Some of the translations for the album title is instead "The Story About Journey", though, on their website, "Travel Story" can be found.

Re: Travel Story

After some more digging, there might have been a translation mistake from one of the websites used above (or elsewhere). I’ve since found that one of the musician’s names, "Daifumi Nakamura", may have been mis-properly translated, and instead might be "Hirofumi Nakamura".

He also plays piano, see here:
