«BorderXing Guide»

Heath Bunting's «BorderXing Guide» Web site primarily consists of documentation of walks that traverse national boundaries, without interruption from customs, immigration, or border police. The work comments on the way in which movement between borders is restricted by governments and associated bureaucracies.
