The travel books

How I Discovered Europe and How I Discovered Africa are collections of Shimon's illustrated articles in his column in Ha'aretz between 1957 and 1960 (see Journalism), which he sent from his travels around the world. Illustrations from these two books are shown here. (read excerpts from his memoirs about his travels: Circumnavigating the globe, Africa, Dr. Schwitzer's hospital and Tokyo).
