Script Part 1. Steven describes Jason’s voyage. Steven: Welcome to Global Trek. I’m Steven Morris, and today I’m in Singapore with special guest Jason Lewis. Jason is on a round- the-world trip using just human power. He started in England and went by bicycle through Europe down to Portugal. And then across the Atlantic Ocean in a special pedal boat. Using no motors, no sails, just human power. This part of the trip took 111 days. Then Jason traveled by inline skates across the U.S., from Florida to California. The next leg of the trip, from San Francisco to Australia, was the longest part of the trip so far. San Francisco to Hawaii was 53 days, and then from Hawaii to Australia was 126 days. All in his special pedal boat, the Moksha. Then Jason traveled through Australia by bicycle and then up the Indonesian coast to Singapore by kayak. Wow, what an incredible trip!
Script Part 2. Steven interviews Jason. Steven: What made you decide to do this? Jason: Other people have gone around the world, but no one has done it this way. I wanted to be the first to do it by human power alone. Steven: Well, now we’re in Singapore. What is the route from here? Jason: Well, we’re going to go by bicycle up through Thailand, China, and India. And then work my way back to Europe. Back to my starting point in England.
Script Steven: How? Jason: By bicycle all the way to France, and then pedal boat again across the English Channel. Steven: Wow. And how long do you figure it will take you? Jason: I have no idea. When I started, I thought maybe five or six years total. But it’s been longer than that, and I’m not done yet! Steven: Any regrets? Jason: Nope, none at all. It’s been incredible. I’ve learned so much about the world and about myself. I’ve met so many great people. Steven: Well, it’s been a pleasure talking to you, Jason. Good luck on the rest of your trip. Jason: Thanks.
