Johnson’s planned journey is about stripping away the layers of mental conditioning that have developed throughout her life and revealing the beauty in all things. Throughout her trip she plans to travel by plane, train, bicycle, ferry, and rickshaw to uncover cultural and religious relationships to nature, spiritual manifestations, and the formula for laughter. As she explores these regions her primary goal is to remain open and receptive to lessons that may present themselves along the way.
