1. Who are you?
I’m Tom. Hello.

2. Where are you now?
Sitting at my dining table in north west London, thinking about what to make for supper.

3. What do you do when you’re not travelling?
I’m a director at a creative studio in London. I’m often working on all sorts of weird and wonderful things. Right now I’m making a film.

4. What was the last piece of music you listened to?
Richard Skelton – Undertow. It’s just absolutely beautiful.

5. Tell us briefly the travel story you shared in LOST Issue Six.
It’s a surreal piece about an extremely unusual place. I was in Malaysia, a good 100km from Kuala Lumpur in an industrial park. Instantly when I arrived I felt an eerie surge through my body and the inherent need to bottle this feeling. For some reason the best way to do this was by following the stray dogs.

6. What do you love about travel?
It makes me wiser, more understanding and generally a better person—I think.

7. What do you hate about travel?
Chatty airplane passengers. I find the trick is to not make eye contact—ever.

8. Do you like to travel alone or with people? Why?
With people—but not too many. I’ve been travelling alone before and I’m often reminded of a scene from Alex Payne’s short film Paris je t’aime where the lone traveller looks out from the Eiffel tower and says, “When I saw all of Paris, I wanted to say to someone, ‘isn’t that beautiful’, but there was nobody there.”

9. What do you think about during travel?
If I can imagine myself living there. What would my house look like? Could I find a job? Would anyone visit me? Do I even like the food here?

10. Any future travel plans?
I spent most of last year travelling. This year I’m playing it safe and exploring Puglia, in the heel of Italy. They deep fry pizza there, sounds good already, right?

1. 你是谁?
我是 Tom。你好。

2. 你现在在哪?

3. 你不在旅行时平常会做什么?

4. 你最后听的一首歌是什么?
Richard Skelton – Undertow。这首歌非常棒。

5. 用一段话,简单地告诉我们你在 LOST 第六期 分享的个人旅行故事。
故事有点超现实,它是关于一个比较不寻常的地方。当时我在马来西亚,在一个离吉隆坡 100km 的工业区。我一到达就立刻觉得浑身不对劲,想把这个感觉收起来。不知为何,当时最好的方法就是去跟随当地的野狗。

6. 旅行最让你喜欢的是什么?

7. 旅行最让你讨厌的是什么?

8. 你喜欢独自旅行还是跟朋友一起?为什么
跟人,但不要太多。我之前一直都是独自旅行,而时常会想起 Alex Payne 短片《Paris je t’aime》里的一个场景。场景里一个独自旅行者从埃菲尔铁塔望出,说到:“当我看到巴黎的全景,我想对某人说,‘这儿有多美’,但这里却没有人。”

9. 旅行时经常会想到什么?

10. 接下来有什么旅行的打算吗?
