You didn't inlcude the message you are referring to, but this seems to 
go to me.

Yes, this is true. But the text does not refer to him crossing the sea, 
{chIq} which implies just getting from A to B. What he says is like 
travelling all over the place.

It's like a US american saying that he has not seen the entire country. 
Traveling the country is something different from flying form NY to LA.

And {vergh} dos not work, because that's going trough a door, not an ocean.

That's why I suggested {lengchu'}, maybe using a different word, but 
this hits the point.
