Rotary Club of Lititz Fourth Travelogue of the 2018-19 Season will feature “How to Travel the World for FREE”

 

The fourth presentation of the Rotary Club of Lititz 2018-19 Travel & Adventure Series will be held Saturday, February 9, at the Warwick High School Performing Arts Center, 301 W. Orange Street, Lititz. There are two performances: Matinee at 2:00 p.m. with a musical prelude starting at 1:30 p.m. and Evening at 7:30 p.m. with a musical prelude starting at 7 p.m.

 

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.

 

Wigge 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 accommodation and free transportation for his 150-day journey across four continents and 11 countries. During his travels, he stops in Berlin, Ohio, where Amish farmers take him in and let him sleep in their barn for a few days, and Wigge learns about the Amish lifestyle. 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 …

 

Wigge, an award-winning German TV personality, specializes in incredible challenge stories.

“How to Travel the World for FREE,” “How to Barter for Paradise” (where he turned an apple into a Hawaiian dream house by bartering for bigger, better things) and “How to Travel 2000 Miles on a Razor Scooter in 80 Days” are just three of his seven travel shows. His TV programs and books have been broadcast and published internationally in several countries.

 

Wigge has been working as a reporter and writer for 15 years, for both private and public broadcasters. A mixture of journalism and entertainment characterizes his work, his specialty lies in cultural issues, which he examines in a very entertaining way.

All of the net funds from these activities are given to over 30 non-profit service groups each year, as well as providing college loans and scholarships to many local students.  Some of the locally supported groups include four local Fire Companies, Warwick Ambulance Association, Warwick/Lititz Community Chest, Lititz Historical Foundation, Lititz Public Library, Lititz recCenter and Lititz Springs Park.  Since the Travelogue started 56 years ago, the Rotary Club of Lititz has donated well over ONE and a QUARTER MILLION DOLLARS community wide and helped over 500 students attend college.  The money raised this past year, which grossed over $125,000, is now being distributed to these many community and charitable focused groups and students.
