Lomas interviewed descendants of the Rhoynar living in the ruins of Chroyane. He visited Norvos and named its three bells a wonder made by man. He also visited the large cavern system a hundred leagues northwest of Norvos, and listed it as one of the seven natural wonders.
Lomas marveled at the Titan of Braavos and named the Long Bridge of Volantis as one of the wonders made by man. He also named the Palace With a Thousand Rooms in Sarnath among the man-made wonders.
Lomas passed east of the massive Bone Mountains but he did not do so by taking a ship in the Shivering Sea. Like many others, he either went through the mountain passes or by way of the Jade Gates. It is said that at the sight of the Bones, Lomas lost heart, believing he had reached the ends of the earth.
Lomas visited Yi Ti, where he was awestruck by its wealth and rich culture. Lomas also apparently visited the successor cities of the Patrimony of Hyrkoon—Bayasabhad, Samyriana, and Kayakayanaya—as he said that there are no fiercer fighters in the world than their warrior women.[N 1]
In his The World of Ice & Fire, Maester Yandel is contradictory as to whether or not Lomas visited Asshai. In his chapter on the westerlands, Yandel writes that merchants in Asshai asked Lomas about the famous gold of Casterly Rock. In the book's section on Asshai and the Shadow Lands, however, Yandel writes that Lomas never reached the eastern city.
Lomas Longstrider's writings are known to some educated Westerosi. When Tyrion Lannister was a young boy, his uncle Gerion gifted him copies of Wonders and Wonders Made by Man. Gerion had his nephew recite all of the wonders during feasts to impress family and guests, and Tyrion kept rereading his copies until they fell apart.

- It is not clear if Lomas reached Yi Ti via the sea route through the Jade Gates, and later visited these cities without having to make the dangerous journey through the Bone Mountains (because the cities are on the eastern side), or if Lomas initially "lost heart" at seeing the Bones, but subsequently steeled his nerves and pressed ahead through the mountain passes.
