Back in 2007, Matt decided to quit his career and leave his home in order to go and find a piece of himself.
He set off around the world with little more than a flexible ticket and bit of money he'd scraped together. Along the way Matt met some amazing people that really helped out in achieving this goal.
A year later and Matt returned to the UK a poor man in pocket, but a rich man in his heart. Memories of the people and experiences from a year on the road can always bring a smile.
After four months of beig miserable in the UK he then worked as a Holiday Rep in Greece for a summer. It wasn't the job he'd hoped for - so he made his way back to England, got a grown-up job and got stuck.
So, it's probably about time to pack the bags and have another adventure.
Matt is a fairly easy going person, although he does enjoy winding up his nearest and dearest... but I guess that is one of his cheeky charms, because he (almost) always gets away with it.
So, did travelling to 13 different countries in 4 continents in 1 year change Matt? and if so, did it change him for the better? Who knows? but why not meet him and decide for yourself.
Matt likes to change his facial hair often
(or is it he is too lazy to shave most of the time?)
although he will always keep those side burns of his. He did shave them off once... no one saw him for over a week!
He also really enjoys talking in the third person.
