Welcome to the JaYoe nation.

Into each life, some rain will fall... and it has fallen into the JaYoe world tour. I am currently recouping after a accident on the highway that has left my trailer and trike trashed, and me in the hospital recuperating from a shattered collar bone.

Hi, I’m Matt… and this is my Trike.


I am on a mission. A mission to see the world, to capture moments, and to have as many amazing experiences as I possibly can. At this very second I am somewhere between my Expatraite home of Ningbo, China and my eventual destination of Los Angeles, California. No flying if I can help it, and checking off 100 countries along the way, I am powering my way thru the world on a recumbent 3 wheeled cycle. I have 5 years from my start date of August 15th 2014, pleanty of time to make friends, see all parts of the world, and produce videos about my travels to share with all of you.


If you want to see where I am, I could not have made it easier.  I have a really cool map that plots out where I am, what I have seen, where I intend to go, and displays videos I have made in the specific places around the world.  Just open the map and click on any point, and you will see stories, videos, pictures and information related to that place.


So join me… and Ja Yoe!

Oh, and for those of you who have no clue what JaYoe means… maybe this short video I made will help you to grasp the idea!

if you are in china, you cannot view these videos. Please CLICK HERE to see this video on YOUKU

The JaYoe Travelogue

The main function of the trip will be promoting travel and the joys of the world thru the lens of my video camera.  I created a travelog called “the JaYoe Travelogue” to encompass the video I make along the way.  The videos will focus on the people, the places, the cultures and even the drama I encounter on my journey.  Below are some of the chapters of the JaYoe Travelogue series, but you can also see them on my Blog.
