Gunnar Garfors, Tay-young Pak and Øyvind Djupvik managed to beat the record of 17 countries by travelling through 19 nations inside a 24 hour period, Norway’s daily The Local reports. Making their way from Greece to Lichtenstein, the trio passed through Bulgaria, Macedonia, Kosovo, Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovenia, Austria, Hungary, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Germany, Holland, Belgium, Luxembourg, France and Switzerland. Garfors said that there was a little time left over, and perhaps they could have squeezed Italy in, but the weather was not favourable.
Most of the trip was made in a rental car, with plane flights only from Skopje to Macedonia, and Vienna to Düsseldorf. The trio said that they are planning to celebrate their world record now for 24 hours.
