Russia can be pretty sketchy; however, if you'd like the stamp in your passport you could always go to Kaliningrad. It's in between Poland and Lithuania, and has alot of German and Soviet architecture. Just so you know, Kazakhstan outside of the big cities.. which im assuming you're walking through is said to be more dangerous than Russia.

Sorry, can't call it walking around the world if you have to take a plane.

Talk to my friend Jesus, he'll give you some tips!

While I admire your dedication, I find it strange that you exclude the Middle East, Africa and Russia from your itinerary yet you place Thailand, China and Argentina as your places to go to.

Not all places in the Middle East are dangerous and lots of places in Africa are extremely safe. Russia is absolutely NOT dangerous at all.

So we are officially in a bit of a silly season, and in general I stay away from the completely crazy rumors that persist on the internet, or in the case of the Leafs having interest in Nabokov or Turco I will occasionally debunk them...however, I have been getting inundated with emails, PMs, and questions on twitter regarding a few rumors that are out there...so here goes.. I will address the rumors and follow with what I have or haven't heard...If you all like this format, maybe Wacky Wednesdays could be a regular feature. I wouldn't do it more than once a week, because I am too busy talking to actual sources and attempting to provide you all with as much unique information as possible.


Too busy talking to actual sources? lolwut

Thailand is one of the safest countries in the world for tourists. Way safer than the DTES for example. Just stay away from drugs but that goes for most places.


Edit.

My brother used to walk from our home in North Van, over the Lions Gate and back home over the Ironworker's memorial bridge and we thought that was odd.

Russia is absolutely NOT dangerous at all.

Yes, yes it is. Or it can be. Especially, as mentioned, if you're a minority. Even if you're not, the police force is rather corrupt, and some like to hassle tourists, i.e. steal their passport and demand a bribe to give it back.

That being said, it's an amazing country, and well worth a visit as long as you're smart about it. And the people are generally friendly, as they are basically everywhere.

At the OP: make sure you have all your necessary Visas and such in order. Many countries require you have one to enter, and they can take weeks or months to obtain. Other than that, have fun. I wouldn't do it, but hey, all power to you.

Why not check out India and Dubai?

Go down to India and check out the Taj Mahal, along with many other places. Check out Dubai because it is a very nice place from what I have heard.

How you going to pay for this world tour? Mom and Dad got you covered?

It sounds cool to say you walked around the world but the reality of actually doing it, without a support van or anything?, is kinda a long boring haul. If its 150 miles to the next town anywhere along the way are you camping it and carrying all your food and water and walking a empty stretch of road for the better part of a week? Town after town. Week after week. Spending almost all of your time on your own in the middle of nowhere just walking.I can see taking a bus from town to town, meeting people seeing the sights, staying in their homes on those exchange deals and crossing the world that way but to walk it....

Aside from all the sarcasm in this thread, I really respect what you're doing if you're actually planning on doing it.

You've got to check out that place in South Argentina where penguins come up on the beach. I'm curious as to your budget - do you have something put aside or are you just going to tramp the entire thing?
