Michael Wigge left his hometown Berlin in June, 2010, without a penny and traveled 40,230km for 150 days through 11 countries, arriving in Antarctica in November, 2010. He hitchhiked, bartered and worked his way by ship, plane, car and foot, from Europe to Canada and the United States and then through Latin America.
迈克尔-维格于2010年6月身无分文地离开家乡柏林,在150天里行经4.023万公里,途经11个国家,于2010年11月抵达了南极洲。他一路上搭便车,进行以物易物,靠着乘船、飞机、汽车和徒步行走,从欧洲到达加拿大和美国,接着又穿越了拉丁美洲。
A series about Wigge’s project, “How to Travel the World for Free”, is airing on some Public Broadcasting Service(PBS) channels throughout May and June this year, using video he shot of his adventures.
关于维格的环球之旅的系列片《怎样免费环游世界》于今年5、6月在美国公共电视台(PBS)的一些频道播出,片中采用了他在旅途中拍摄的影像。
The 35-year-old is a travel journalist and videographer. He planned the journey for a year before starting out, collecting contacts for those who might provide help, and he also had many great ideas of saving money for this free trip.
35岁的维格是一位旅游记者兼录像师。为了这次旅行,他事先足足做了一年的功课,收集那些可能为他提供帮助的人的联系方式,并且对于这次“穷游”,他颇有省钱妙招。
At first, Wigge scrounged for food from garbage bins behind supermarkets. Then he offered to clean the floor or the shelf or wash the dishes in the restaurants in exchange for sandwiches. He found lodgings in the sofas or the backyards of those who were willing to offer help to strangers.
起初,维格会到超市后面的垃圾桶中翻找食物。后来他主动提出为餐厅扫地、整理货架、洗盘子,以此来换取三明治。他寄宿在愿意收留陌生人的家庭,在沙发上过夜,或在后院里露营。
It’s a great joy for him to work his way by ship or car. He crossed the Atlantic working on a container ship from Belgium to Canada in exchange for his passage. In Las Vegas and San Francisco, he collected tips for many strange jobs, such as offering his back as a “human sofa” for tired visitors and “pushing heavy tourists up the hills”. To get to Antarctica, he worked on a luxury cruise ship as an assistant to an expedition leader.
维格利用打工的方式“蹭船”、“蹭车”,其乐无穷。他在一艘从比利时开往加拿大的集装箱运输船上工作,换得横渡大西洋的船费。在拉斯韦加斯和旧金山,他从事过许多稀奇古怪的工作赚取小费,诸如用自己的背为劳累的游客提供“人肉沙发”、“推肥胖旅客上山”。为了到达南极,他在一艘豪华邮轮上担任了探险队长的助手。
