In an epic journey that spanned more than 13 years and 46,505 miles (74,408 km), Jason Lewis ended where he started, at the Prime Meridian in Greenwich, England. This made him the first human to circle the world fueled by nothing other than his own power. Lewis walked, biked, pedaled boats, skated and didn't even use sail power to cross bodies of water, paddling instead. He set out on the journey in 1994 with his friend, Stevie Smith, who wasn't able to complete the challenge. Lewis made it back to his starting point this Saturday, satisfied that he had spent over a decade seeing the world quite literally on his own two feet.
