40 trips in 25 years. There is no other country but America that feels like home to Dirk Rohrbach. He traveled ten thousands of miles on foot, by canoe, by bike and in his ’74 Ford truck Loretta. Now Dirk takes off as “highway junkie”, addicted to the roads of endless expanse in small town America. He packs his bike and crosses the continent from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean – always looking for exciting stories and extraordinary people. Dirk Rohrbach also looks back to impressive encounters and intense moments in a quarter of a century of the USA. He takes his audience along on a trip through a country whose schizophrenia makes him despair from time to time, however, a land that keeps on inspiring him. HIGHWAY JUNKIE, his new project, is a very personal tribute to his life on the road that makes you want to grab your backpack right away and look for the unknown.
Dirk Rohrbach is traveler, doctor and journalist. With his award winning life shows he is one of the best known and most successful speakers in German speaking countries. His books YUKON and AMERICANA were published by Malik/National Geographic.
