This is the unbelievable attempt of award-winning comedian, Michael Wigge, to travel 25,000 miles from Europe to Antarctica, without any money. Throughout his journey, Wigge immerses himself in fascinating sub-cultures, sleeps on the street with homeless people and nourishes himself with flowers.
Michael left Berlin in June and traveled for 150 days through 11 countries, arriving in Antarctica in November. He planned the journey for a year before starting out, collecting contact information for those who might provide accommodations or odd jobs, but he also relied on the kindness of strangers. With the help of over 100 people Wigge manages to acquire free food, free accommodations and free transportation for his 150-day journey across four continents and eleven countries.
This unusual travel diary combines adventure with humorous situations and insightful interviews about people's relationship with money. A must for every travel and adventure fan.
