Man, I’m almost 30. You’re not even 29. Almost 30 is terrible! Why? Well, I’ve been wasting my life. I don’t want to turn 30 and realize I’ve never cycled around South America, never took the Trans-Siberian across Russia, never climbed Kilimanjaro, never saw the northern lights. That’s crazy, what have you been doing with your life? I don’t know, time just slept away somehow. Just like that? Yeah, I don’t know what happened!…"about 30"
Shall we use a sign? Signs are for beginners, we are pros now! We don’t need one? When we started hitchhiking we used signs because we were shy, we didn’t know what to do or where to stand and wanted the sign to do the job for us. And now? Now we are pros, we don’t need a sign, or a backpack to look like backpackers, or a map to show our driver where…"Evolution of hitchhiking"
I’m always hiding in the bushes at night. Hiding from the people and the police because I find it sickening the fact that I live in a society that has to pay for sleeping, and frowns upon those who refuse to do so. Often wondering if there are others like me out there, people hiding, in the same city, maybe in a nearby bush, people who are also wondering if there are others like…"Someone’s hiding in the dark"
Why dont you want to stay at the backpackers’ hotel like all the other foreigners in new Zealand? Because they are lame. But it’s the norm, young travelers here are expected to stay at the backpackers’ hotel, didn’t you hear? Actually, I did hear it, and it’s still lame. I’m not gonna pay for sleeping, at least not for sleeping in a filthy crowded place, for that I can just sleep on the street. When…"backpacker hotels in new zealand"
The other day I got picked up in a van that was carrying 10 people from a country called Vanuatu, which I’ve actually never heard of before. I felt like I was back in Asia when they started playing this party music very loud and singing along. They said that in Vanuatu, they can’t leave someone on the street, so when they see someone hitchhiking they HAVE to pick him up, because of their upbringing…"About Vanuatu and my life"
23/6/2013 I have decided to talk a bit less politics and talk more about my daily life, feelings and thoughts. Of course, sometimes I feel down and a bit worthless like most people do, but then I think about it and realize I’m actually really lucky and most people reasonably envy my lifestyle. It’s unique and strange, but quite interesting also, because I chose to live without using money, or using way less than everyone…"A night at burger king"
Let’s take the bus! Na, I’d rather walk. Why is that? I just don’t like the bus. What, are you too good to use public transport? No, I’m just too poor to use it. It costs a lot, so as long as I have feet I’ll walk, run or ride the bicycle. If I ever get my legs cut off, I’ll then maybe… take the bus or the train. But do you know how…"About the bus"
Friend: Where’s your stash? Bruno: I’m not gonna tell you. Friend: You should. Bruno: Why? Friend: Well, during the years that you have been moving around, sometimes you’ve come to accumulate stuff you couldn’t take with you when you left, so they had to be hidden somewhere. You wouldn’t just give them to a friend, because you don’t want to be a burden or trouble other people with your stuff. You know they also have…"Hiding stuff"
Friend: Why do you travel? Bruno: I don’t travel, I’m always in Taipei. Friend: So why did you travel before, were you trying to find something? Bruno: Not really, but you know sometimes you pretend you are looking for something, but actually you just want to have fun looking for it, if you find or not doesn’t really make any difference. Friend: How’s that? Bruno: Well it’s like some people when you ask them while…"Find an excuse"
