A Road Trip that lasted 23 years: Parties for 18 months, they never returned!

Passionate travelers often have only one desire: to live all their life on the road. Gunther Holtorf and his wife Christine did not choose it, but this way of life became more obvious to them.

With the same car for 23 years

It is in 1989 that the two lovebirds leave to live a big and beautiful adventure without knowing that their trip would change their life forever.

Here they are for an 18-month journey on the African continent that will give them the desire to continue to go for miles, forgetting Germany their homeland, to become two citizens of our planet.

They have traveled our planet for 23 years!

This trip is 23 years of freedom: no bills, no address, no routine, no constraints, but a lot of love and especially endless dreams … “The more you travel, the more you see how much you have not seen much! “says the adventurer.

For the sake of traveling

Thus with a lot of passion the couple travels a total of 800,000 kilometers aboard the same vehicle, 20 times around the world! Their only ambition: where the discovery carries them and it is touching.

Christine Gunther’s wife is now dead, but she made her husband promise to continue their road trip before leaving him. The retiree is still on the road. It is hoped that it will continue for as long as “Otto”, the name of its Mercedes car, can be driven.

By happy coincidence, Gunther Holtorf met photographer Dave Lemke, whom he met earlier in Vietnam. From their exchanges was born a video that we have the pleasure to unveil.
