Editorial Reviews

It is apparently possible for a person to travel from Berlin to Antarctica without any money at all. Just ask Michael Wigge, author of How to Travel the World for Free: One Man, 150 days, 11 countries, No Money! Simultaneously droll and exuberant, Stephen Bel Davies keeps the listener curious and bemused as they listen to the true story of Wigge’s adventure. From street performance to dumpster diving, from container ships to couch surfing, this pleasantly self-aware fool’s journey is fresh enough to keep the listener wondering what’s around the next bend.

Publisher's Summary

The unbelievable feat of traveling 25,000 miles - from Berlin to Antarctica - without any money! Join Michael Wigge as he immerses himself into fascinating subcultures, rides with Amish farmers in old-fashioned buggies, sleeps on the street with the homeless, and, with the help from alternative lifestylers, learns to nourish himself with flowers. Wigge had only three concerns during his travels: How do I get some food? How will I get to my next destination? Where can I sleep? …all without money! This unusual travel diary combines adventure with humor and contains surprising revelations about when money is really needed - and when it's not. A must-listen for every travel and adventure fan!

How to travel the world for free (If you're a man)

What did you like best about How to Travel the World for Free? What did you like least?

The concept of the book is great, the adventures he goes on are interesting. However, a lot of this would be dangerous if a woman were to do it (unfortuantely). Because of this, I didn't find the book very useful. There's no way I'd hitchhike with strangers or walk alone in certain countries at night.

A Bit Disappointing

Any additional comments?

I found the cultural references and descriptions in this book interesting. What turned me off was the author's "Uber" Western attitude. Why would you agree to take a multicultural trip around the world, and then critique and complain about all the cultures you visit?! Deal, Dude! It's free! The bus-driver in Chile wouldn't keep driving that way if it weren't somewhat successful?! The author should have relaxed into his experiences a little more and focused on the learning aspect. He also took an overly professorial tone when he described Black jack, and Niagara Falls, in detail--like the educated people who read these types of books need those things VERY carefully described. I read Mr. Wigge's next book in the series , about bartering (actually before this one), and it is better.
