Earth. Told with Michael’s trademark warmth and good humour, this is a spectacular story of high contrasts, intense drama and unmissable beauty.

His easy-going charm and passion for discovery are captivating
Daily Express
He observes shrewdly, writes wittily; laughs with, not at, the people he meets, and charmingly slips in a huge amount of information. His approach still towers above its imitators
