Gunther and Christine Holtorf started a 18th month road trip in 1989 that turned into a 23 year road trip around the world in their 1988 Mercedes Benz G-Wagen named Otto. That looks like it would be amazing! Although I'm not sure I could do it for 23 years....

I'm inspired by Gunther and Christine Holtorf: the German couple embarked on a road trip to Africa in 1989 and kept going through 23 years, 200 countries, and 500,000 miles... with one car!
One couple's epic 550,000 mile, 177 country, 26 year road trip, and its bittersweet ending #travel #roadtrips #roadtrippers This is simply beautiful. Quite inspiring to always travel and always photograph in my life. :)

In 1989, Gunther and Christine Holtorf climbed aboard their '88 Mercedes Benz G-Wagen and traveled on a road trip that has lasted 23 years, spanned more than 200 countries and 500,000 miles.
In 1989, Gunther Holtorf and his wife Christine climbed aboard their 1988 Mercedes Benz G-Wagen to travel from Germany to Africa, where they planned to complete a once-in-a-lifetime road trip that would last 18-months.Except the trip didn’t last 18-months, it has lasted 23 years, spanned more than 200 countries and the G-Wagen now has 800,000 kilometers, or 500,000 miles, on its odometer. That’s the equivalent of 20 times around the equator.

El Hotel del Salto Tuquendama, Colombia 34 Abandoned But Beautiful Places. Something about abandoned places, the mystery.Trying to imagine at what point it was abandoned, using traces of evidence. To see things left in places, knowing, someone at one time put that there. Takes my breath away.
The luxurious Hotel del Salto opened in 1928 to welcome wealthy travelers visiting the Tequendama Falls. In the early 90's the hotel closed due to the contamination of the Bogata river lessening interest in the 515ft waterfall. There are now plans to convert the abandoned hotel into a museum. http://desertedplaces.blogspot.com/2012/08/the-haunted-hotel-at-tequendama-falls.html
Deserted Places: The Haunted Hotel at Tequendama Falls - is about 30km southwest of Bogota, Colombia. Many stop by to visit the 515 ft tall waterfall and area surrounding the abandoned Hotel del Salto. It opened in 1928 but when tourism started to die off

In 1924, the then-luxurious Hotel Refugio del Salto was inaugurated on the cliff facing Tequendama Falls on the Bogota River, Columbia but due to contamination of the river water, believed to be a result of the popular locale, it was closed in the early 90′s. Now its a small museum and tourist attraction for those who want to check out this creepy abandoned building, said to be haunted by ghosts of former patrons who fell to their death.
Beautiful Abandoned Places #7 El Hotel Del Salto in Colombia This beautiful abandoned hotel is now a major tourist attraction. It opened in 1928 off the edge of a cliff to have a breath taking view of Tequendama Falls. Since it was off the edge of a cliff, it was not uncommon for people to commit suicide. It is now known for its astonishing view, history, and haunted back story. To this day, people claim to see silhouettes of people in the fog and mist.
