Photo Series: Places That Make Me Happy I Left My Job

This week I marked the 4th anniversary of that fateful day when my former 9-5 job and I finally parted ways. Although I’ve been running this web site for more than 6 years, it was only leaving my job that propelled me into the weird but rewarding world of being a professional travel blogger. Since then I’ve been blessed with many rewarding travel opportunities and while I’ve never worked harder at a job in my life, this new career I’ve created for myself has been the joy of my life. For today’s photo series I thought I’d share moments from some of the trips I’ve taken since leaving my job, always thankful for the many experiences and special moments.

  1. Hi Matt,
    Congratulations on your four years of full-time travel blogging. I remember when you announced leaving your job — with equal doses of joy and fear.
    I think your voice is one of the more sensible and professional out there — I always know your posts will be informative, inspirational, sprinkled with great photos, and most importantly your honesty.
    Looking forward to many more.
