Up for a walk that will take you at least 15 months? Cape Town, South Africa to Magadan, Russia.

After some poking around, I’ve found the longest walk that can be mapped with Google Maps. From Cape Town, South Africa to Magadan, Russia– 22,077 km, 13,718 miles, it would take you an estimated 4,365 hours. So if you’re walking an average of 10 hours a day, it would only take you 436 days, or about 15 months. That’s if you could average 10 hours a day, which is doubtful. Oh, and it would also take you through some of the most inhospitable places in the world. War zones, places where they hate Americans and all kinds of other hazards. Hell, I doubt I’d make it out of Cape Town without a scratch, let alone South Sudan, Sudan, Palestine, Syria and all of southern Russia. Even if you tried to veer south when you hit Asia, it would still take you through Iraq, Iran, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan and China. But…if you’re up for a really long walk and a change of scenery, there you are.
