For 26 years German Gunther Holtorf was traveling around the world with Otto - a vehicle he refers to as "part of my family." This week he returned to Berlin - as nothing less but a winner.


It was supposed to be an 18-month long adventure in Africa, but has become a lot more than that. 76 year old Gunther Holtorf from Gottingen decided to leave everything behind 26 years ago. He quit his job at Lufthansa and hit the road in a journey that took him around the world.
