In the last 12 months, I have travelled constantly and obsessively, attempting to re-capture moments from my past, and to experience new places and phenomena. During the same period, I have also restlessly shuttled between three cities that I called home – London, New York and Singapore – pursuing a Master’s Degree in World Cities and Urban Life, and trying to be a good son, brother, lover and friend.
The next few posts are a “Best of 2011,” providing a visual narrative of my wandering and homelessness last year. They are also a way for me to say “THANK YOU!” to all the new friends I made and old friends I visited last year, many of whom opened their homes to me at important stops along my journey.
The first installment… Spring… A contemplative meander through Amsterdam, London, New York, London, Paris, Dubai, Doha…
万树江边杏，新开一夜风。满园深浅色，照在绿波中。上苑何穷树，花间次第新。香车与丝骑，风静亦生尘。 (唐 王涯《春游》）
