This is again sort of a bug. Travel works in two steps:

- First, it checks if there is a directory matching the query. For query
  `..`, this could be `a.directory.with.dots`. As soon as it finds a
  match, it goes to step two. You'll also go to step two when you hit
- Second, it opens the directory matching the query. However, there is
  an override here. It there is a directory exactly matching (e.g.
  `..`), it'll go there. If not, it'll go to the best matching directory
  from step one.

So, if you enter `..`, travel will check for a match. If there is none,
nothing will happen. If there is, it'll go to `..`. If you press enter,
it'll go to `..` immediately.
