1. Who are you?
My name is Daniel Tam-Claiborne, and I’m a Chinese American freelance writer and photographer, originally from Brooklyn, NY. I work for Yale University and write for the website travelbreedscontent.com.

2. Where are you now?
New Haven, Connecticut: birthplace of the hamburger.

3. What do you do when you’re not travelling?
I just recently got into bouldering, but I also enjoy cooking, running, and watching reruns of the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Competition.

4. What was the last piece of music you listened to?
Never Ever, by All Saints. My music taste is perpetually stuck in the ‘90s.

5. Tell us briefly the travel story you shared in LOST.
Stranger in a Place Called Home, the story I published in LOST Issue Two, is about a trip I took to my mother’s ancestral hometown in Taishan, China. It is part-family history, part-search for identity, and speaks to the challenges of being a perpetual outsider in a foreign place.

6. What do you love about travel?
Seeing something so ordinary become imbued with an other-worldly quality.

7. What do you hate about travel?
The feeling immediately after alighting a long-distance bus in a new city.

8. Do you like to travel alone or with people? Why?
I like to travel with people. For a long time, I believed that there was a certain romance to solo travel, but after doing it, I realized that I actually preferred having someone to share the experience with.

9. What do you think about during travel?
The way my life might be different had I been born somewhere else. Oh, and food.

10. Any future travel plans?
I’m taking a 10-day cross-country roadtrip across the northern United States from New Haven to Seattle in August. I really dislike driving, so this should be an interesting trip.

我叫 Daniel Tam-Claiborne,華裔自由撰稿人和攝影師,來自紐約布魯克林。我在耶魯大學工作,為 travelbreedscontent.com 網站撰稿。

2. 你現在在哪?

3. 你不在旅行時平常會做什麽?
最近我迷戀徒手攀巖,我也很喜歡烹飪、跑步、看“內森吃熱狗競賽” (Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Competition) 的重播。

4. 你最後聽的一首歌是什麽?
All Saints 的 Never Ever,我的音樂品味永遠地停留在了90年代。

5. 用一段話,簡單地告訴我們你在《LOST》分享的個人旅行故事。
《“家”裏的陌生人》刊登在 LOST第二期。我去到了母親的祖籍地:中國臺山,一面去探尋家族的歷史,一面去尋找一種身份,同時談及到了一種獨在異鄉為異客的挑戰。
