Given the challenges you encounter on the longest walk, the opposition of the author to ferries is odd
I'll gladly take a ferry or two if this allows me to escape mambas, armed robberies, war zones, hippos and temperatures of minus 37 C.
It is perhaps best to consult the safety considerations that your Government publishes.

Who's up for this one? 14,334 miles / 23,068 km from L’Agulhas, South Africa, through the African continent, the Middle East, Southern Europe, and Asia before terminating near Magadan, Russia. In all, it would take 3+ years of continually walking 12+ miles daily.

Christine Thürmer is a mega distance walker - crossed North America and Europe east to west north to south, just crossed Chile and more. She’s an ultralight self contained hiker, has done all the big ones alone (APT, PCT, etc). Worth looking at her advice.

The term "longest" is inaccurate. Declarative statements should only be made with qualifying definitions. Walking via East Africa and Northern Europe would be longer.
