About Matt Kyhnn

Matt is the owner & editor of the rapidly growing travel blog, and currently calls beautiful Queenstown, New Zealand home.

He first fell in love with traveling and experiencing the unknown in 2007 and hasn't looked back since. His favorite destinations are Edinburgh, Turkey, the south of Thailand, Bali and of course, Aotearoa.

When he isn't marketing New Zealand cycle tourism over at or offering advice and inspiration to the budget conscious traveler or backpacker at, he's out riding New Zealand's great mountain bike trails, tweeting, drinking coffee or generally enjoying living in the most beautiful place on earth.
