Enroute to Las Vegas (aka Lost Wages)

Hi all my fellow followers, as I post this I am about to head to the airport to fly out to Las Vegas for 6 days of partying and moshing alongside 300,000 people at a 3 day music festival!

So far working as a trail builder again has been an awesome experience and there is a good chance I will not be returning to NZ any time soon. There is a heap more exploring to be done here in Canada and the northern hemisphere.

Las Vegas will be an interesting time, and I will keep facebook updated with photos so keep an eye out!

Matt over and out.

Life in Canada

Hey everyone,

First week of work down, three more to go and then I get a week off to go and explore Vancouver.

There is still heaps of snow around (see photos) but we have had some bluebird days on the hill the last three days, which equals dry trails and really fun to ride.

I will take my camera to work next week and will take some photos of the tracks and will post a video on Facebook at some point next week.

Anyway that is all for now, have a great week in NZ and enjoy your autumn!

In Canada

I am in Canada now living here

There is still heaps of snow around, and it is still quite cold. I am looking forward to the summer time in about 8 weeks time.

I will post photos on FB in the next few weeks.

That's all for now.

Off on my big adventure...

As some of you are aware, I am off on my OE on March 19.

I am starting off in Canada working for NZ Trail Solutions in Vancouver, and will make my way through to Europe all going to plan.

The next post will be from my new home in British Columbia.

Last post

Hello followers,

This will be my last post for the trip. Hope you all have enjoyed the (almost) weekly update. I have been here for three months now and so my tour of duty is almost over. We have our last weekend on the town this weekend and then I am home on the 12th of June.

It has been a pretty cool trip and I have experienced the South American culture kind of. Living with 16 other kiwi boys and two maids who speak only Spanish has been an experience on its own. I now have over 700 photos and many stories. I am also fluent in Spanglish too haha

Hope that you have all enjoyed the updates and I will no doubt catch you all up in NZ at some point. I will most likely be moving back to Palmy to be with my girlfriend and if there are no jobs there then Welly or the Hawkes Bay are the next options.

If anyone wants to see my photos I can sort something out like putting them into a zip file. Just email me.

Sweet as,

Matt out

Hey kids,

2months down and only three more weekends left for exploring. We had a 21st here last night (Saturday) which involved a funnel and a massive bonfire which is always guaranteed a good time.

Hope that you all enjoyed grad week and that you all drunk more than enough.

Not much news this last week, it is supposed to rain this week and not get above 8 degrees during the day. The weather is mean as in the weekends but digging in the rain isn't so bad anymore, it just sux being wet all day long only three weeks left though.

Anyway that's all for this week.

Ciao chicos and chicas

7 weeks down 4 to go of living the dream...

Time has certainly flown by and this will be one of the last posts on this blog, hope all you guys have been enjoying the weekly update of my travels. My plans for future travels are non-existent at this point but coming back to South America and doing some actual backpacking is on the list including Canada and Europe.

This country (from the little I have experienced) is quite cool and the people are really relaxed, the toughest thing is the language barrier but I have managed to get by alright. We have one more trip planned and that involves heading further south to the glaciers of the Patagonia region, so there will no doubt be photos and stories from that trip.

Have a mean as time at grad this week kids, don't get into too much mischief.

Matt out...
