AN AMAZING WALK School textbooks are full of stories about Columbus and Magellan and their journeys across the world. Perhaps Dave Kunst should be in there too. On June 20th, 1970, Dave and his brother John left their home in Minnesota on foot, with their mule, Willie Makeit. On October 5th, 1974, Dave returned home after walking all the way round the world. But, was he the first person to do this? George Schilling walked from 1897 to 1904 but no one is sure if he walked the whole way or not. Dumitru Dan, from Romania, certainly walked around the world between 1911 and 1923 but he had to stop for several years because of the First World War. Dave was the first person to complete the whole walk in one journey and that’s why he is the most famous of the three. Dave walked a total of 23,255 km through 13 countries. To start, Dave and John walked east to New York and then flew across the Atlantic to Lisbon in Portugal. From there, they walked across Europe, into Turkey where they entered Asia. In Afghanistan, bandits attacked the two brothers with guns. Sadly, John was badly shot and died and Dave spent four months in hospital recovering. When he was better, his other brother, Peter, came to join him and they continued into Pakistan and the famous Khyber Pass. They crossed India to Calcutta and from there crossed the Indian Ocean to Australia. They had to leave Willie Makeit behind because animals can’t enter Australia but, when they arrived in Perth, the Australians gave them a new mule. Halfway across Australia, Peter had to return home to work and Dave was alone but he soon met a school teacher called Jenni who travelled with him all the way to Sydney. Dave said goodbye to her there and took his final flight to California. From there it was an ‘easy’ 2,500 km home on his own! The story has a happy ending. Soon after he finished the walk, Dave returned to Australia and, a year later, he and Jenni got married.
