"There is absolutely nothing we can do about where we are now, except to be good citizens, stay at home and be safe," says Indagare member and interior designer Charlotte Moss. One way she’s kept occupied while maintaining social distancing? Room traveling.As we navigate social distancing and our new style of working remotely, Indagare organized a room traveling session of our own, hosting a virtual travel show-and-tell of meaningful objects in our homes. We traveled to the far north of Namibia, to the 20th arrondissement, and to the verdant rice terraces of a small Vietnamese village.

“Bhutan isn’t really a place that’s known for shopping, but I found a way! My mother and I popped into this studio in Punakha, where the artist had created a lot of these paintings, all done by hand with gold leaf, representing different Buddhist gods. Mine represents the God of Power. When I meditate, I face this. It helps me stay at ease and calm. It transports me back to Bhutan, where I wish I were right now.” - Caroline HansenCarved Indian Elephant“While volunteering with an educational organization in India, I found these carved, wooden elephants. I was roaming around shops in New Delhi, after having spent three weeks serving slum communities in Mumbai, and I was feeling a restored sense of purpose and intention, but I was also missing my family terribly. I purchased one of these elephants for each member of my family as both a keepsake and a reminder of all the goodness and love in the world. The elephants have stayed with all of us throughout many stages of life, over the span of more than 10 years. They have become, to all of us, a symbol of family, travel, hope and joy.” - Avery Carmichael Rocks from around the world
