    This is an amazing report about a German couple who set off in 1989 to drive through Africa for 18 months. 23 years later he is still going at the age of 75 and his vehicle has not yet broken down

    I hope he is writing his memoirs Grin

    Must be very wealthy to do that for 23 years, but surely after a time you would get fed up of travelling, even though you are going through different countries.

    Having been backpacking for over 2 years, I got tired of always moving on and living out of a rucksack and that is one reason I came home. And maybe part of that was because I knew I would always have to go back and get a job? Having met many long-term travellers I can see how it becomes a way of life, though. And once you get into the routine, money can go a long way in most parts of the world.
