I recently read a little about Gunther Holtorf and his wife Christine who in the 80s decided to set out on a road trip of Africa for 18 months. Gunther is still travelling over 24 years later! Sadly his wife passed away from cancer in 2010 but Gunther vowed to keep travelling. Shunning technology and still driving the same Mercedes 4WD (named Otto!) they set off in, he has travelled through 215 countries. In his 70s he recently finished his travelling and returned to Germany.

We recently fitted out the back of our van so that we can have more overnight road trips in comfort. It is my dream to eventually travel more of our great country and overseas just like Gunther did. For now I am enjoying exploring closer to home :)
