A ramble through the hills and a corral.
The actual expedition takes place in the Black Forest. The convoy works its way along the Kinzig valley, heading upwards – and at 280 metres they are in the middle of nowhere. Finally the group finds a spot to camp: on a grassy elevation with a magnificent view. The vehicles form a corral, a camp fire is started and the barbecue gets underway. And, of course, there are stories to tell from around the world: Gunther Holtorf has plenty – at least one from every place on earth.
The others chip in with their experiences, too. Apoorva Prasad, founder of India’s Outdoor Journal, tells stories of climbing in the Himalayas. The much-travelled Katrin Lehr from travelblog viel-unterwegs gets a few tips for her next trips through South America and Africa. There are plenty of things to bear in mind when you’re travelling alone in these areas. When Holtorf tells how patiently he waited for his entry visas to North Korea and Cuba to come through, the group have even more respect for him: After all, Otto was the first car with a foreign licence plate to go to either place.
