Germany by Scooter

I'll be teaching German 1 again this fall, which means I get to introduce my students to Germany by Scooter!  

Germany by Scooter is a video series made in 2013 by Deutsche Welle, in which reporter Michael Wigge attempts to cross Germany from North to South by scooter in 80 days.  He chats with people he meets and stops at some of the less well-known sights in Germany along the way.  Each video is about 5 minutes long, and it's a light and humorous introduction to Germany geography and culture.  I like to use if for a quick break between classroom activities and a lead-in to cultural topics.  

Does he make it all the way in 80 days?  You'll have to watch to find out.
