Ever had a long drive back home, let’s say a thousand kilometre drive. Many of us know the feeling of the never-ending drive home. Despite a few pit stops along the way, you arrive at your destination tired after what seems a doubly long day. But what if you did it on foot? People might call you crazy, but what an adventure it would be. Imagine doing this 40 times over! Insane, maybe? That’s exactly the circumference of the earth: 40,075 kilometres.
It will take years and years to complete all the continents. This is such a long time, so many things can influence my proposed route: war, visa problems, unsafe regions due to politics, environment, or technological disasters, viruses….. As a result, I’ve decided to plan just one continent ahead. During each continent, I will choose the next continent to follow. Until I’ve crossed all continents except Antarctica. This will be such a big and difficult expedition that I’ll have to prepare myself for at least a year. But that’s all future talk. First, I’m gonna walk around the world, starting with just the first six continents.
