I wish that I could say that this trip was solely for leisure. I also wish that I could say that I had no other motives for wanting to cycle across the country aside from wanting to experience the thrills of traveling, exploring new places, and meeting new people. While all of the above is true, there is certainly more reason as to why I'm going across country than just the aforementioned. I'm in search of freedom. There's a whole world of words to explore and I haven't yet left my home. To be liberated from the confines of a muddled mind and to be enlightened by words in a way that frees you from all possible limitations is what I'm in search of. I believe in the power of words and I want to put myself in the position to learn and fully understand each one of them, because there is indeed a better word for that one that is lacking.
