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… 🙂


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.


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



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


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


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

South Korea

There’s the Baekdu-Daegan Trail through the mountains, which appeals, or there is a new trail Haeparang Trail which traverses along the coast and looks a bit flatter for old buggers like me…

French Guiana

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