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 subcultures, sleeps on the street with homeless people and nourishes himself with flowers. With the help of over 100 people Wigge manages to acquire 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 situations and insightful interviews about people’s relationship with money. A must for every travel and adventure fan … EXTREME BACKPACKING! More information is available on Michael's  website .
