How To Travel The World For Free (PBS)

This is the unbelievable attempt of award-winning comedian Michael Wigge to travel 25,000 miles from Europe to Antarctica, without any money. On his journey he immerses himself in fascinating subcultures, sleeps on the street with homeless people and nourishes himself with flowers. With the help of over 100 people Wigge manages to aquire free food, free accommodation and free transportation for his 150 day journey across four continents and eleven countries.

This unusual travel diary combines adventure with humorous circumstances and insightful interviews about people’s relationship with money. A must for every travel and adventure fan

How To Barter For Paradise

Join Wigge on a wild ride as he trades an apple for a house in forty-two exchanges.

Most people like to travel in comfort: they stay in fancy hotels, never leave popular tourist spots, and stay away from the locals. Michael Wigge isn’t like most people, however. After traveling the world without money for 150 days (while writing How to Travel the World for Free), he embraced his next challenge: turning an apple into a house in Hawaii.

Fifty States of Wigge

Michael Wigge travels all 50 states in 50 days and faces 50 incredible challenges.

Forty-eight of these 50 states will be traveled by camper van, across 14,000 miles of road. This will mean not sleeping very much. Be prepared for a 60-minute sprint challenge from the top to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, a challenge to finally touch Donald Trump at his Trump Rally, a German challenge regarding the 50 million Americans with German heritage, and a weight loss challenge in Colorado, America’s least obese state. You will see Wigge in Florida trying to figure out what a swing state is—and watch as he learns the trumpet in New Orleans and tries to find diamonds in the crater of diamonds in Arkansas.
