我的名字叫 Crystal Wong，在香港出生和成長。目前是學生和自由工作者。
最近對阿育吠陀 (Ayurveda) 很感興趣，有空就會看看有關阿育吠陀的書和文章。
MONDO GROSSO – ラビリンス。
旅行的時候常常思考成長階段在身上設下的框架，在旅行中接觸不同的人後，就會晒思考哪些框架應該拆除，讓自己的人生活得自由一點。譬如說媽媽從小跟我灌輸不要接受陌生人的邀請，因為那是一件危險的事。但經過多次 couchsurfing 之後，才知道世界上好人佔的比率比壞心眼的人多太多。處處規範自己，擔心這擔心那, 人生損失很多樂趣。
1. Who are you?
My name is Crystal Wong, I was born in Hong Kong and grew up there. I am currently a student and freelancer.
2. Where are you now?
I am now living happily in Busan, Korea, with the person I love, accompanied by a dog and two cats.
3. What do you do when you’re not travelling?
Because I am staying in Korea, lately I’m spending most of my time learning the Korean language. Sometimes I create my own personal work, practise Yoga, or go camping with friends during long weekends. Recently, I’ve become interested in Ayurveda, so I read books and articles about Ayurveda during my spare time.
4. What was the last piece of music you listened to?
MONDO GROSSO – Labyrinth.
5. Tell us briefly the travel story you shared in LOST.
In LOST Issue One, I was invited to share my travel story. At that time, I had just come back from Japan, and so I shared my experiences that arose from my shyness and inability to speak Japanese. We usually define language as the most basic form of communication between human beings, but the truth is most people in the world only know how to speak their own mother tongue. If we stop conversing with foreign friends because of language barriers, we would lose many opportunities to learn about other languages and culture. Communication isn’t only limited to speaking; smiling, drawing, and body language are also tools for communication.
6. What do you love about travel?
I like encountering different people along the way, and listening to their stories.
7. What do you hate about travel?
I hate losing my belongings during travel.
8. Do you like to travel alone or with people? Why?
I think it depends. I usually like to travel alone, but sometimes I like to travel with friends whom I can get along with. Travelling alone is fun in its own way, but traveling in a group is a different kind of fun. Both are good experiences.
9. What do you think about during travel?
During travel, I tend to think about the boundaries that I had set up for myself while I was growing up. When I interact with different people in my travels, I will consider which boundaries I need to remove, so that I can live more freely. For example, my mother used to tell me never to accept a stranger’s invitation, because it is a dangerous thing. But after couchsurfing many times, I learned that there are more good people in this world than bad people. You miss out on a lot of fun in life if you constantly restrict yourself and worry about everything.
10. Any future travel plans?
I’m planning to go to Tokyo and Nagano during August, mostly to catch up with an old friend in Japan. I haven’t seen her in a long time so I’m really looking forward to this trip!
