Portugal, Spain, Gibraltar, Spain, Morocco
Gabon, Republic of the Congo, Angola, the Democratic Republic of the Congo
Ghana, Togo, Benin, Nigeria
Paraguay, Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay
Vietnam, Laos, China, Burma
Bhutan, India, Bangladesh, India, Nepal
Pakistan, Afghanistan, China, Tajikistan
Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Israel

Realistically, these rides range from 'what a grand adventure!' to 'well, maybe, if it wasn't the rainy season' to 'don't be daft - you'd never get through those three border checkpoints in a day' to 'don't be daft - you'll get abducted, tortured, rescued, arrested, tortured and shot'.

Excellent.

I was surprised by some of those and checked... which meant that I learnt something new. : - )

Ditto.

Thank you, both.
