In 2008, Gunnar Garfors had visited a total of 85 different countries.
It was at that point 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.
