Gunther stayed in the country from April to May to complete the Philippine leg of Otto’s Round-The-World Record Tour. His tour of the Philippine archipelago started towards the southern region, where he hopped from island to island in Visayas and Mindanao via a RORO (roll-on/roll-off).
The trip down south included visits to famous tourist destinations like Mt. Apo, Mt. Mayon, Taal Volcano, Bohol and Puerto Galera. He also continued his tour to other Mindanao provinces like Zamboanga, Cotabato and even ARMM.
To wrap up his Philippine expedition, Gunther drove Otto all the way up to Northern Luzon, where he and Otto trekked the Bontoc-Sagada-Banaue area and visited other provinces in the region.
“I really enjoyed my stay in the Philippines. Apart from the beautiful scenery and the rich culture, what made my trip here worthwhile is the warm hospitality of the people I met along the way. The Filipinos are very friendly and are always willing to lend a hand. Now I know why ‘It’s more fun in the Philippines’,” Gunther shares.
After the Philippine leg, Gunther is planning to continue his Round-The-World Record Tour in Japan.
