This work is called The Danger Zone and it is an echo to The New York Times article which asks if travelling is changing in the era of natural disasters caused by climate change. Will the burning forests and floods stop people from going places that are potentially dangerous? Will the people from danger zones be welcomed to the safe places? Will the knowledge of harm caused by travelling stop the search for excitement, sun, self knowledge, new experiences and wisdom that travelling gives? How will Kaia travel back to Estonia to visit her family? Will she fly, walk, take trains, buses, hitch rides? All these questions and burdens make her so tired, that she’s just going to stay home.
