These are some of the questions I would like to ask a fellow writer if I ever met one. Why do we doubt ourselves? What’s your favorite place to write? Do you write down sitting down? If yes, do you ever think about how sitting for many hours a day considerable shorten our lives? Do you let people read your unfinished works? Would you trade your life in the real world to live inside one of…"Questions for writers"
Hey, it’s me. We finally made it to Vancouver somehow, and it’s great to be here. Not really so different from Australia though, but the city in itself is much friendlier than I expected. I had read online that it was difficult to make friends here but it wasn’t the case for us. It probably helps that we were not looking for people to have deep personal relationships with. We just want people to hang…"Greetings from Vancouver"
Dear mom, By the time you read this I will be on a plane to Australia. I know it will come as a surprise, and I must say sorry for telling you I went to a friends place. It was a lie. I had packed my bag last night and hid it and I had been planning this for the last few months. I know you love me very much, that’s why I need to…"Dear mom"
Bruno, hi! This is Ria (a character from one of your books), remember me? Surprise! Haha, oh geez so much pressure being at the top of the list, it’s like people will think I’m the most important one, but hey I’m just a fictional character so I don’t need to worry about it. So how have you been? I sent two letters back in autumn you must not have gotten them, oh wait, did I…"Letters I would like to receive"
This letter is just for you. Bruno from 2011. That’s when you first decided to start writing right? Well, there are some things you wish you had known back then, but you didn’t and no one told them to you, so I might as well say them now before it’s too late: You love writing in short sentences and listing items, so let’s do it that way. Writing is your dream, that much is clear,…"For 2011’s Bruno"

Hey guys, this is Bruce, sorry I haven’t been able to contact anyone in a while, many things have happened. It’s October 2016 now and we are 6 months into our South American trip, I decided to take Bong Gu on a trip of a lifetime, from Tierra del Fuego to Alaska, on foot. Why to Alaska? What’s there? Nothing really, and the trip is purely for volunteering, self-indulging ourselves and…"Greetings from Chile"
There are so many things I need to tell you. But even though I can’t speak your language, I still try to tell you in my own way. I know you don’t eat meat, and you don’t like white rice much but you still buy the meat and the rice for me because you know I need it, and I know when we go to a restaurant you ask them to cook something special for…"From Bong Gu"
Dear Bruno: I’ve been following your blog for some time now, and have to tell you that I’m very impressed by your writing. I like the way you express your thoughts and feelings. I like your sense of humor and sarcasm. You have an outstanding command over the language, you know how to transmit emotions and the way you use punctuation marks, makes it very easy to read and follow, as most people including myself…"Fan mail"
There were those nights, warm summer nights, when we were out in the countryside, and we felt the wind on our faces, that’s when we knew, that’s when we knew we were alive. When we were sitting by the lake, drawing circles in the sand, and just gazing at the stars, then the wind will blow your hair, that’s when we knew we were alive. And while waiting for a ride, by the side of…"That’s when we knew we were alive"
