Travel Website with a Difference - Where the Hell is Matt?


Where the Hell is Matt is a travel quasi-blog which has taken on a life of its own. In simple terms, Matt Harding has traveled the world recording a strange jig-like dance in front of some of the great travel wonders of the world. Indeed, there are recordings of Matt dancing in places as diverse as the Pyramids, Kuwait and Petra in the Middle East, Machu Picchu in the Americas and Iceland in northern Europe.

Matt Harding was interviewed on a leading Australian program called Enough Rope last night. A short video clip and the full transcript are available on the internet, which gives a view into the accidental nature of the whole creation and shows some of the down-to-Earth character of Matt.

Hi Mark:
Love your blog - great photos! Where the Hell is Matt is certainly an inspiration to all travel bloggers. If only I could find a sponsor like he did. I guess I am just going to have to be satisfied with the joy that writing brings me. I started out as a travel blog when I backpacked solo around the world and then broadened the scope when I returned. You might enjoy my blog as well: http://holeinthedonut.com
All the best,
Barbara

@harish: Thank you

@barbara: I think we all dream of a sponsor like Matt obtained. I will pop by your blog today (cool name).

Thanks for the links to the interview with Matt. I loved the video when I saw it a while back, and it was fun to read the story of how it started.

Thanks for the recommendation. I haven't heard about this blog before.

By the way, can you update the name on my blog in your blogroll? To Travel Blissful instead of Blissful Travel.

I recently heard that Matt Harding passed away (he was hit by a car while crossing the street) :(
The videos he produced were so inspirational and he was a great guy.
He will be missed.

@anonymous: I don't believe this is so and I certainly hope not. A person of the same name who was vice-chairman of Chelsea was killed in a helicopter accident some years ago.
