23-year road trip, one car

by Volker Weber

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.

800.000 km! 23 Jahre! In der Zeit ist der Longlife-Mäusekino-Rechner in meinem Auto sicherlich drei Mal zu Asche zerfallen...

This one made the rounds a couple of days ago: Volvo P1800S with millions of kms/mls.

Has seen better roads than the one above, though.

It's sad that his wife is no longer here, even so Gunther is a very lucky man to have the time and resources to undertake such a "trip". Such an amazing story.

Wow. Just wow.

Erinnert mich an "die Unumkehrbaren".
