What a year 2020 was! It certainly directed me to somewhere different from where I thought I would be at the beginning of this year.
I’ve worked in the Travel Industry for 20 years, so when 2020 threw a spanner in the works, I took this as an opportunity to study at TAFE NSW – I highly recommend them!
This last year did allow me to do some travel to places somewhere I may not have otherwise gone, within my home state of New South Wales and thats been awesome.
I, like most, have gasped at every twist and turn of 2020.
Like, WHAT THE FROG?! I’m sure most of the world, struggled to keep their head above water at times, like me, but if 2020 has taught me anything, it’s that I’m a lot more resilient than I thought I was.
Yes, 2020 was a very theatrical and emotional year that most will probably look back on with loathing. I, for one, will not be packing these negative feelings in my suitcase and dragging them onto my next destination. I’m also continuing my studies and starting University this year, advance standing from my TAFE Diploma – yep, I’m totally nervous but, like 2020, 2021 is going to take me somewhere I never planned.
So, FreakyFlier is back but now known as Matty Somewhere. I’ll be eating, cooking, having lots of pub lunches and, sometimes, travelling.
As we head into 2021, I hope you like where you are heading and you like Matty Somewhere. I will prattle on about food and travel and I hope some of my prattle makes someone, somewhere, smile. I am a huge advocate for travel, a total foodie and an ailurophile – thats a person that loves cats you dirty minded people!
Happy New Year and Welcome to MattySomewhere.com
