Matthew, 39, shared on his blog on Saturday about his worldwide roadtrip and how he spent his November 4th birthday.
“I spent my 39th birthday on the southern rim of the Grand Canyon,” he shared of his special day with girlfriend Camila Alves and five-month-old son Levi. “[I] almost got ‘butted’ off the edge by a ram and caught some shooting stars.” His ultimate impression of the landmark? “Mother Nature created something that looks so fake, it’s real. I was once again reminded of how good looking this country is.”
Matthew also opened up about people he met along the way. “I was in some predominately ‘red’ states when President-elect Obama was elected,” he wrote. “I talked to a bunch of people who had voted for McCain and – check
this – unanimously, those same people were genuinely excited and hopeful about Obama being elected. They all felt that the country had spoken in earnest, electing Obama, and they were more than ‘ready for the ride,’ they were ready to get into the action.”
Matthew also traveled to Brazil with Camila.
“I went to Brazil for the first time to visit my lady’s family and tour the land a bit,” Matthew blogged. “Found a very proud and happy culture there. We ate, we drank, we danced, and they tolerated my stumbling through the Portuguese language….I will return, beautiful country, beautiful and classy people…thanks Brazil…cool.”
Matthew seems like the most cheerful and relaxed person!
