About The Author

Matthew Sawasy is an experienced sabbattee who recently discovered his passion for sharing his sabbatical experiences with others. During his last sabbatical, Matthew beheld the treasures of the Vatican, Seville, Paris, London, San Marino, Athens, Rome, Florence, Milan, Venice and on and on and on, as he traveled through 24 European countries and even squeezed Malaysia and Morocco into the mix. Among his adventures, he crossed one border on a bicycle, one using public transport, and another one on foot, all while meeting many interesting citizens of the world.

Matthew hopes to inspire aspiring sabbattees to follow their dreams and turn them into realities so they can live more fulfilled lives that overflow with fun and memorable moments to reflect on and share with their friends and loved ones.
