About the Author
Simon Pridmore is a professional scuba diver and itinerant writer. He is the author of a number of scuba diving and travel guides and lives, writes and plots further adventures in Bali, Indonesia.
Why the title “Under the Flight Path”? Simon used to work in colonial Hong Kong, flying back and forth frequently between Europe and Asia. He would gaze out of the window at the landscapes he was passing over and dream of doing the trip overland some day. At the time, political issues meant that independent travel through the countries he was passing over was impossible. Then the world changed.

But there has been no other Halliburton.
And yet, Under the Flight Path took me to that place. Those mysterious, magical, mystical places.
I have traveled but not to the places Mr. Pridmore writes of. I have lived in some pretty exotic places.
But I was sucked into Mr. Pridmore's journey. I mean, how cool is that anyway? To travel overland to your new home. 9000 miles for gosh sakes!!!! Thru some very rugged geography. Under some very rugged conditions.
This book is being passed around now to friends. I hope I get it back. But if I don't I will certainly buy another copy.
And to the author, Mr. Pridmore; please move again and travel overland. I am anxious to share your next amazing journey.
The writing is so entertaining and so full of cute observations.It only did not get the fifth star for I missed some more photos and detailed maps....but the author told me he is already providing new photos to go with the reading....
Waiting for his next essay on his incredible travels in asia!
