Gunther Holtorf’s 23-Year Road Trip

by Christopher Paul on July 26, 2012

Fascinating story of an ex-airline executive who drives around the world in his car:

“Back in 1989, as the Berlin Wall fell, Gunther Holtorf and his wife Christine set out on what was meant to be an 18-month tour of Africa in their Mercedes Benz G Wagen. Now, with more than 800,000km (500,000 miles) on the clock, Gunther is still going.”

Sadly, his wife passed away but he keeps the journey going. Thankfully, Otto – his G Class wagon – is going just as strong as he is.
