William Lithgow (traveller and author)

William Lithgow (1582 1645), traveller, writer and alleged spy, born at Lanark, South Lanarkshire, Scotland, claimed at the end of his various peregrinations to have tramped 36,000 miles on foot.

Prior to 1610 he had visited Shetland, Switzerland, and Bohemia. In that year he set out for Palestine and Egypt. His next journey, 1614 16, was in Tunis and Fez; but his last, 1619 21, to Spain, ended unfortunately in his apprehension at Malaga and torture as a spy.

He also visited Crete.http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=rVxpejZBJqAC&pg=PA55&lpg=PA55&dq=%22william+lithgow%22+crete&source=bl&ots=_xBXT1H1v5&sig=kqADADXHFpOwu9EiNCHZuejo6CM&hl=en&ei=Z5vATveCK4Lg8AOBmYCpBA&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=1&ved=0CDAQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q&f=false
