Hello, my name is Matthew and I am a world traveller. In nowadays life it seems that the pressures of society does not let you out. By out I mean going to see the world, allowing yourself to gain your own perspective on things and to make decisions for yourself based on your own experiences not what the media is catering to you. The news says one thing, the newspaper another, and the internet even another. The only way to really know is go and see it for yourself. Take your shoes off and feel the earth beneath your feet. Smell the air, experience the culture. How the sun, the moon and the stars are unique to that place in it's own way. Traveling allows for the change in perspective in your own life.

There is always an opportunity to find your own road. There is everyone's way and then there is also this little moments of a dirt road in a life. That can be the road that brings you to the sunlight

Traveling a road less traveled can be challenging. It also can be liberating. When we look around and see what you can see on this picture it comes to one's mind that it might be a good idea to go find your own road as a break just for the sake of one's sanity.

You never know where your road will take you if your destination is exploration. Sitting there on the top of Machu Picchu with a Super 8 film camera and looking at the world from the top I realized that life is what you make of it.

Embark on your journey fearing nothing. It doesn't have to be a dangerous or a wild path through the jungle. You may but don't have to be barefoot. Take a car or a train if that's more comfortable. And never forget that every moment of your life can be a Road Less Traveled if you choose so.
