"Good people greatly outnumber nasty people, worldwide. There is a network that existed long before facebook, and it is the network of persons of good will, who will introduce and pass you to other persons of good will, such that you can take a friendly look around a town, a nation or the world, as you like. There is no similar network among nasty people, they are on their own, and if you know what is good for you, leave them alone." – Mike Spencer Bown

23 years of adventures spent wandering the world has led Michael Bown to visiting every country and every region on Earth, from war-torn Mogadishu to living with pygmies in the Congo, all of this giving him credence to lay claim to the title of the world’s most travelled person in human history. This is not simple. Hitchhiking, multiple arrests in foreign countries, multiple bouts of malaria. But that’s the point. It’s the willingness to endure challenge, and the kindness of the strangest of strangers that delivers the story we’re looking for.

And today we get to know Mike Spencer Bown. In this piece, we explore the time Mike's spent in solitude living in the woods and how this has prepared and conditioned him for a life of perpetual travel to everywhere on this planet.

In this episode, we get into Mike's time spent in solitude living in the woods and how that experience conditioned him to become a perpetual traveler capable of going to everywhere in the world.
