Matthew in the German Alps, 2008

I’m Matthew and soon I’ll be contributing a regular column to GoBackpacking.  I’m currently planning a 4 month backpacking trip to South-East Asia and my posts will explain what is involved with planning a long term trip, everything from budgeting to visas. In the past of I’ve backpacked through Western Europe and Cuba, two experiences that I want to share with GoBackpacking readers.  I had some unrepeatable and amazingly unique experiences that are just dying to be told.

I live in Winnipeg, Manitoba, right in the heart of Canada.  As a outdoors person I’ll always seek out the call of the wild in my travels, and I’ll try anything once.  To me travel will always been about pushing myself outside my comfort zone, those sweaty palms and queasy stomachs are always worth it at the end of the night. I’m looking forward to sharing my preparation with you, and hopefully make your trip to Asia a whole lot simpler.
