the norwegian Gunnar Garfors held a record to be the envy of any backpacker. At just 37 years old, the blogger managed to become the youngest man to visit every country in the world as a tourist. The story became a book about the saga of what it's like to know every corner of such a huge and impressive world.

Garfors said he started traveling at age 17 without his parents traveling across Europe by train stopping in 13 different countries. With the experience, a new addiction also started, that of always moving around.

But even with all the time available to travel, the financial issue is the biggest question for those who follow the website that the Norwegian created to share his adventures.

“Many people say they don't have the money (to travel), but it's all about priority and dedication. They have money, but they will need planning. In addition, it is possible to stay at someone's house for free through sites like CouchSurfing or Hospitality Club”, explained the traveler.
