Ever dreamt of leaving your armchair behind and setting off on some wild adventure? Then catch this talk by Guinness World Record holder, award-winning author and explorer, Jason Lewis. The first person to circumnavigate the Earth using human power, Lewis will tell us about his extraordinary 13 year odyssey and how he covered a mind-boggling 46, 505 miles by walking, cycling and skating across land and swimming, kayaking, rowing and pedalling a boat across water.
The third and final volume of his Expedition 360 trilogy, chronicling his amazing journey, has been published this May. It follows the final section of this marathon endurance test when Jason, accompanied by American schoolteacher April, is pushed to the brink. This is a tale of survival against the odds. It is a story featuring gales, rogue waves, waterless deserts, life-threatening sea-sickness, towering mountains, modern-day pirates and extremist hotspots. It poses the question: why did Lewis do it?
