Gunther Holtorf's 23-Year Road Trip

Gunther Holtorf left Germany with his wife in 1989 for an 18-month tour of Africa in an old Mercedes Benz G Wagon. Once they got on the road, the couple never stopped traveling. They ignored hotels and restaurants to save money, and visited everything from Everest Base Camp to the Albuquerque Balloon Festival. After his wife died, at her request, Holtorf kept going.
