Most Traveled Man
Since publishing The Most Traveled Man on Earth in 2006, Lew hasn’t stopped cruising and traveling. The stories below describe some of his adventures at sea, his search for the legendary “green flash” and the even rarer “blue flash,” tips on snorkeling, how to get cruise bargains and how to avoid sea-sickness, and mini-biographies of some fascinating cruising personalities. 

Lew also gives you tips on how to prepare for a cruise, how to organize a cheap last minute “distressed” cruise, how to avoid the dreaded “single supplement” and the even more dreaded “norovirus,” and how to make your cruise tell a beautiful story!
