A team of four travelers – Yvo Kuhling (Netherlands), Liselott Martynenko Agerlid (Sweden), Philomena O'Brien (Australia) and Todd Hepworth (Australia) traveled to 17 countries in 23 hours, 30 minutes.
They visited Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Serbia, Hungary, Romania, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Austria, Slovenia, Italy, Germany, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, France, Luxembourg, Belgium and The Netherlands.
The trip began at Samac in Bosnia and Herzegovina on June 1, 2012 at 20:43. In each country the team got out of the car to step foot in the country and take a couple of photos. A cracking playlist and in-car menu kept the team's morale high throughout the attempt.
A GPS tracker recorded the trip at around five minute intervals and included each country as well. Learn more about the feat here.
