Ive been using the site for a few weeks now and thought it was about time I introduced myself. Im Matt 32 from Southampton in the UK. Im new to travelling and am off to Oz in a few weeks time for my first trip. A while ago I thought to myself 'Sh--t Im 32 where is my life heading...better do something before its too late!!' With inspiration from friends who have travelled and also from this web site I decided to give up the boring career, rent out the flat and take off. Of course I still dont have a clue what to do with my life, but I am gonna have a good time and have some new experiences. I am soo excited now, its like being a kid again. Thankyou travellerspoint for the help and inspiration you have provided. One of the reasons to travel is new experience of new culture and Im sure I will broaden my horizon as I have never been out of Europe before. However If there was one good thing about the boring old career Ive just given up it was that I got to travel all over the UK. Ive seen just about all of England, most of Wales and a good bit of Scotland. I wouldnt say Im an expert but if I can be of any help to anyone visiting the UK, please dont hesitate to leave a message. I hope to add to the site again as I travel so maybe speak to you all later.
or as my 8 year old niece calls me 'my uncle travelling Matt!'
Anyone else old enough to remember the Fraggles!!!!!
