I'm a first time globe trotter and am planning a trip from europe to the far east. I will be hiking most of the way and will be passing through quite a few countries. Can anyone tell me if there are any countries i should avoid?

Why on EARTH would any one want to avoid Kenya?

What about the Yemen?

Don't know what route you're planning but I think Algeria should be on the list of countries to avoid and I'd go around Afghanistan not through it.

I would LOVE to visit Yemen but I think it's too dangerous right now. The place has always facinated me.

If you're hiking from Europe to the far east and you pass through Kenya, You're LOST .

If you are going to go to country that may be a bit dodge, do your best not to stand out, show you have money etc... That would attract unwanted attention for shizzoo.
