Matt On The run

A Photo & Travel Blog



What if you decided to do the most outrageous, most exciting thing you ever dared fantasize about, regardless of what anyone, including your terrified self, thought? That would be living.

Too many years have passed that I’ve sat back, stuck in my own thoughts, with dreams of traveling, overcoming my fears, and finding full understanding and love for the world and myself. I’m making the choice to pursue my passions at all costs, to learn and discover like my life depends on it.

No matter what, we all exist on a giant rock hurling through space at thousands of miles-per-hour. The earth we live on is huge, multi-faceted, dynamic, ever changing, and adapting - just like our own minds. Yet there are pieces of what it means to be human in each and every culture.

Through the lens of self-development and exploration, I’m traveling the world to better understand myself and this ever expansive place we all inhabit. Travel to live, live to travel.
