This Guy Visited Every Country Before He Turned 40 — Here Are the Highlights From His Journey
There are very few people who have visited every country, which makes it even more unbelievable that one man was able to do so before he turned 40! World traveler Gunnar Garfors shares his favorite moments from his journey in this post originally featured on Business Insider.
In 2008, Gunnar Garfors had visited 85 countries.
It was then that he decided to make it his mission to travel to every single country in the world — 198, to be exact.
He accomplished his goal on May 8, 2013, earning him the title of the youngest person to travel to every country. He was 37 years old.
Garfors — who works at the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK) — managed to keep his job throughout his travels; he never wanted to quit.
Instead he wanted to combine a job he has always enjoyed with travel, his greatest passion in life.
Garfor sent us the best photos from his journey around the world.
