AFTER three years walking around the globe, Spaniard Nacho Dean has returned home.

Quitting his job as a lifeguard, Malagueno Dean totted up 33,000 kms documenting climate change as he went.

Taking in four continents and 31 countries Dean becomes the first Spaniard to walk around the world.

Chased by men with machetes in Mexico, mugged at knife point in Peru and arrested in Iran for taking a selfie, Dean said his journey was about spreading the word of climate change.

“It was always a dream that I had, to walk around the world,” he said.

“I needed to launch an environmental message for the care of nature and planet earth, and the most savage way to demonstrate my commitment was to walk.”

He added: “There were some scary moments along the way but the most enriching part of my journey was the people I met.”
