Babis Bizas (born Charalampos Bizas; 16 September 1954) is a travel writer, explorer, geographer, and the most traveled man on Earth.[1][2] He was born in Arta, Epirus, Greece.[3] He participated in an expedition to the North Pole in May 1996. Almost 18 years later, in December 2014, he landed in the South Pole, becoming that way probably the only one Greek to have visited both Poles.[4][5] By 2004 Bizas had visited all 194 sovereign countries of the world at that time. He is currently a member of the RGO (Russian Geographic Society) Русское географическое общество.[6][7]
