Arrivederci Roma

Here we have two significant milestones in my world – Taking a potentially life-altering overseas trip for who knows how long, and starting a blog.

I always knew the two would be intertwined, though never anticipated what an amazing, breathtaking moment it would be. Ha! Ok, enough of that.

So if you are actually bothered to read this thing, chances are, you probably know by now that I am heading off out of Australia this week. I had of course decided to compile some sort of collection of my thoughts, while I trek across the globe. However, seeing as I’ll most likely forget when I’m away, now is a good time to start and get organised.

I’ve been really happy with how things have been going lately – my career is keeping busy and have had some major opportunities come up in Australia. It also feels like there is a great momentum starting to happen, and it took a lot of consideration for me to ‘throw’ that off. This is the right time for me to travel though, as I feel that the next step for me to take as an actor and creative person is to walk outside my world and take in the other people, places and things that are out there.

I hope that I’ll be able to share these experiences on here through words ‘n’ pictures, and that YOU will keep me up to speed on what’s happening in your life.

EDIT: I actually started this blog a week or so ago, when I was quite calm and collected though excited about the trip - now it’s the day before I leave and I’m bloody pumped!!

If I’m seeing you overseas – I can’t wait to catch up! If you are back home, I’ll see you on the internets and stay in touch.

Hey Matt!

Greetings from Glasgow! While it's sad you're leaving just as we were all getting to know you, travelling is one of the best ways to get to know yourself! Old Irish proverb - "May the road rise to meet you, and may the wind be always at your back". Best of luck! Natalie.
