Wish list

A few of my dream trips, if I ever get bold again. Like most keen long distance walkers this list never ends… I am becoming interested in walking across developing countries.

If you have a dream walk across a country, let me know and I’ll add it. Some of the best ideas are when people spur each other on to greatness! Or madness… 🙂

Tajikistan

Walking from Rushan on the Afghan border up the Bartang valley and across the plains to the Chinese border near Lake Karakul. Has been done on bikes and maybe walked before. Would be a tough trip.

Kyrgyzstan

From Tokmok near Bishkek, south across roads and tracks via Song-kul to Chatyr-kul.

Kosovo

Here’s some inspiration from Marie and Nil: Walking in Kosovo

Bangladesh

Walking from Rajshahi across to the border somewhere near Srimangal. I almost did this some years ago, flights were booked and everything, but I let someone talk me out of it. Hmm…

Sri Lanka

Rwanda

Either walking across like Fearghal O’Nuallain, or following the Congo-Nile trail (cycling link).

Israel

If I don’t have time to do the whole Israel National Trail, the length of the country, I will do the section from Tel Aviv to Arad and onto the Dead Sea, making it coast-to-coast/border.

West Bank

A traverse of the West bank on the Masar Ibrahim (Abraham Path)

French Guiana

Out of the box, and maybe out of the park…

Denmark

South to north on the Haeverjen ancient trail

“No more distractions. The elation of finally being alone was total. We walked straight west. I had everything I needed in the world resting comfortably on my shoulders, and the entire country waiting to be discovered.”

-Peter Jenkins (who walked across America)
