Join comedic journalist and TV personality Michael Wigge as he divulges “How to Travel the World for Free” at the next Rotary Club of Lititz Travelogue on Feb. 9.

The fourth presentation of the Rotary Club of Lititz 2018-19 Travel & Adventure Series will be held Saturday, Feb. 9, in the Warwick High School auditorium, 301 W. Orange St., There are two performances, at 2 and 7:30 p.m., with a musical prelude 30 minutes prior to each show.

The presentation features 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. 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 managed to acquire free food, accommodation and transportation. This unusual travel diary combines adventure with humorous situations and insightful interviews.

Wigge, an award-winning German TV personality, 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.

General admission tickets are sold at the door only for $7 for adults and $3 for students. Season tickets may be used daytime or evening and are $35 for adults and $12 for students. They can be purchased from any Rotary Club of Lititz member or from the Lititz Public Library.
