I was first inspired by a quote by Mark Twain about a journey and my collection was made in conjunction to the journey within my mind. The process was divided into some sections like some separate journeys to discover more about myself and to built my collection. I recorded the way I thought, planned, and created during the making process in my notes as my own personal “travel journals” to show my ideal lifestyle, clothing, and attitude. A journey never ends until you are gone. Make and control your own route but sometimes let yourself go with the flow like a wave or a cloud. Enjoy your life and be happy.

I would like to thank everyone who supported me and my collection: my family, Jackie, Yuki, Yuta, 70B Antiques, all of my friends, and my tutor Howard, Willie, and Allis.
