When I get stuck in traffic on the way to work sometimes I find it a bit burdensome. This 74-year-old has been driving across the planet, non-stop, for 26 years! Gunter Holtorf is easily the world’s greatest traveler.
In all those years this guy has gone 550,000 miles and visited 177 countries. Talk about an epic road trip!
You’re probably wondering why you haven’t heard about this guy. It’s because he doesn’t do it for fame, money, or accolades. He does it for old fashion reasons, such as, you know…he enjoys it!
Oh, and he’s done this trip in the same car. He calls his car Otto, and it’s packed with food. He lives out of it, keeping costs low by not eating out and staying in hotels. I’ll have to remember this trick next time I go traveling.
Watch the video to learn more about this fascinating human, and to see his amazing photo journal.
Whats the longest road trip you’ve ever done? Does it beat 550,000 miles?
