Around The Globe With Otto, 23 Years And Counting


Gunther Holtorf, his wife, and their beloved transport, Otto, started their nomadic adventures around the globe in 1989. Captured in ‘old fashioned’ film, Gunther’s photography reveals Otto’s many stops along the trip, the miraculous landscapes and a lifelong journey still in the making.

Otto, a Mercedes Benz G Wagon has clocked more than 500,000 miles so far. Amazingly, these fortunate miles have produced almost no break downs. And their travels have all been without help from modern technologies such as cell phones or computers. The two slept in their wagon and cooked their own meals, leaving the expenditures to gas and shipping Otto to the next landmass.

Watch this inspiring slideshow on the epic, 23 year, nomadic journey still underway.
