London, Britain, October 6, 2007—British adventurer Jason Lewis moors his 26-foot (7.9 meter) yellow pedal craft at the Meridian Line in front of the Royal Naval College in Greenwich, England, after completing a 13-year circumnavigation of the globe.

Lewis began his journey in 1994 and traveled 46,000 miles (74,000 kilometers) around the world on a bicycle, a pedal boat, a kayak and inline skates, the Associated Press reported.

During his journey Lewis was hit by a car in the U.S., capsized in the Atlantic, and was arrested as a suspected spy in Egypt.
