Curated and illustrated by：Hsiao yu
“It’s a perfect time to review all of the travel memories, as for some reason we can not travel around. When I finished my London life, I decided to travel slowly from Europe to Asia, so I took the train. The whole journey takes 7 days, crossing 6 time zones, without wifi, only myself. I got a lot of drawing ideas from that trip. However, when I really started to draw it, 5 years passed. This 6 beds dorm room reminds me of the train sleeper. I draw a window for you, hoping you have a nice journey.” – Hsiao yu
