Jason Lewis: 13 year journey around the world on human power alone

Forwarding excerpts from an email for an event that I missed.. the story is inspiring.

[..] will be  hosting Jason Lewis on Monday 15th December 2014 from 6:30pm to 8:00pm at the Hall of Harmony, Nehru Centre Worli, Mumbai. Here goes his short profile

Jason Lewis survived one of the longest, most grueling, yet uplifting journeys in history, circumnavigating the globe on human power alone - no motors or sails. Traveling more than 46,000 miles on pedal boats, roller blades, kayaks, bikes, and his own two feet; the adventurer set off from London at the age of 26 and returned from his odyssey 13 years later. He traveled across five continents, two oceans and one sea.

He survived a crocodile attack off the Australian coast and blood poisoning in the Pacific Ocean. He was hit by a car and left for dead with two broken legs in Colorado, and incarcerated for espionage on the Sudan-Egypt border. The Dalai Lama has called it "a journey of great courage and determination."

Jason will be sharing his epic journey of extreme endurance and the triumph of human spirit.
