You may be thinking, “Ah shit, another travel blog. Why should I read this one and not the other thousands of blogs out there?” Well you may be right, but hopefully I can convince you otherwise.
There really isn’t anything special about me. My name is Matt Treglia and I am a 22 year old college graduate who has absolutely no idea what he wants to do with his life. I’ve lived in Staten Island, New York my entire life until I went to a small college in Upstate, New York. I finished school with a degree in Communication Studies. I have worked numerous office jobs, where I sat at a desk for nine hours a day answering the phone. I’d come home miserable, staring at myself in the mirror thinking, “Is this really what life is all about?”
I am not particularly talented in anything; I am not the best writer, and I have no money. I grew up in a household, where it was necessary to know exactly what I want to do with the rest of my life. I always tried to satisfy my parents by trying something new and attempting to stick to it. I never succeeded because no particular task kept my interest for very long. I may never know what I want to permanently do with my life and I have accepted the fact that I may always think this way. Upon finishing college, I stumbled upon numerous travel blogs about people who travel the world for a living. These people blew my mind because there was nothing special about any of the authors. They were ordinary people who were bored with the simple 9-5 job and wanted some more excitement in their lives. I thought to myself “this is exactly what I want to do.” I have always been the type of person who needs something new in his life. After researching about traveling for a few months, I packed up my bags and left onto my journey around the world.
So, now that you know a little about me, you may still be wondering why you should read my blog? The reason I’ve created this blog is to show all the average Joe’s out there, anybody can partake in this traveling lifestyle. You don’t need to be rich, famous, or intelligent to travel the world. Traveling can be done by anyone who has the passion and motivation to just get started. I’m here to help guide you on how to begin traveling and how to continue doing so, for as long as you please. If you are already a traveler, you can enjoy my stories/experiences around the world. Even if you are completely satisfied with your life and don’t have a serious interest in travel, my blog is here for fun and entertainment.
Welcome to Traveling with Treglia!
