    Meet Mike Spencer Bown, Calgary native and most travelled man in the world.

    Has been on the road, over the water, and in the air for 23 years and he says he’s seen every single country and region the world has to offer.

    He didn’t just breeze through the airports to get his passport stamped, either. He stuck around each locale for a while getting to know the area and its people.

    Bown has made some headlines along the way. Remember that crazy tourist who showed up in war-torn Mogadishu, Somalia a couple of years ago?

    That was Mike. He wanted to see the once-legendary beautiful beaches there, making him the area’s first recreational visitor in over 20 years.

    Among the adventures he remembers most fondly is his time living in a leaf hut in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

    He went through a lot to get there, too. On the way he had to evade UN armored units and Hutu rebel fire.

    Reclining on a beach in the Seychelles also ranks high on his list of memorable moments.

    His final stop was Ireland where he celebrated his experiences and accomplishments with a pint of Guinness.
