Started getting into hitchhiking in New Zealand during a couple of weeks there in December 2002 after 14 months on the road through Europe, South \ Central \ Northern America. Before then, only hitched a couple of times in South America and the USA.
Then again in 2009, hitched around France, Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Andorra, Finland, Estonia, Hungary. Then did a bit more hitching in Japan before returning to my hometown, Perth in Australia. That trip was 10 months long and went through New Zealand, South America (Chile, Brazil, Peru, Colombia, Ecuador) then through Europe, China and Japan.
When not traveling, Matt is keeping busy with his business.. at the moment that is Scales Plus
