Meet Jason Lewis – Environmental Adventurer
Jason Lewis was 26, broke and cleaning windows when he and a college friend decided to embark on an adventure around the world using only human power. No engines, planes or no sails allowed.
No-one had ever circumnavigated the earth under their own steam before.
He set off with fellow adventurer Stevie Smith from Greenwich, London in July, 1994 to travel round the globe (Expedition 360).
Originally the trip was expected to last three and a half years, but Jason and his friend Stevie Smith had little experience with this type of travel They were about to start an adventure of a lifetime that took more than 13 years.
By July 2007 Jason had traveled over 60,000 km (37,000 mi). He finally ended his expedition on the sixth of October 2007 having traveled 74,842 km (46,505 mi)
I think this quote epitomises the Jason Lewis approach
Once in a while it really hits people that they don’t have to experience the world in the way they have been told to – Alan Keightley
A journey of great courage and determination … I believe it is important in our era of cars, trains and aeroplanes that we are reminded what human beings can achieve using their own strength and resources. ~ His Holiness The Dalai Lama
