This is footage from my bus ride from Narita airport to the Tokyo Dome Hotel. By the time I reached the hotel it was too dark to capture decent footage. I've transcribed my commentary near the end for better clarity. Perhaps the music's volume is too loud.

Commentary: To me, travel and freedom have always been synonymous. There's something that speaks to your inner guide or calls from within to men and women's simplest nature- this unbridled passion that coincides with meeting roads with no destination or endeavors that are not fixed by time. It's amazing what emerges from boundless opportunities and possibilites when you are not restricted to custom, race, tradition, or gender. Everyone's idea of freedom is different but it is derived from the same questions, the same desires. What's the point of this life, what am I made of, If I really try—can I accomplish great things? The very reason I've been compelled to travel is a hint probably towards what can unlock me, my potential. For some, freedom is making your own decisions, having a job you truly enjoy, being who you really are, or overcoming fear and doubt. Ultimately, these are things you can control. You're only going to be as free and happy and lucky and smooth as you think you are or can be. If you're wondering what's beckoning you, observe the choices you're making. Trust me, the ones you've made in your heart manifest themselves externally—clueing you in to where you're headed. I've made the conscious decision to have as much fun, meet as many people, and do as many incredible things as possible while in Japan. It is my greatest hope that, you too, will take control of your life and discover--just discover. To search, solely for the sake of searching. To all of my friends and family who are watching...I love you all and I'll see you soon.
