"Travel Within" is a reflection on the hard times that we are living in, characterized by the climate emergency, the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as continuous racism against Black and racialized people. It is an invitation to take some time out, to think about the role of nature in our lives and in the spaces that we inhabit, to care and to show some respect, starting with the smallest of things around us.
