About this Event:

Jason Lewis became the first person to circumnavigate the earth using human power alone. Here he tells the story of the epic journey that lasted 13 years, two months and 24 days. He tells how he survived a crocodile attack off Australia, blood poisoning in the middle of the Pacific, malaria in Indonesia and Asia,  mountain sickness in the Himalayas, and arrest for espionage on the Sudan-Egypt border. Lewis walked, cycled, swam, kayaked and rowed his way around the world. Along the way, he uses the journey to draw attention to our shared responsibility for the planet and to raise thousands of dollars for orphaned children. Lewis is a contributor to many travel books and magazines.
