In 2005 I went on holiday to Australia, staying in Hong Kong for a few days on route. I was away for 42 days, and decided to write a letter back to myself at the end of each day. I also collected ephemera, especially maps, of the places I was visiting. Upon my return, I constructed a visual diary of a drawing and a found map. These were exhibited with my letter underneath.
