This almost made me cry! An epic story of a solo traveler.
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.

For a regular traveler, hotel and/or restaurants are the main costs. He and his wife sleeps in their car, OTTO, and cook their own food. I’m intrigued though how much he spends transporting OTTO from one country to another? Sadly, his wife recently passed away but to date, Gunther still continues on his journey with OTTO.
P.S. Notice his film leica cameras! :)
Yeah, well she stood up for Roman Polanski too…”it wasn’t ‘rape-rape’”—
