Michael Wigge is on an adventure of a lifetime. The reporter and
journalist has traveled to many countries before, but this time he
decided to make it more challenging: he would travel twenty-five
thousand miles around the world by foot, bus, train, ship, and
plane and not spend any of his own money.
The journey was full of challenges: What would he eat? Where
would he sleep? How would he get from place to place? Every day,
those questions occupied his thoughts, but he always came up with
creative solutions. He tried dumpster diving, eating flowers, couch
surfing in the homes of strangers, sleeping under the stars,
working on a container ship to cross the Atlantic Ocean, offering
to pillow fight strangers for a dollar, and after 150 days, he
reached his destination. For this, Elite World Records named him
the First Person to Travel the World Penniless, and the documentary
he filmed about this trip won best feature in the 2011 Accolade
As much a guide as a travelogue, "How to Travel the World for
Free" will give readers ideas for alternative ways of traveling and
will inspire many to go on new adventures. This book is full of
surprises, some more pleasant than others. Nevertheless, it's a
journey you won't want to miss Traveling can be expensive--why not
do it for free?
