a 26 year long road trip

Gunther
215 countries and over 900.000 kilometers.

77 year old Gunther Holtorf has just arrived back in Berlin after finishing his road trip of the world which he set out to undertake with his wife and car named “Otto” 26 years ago.
After the fall of the Berlin wall Gunther and his recently passed away wife decided on a, what was going to be 18-month trip through Africa, but turned out to be one of the longest known road trips of modern times.

This video was taken two years ago on the last leg of his journey.
