Can't say I've ever heard of a depth-first search being called "recursive travel technique". In what literature did you find that term?

Probably is just a different translation, the meaning is that you are going to implement depth-first search algorithm using recursion (a function which calls itself inside of it) to travel throw the graph. Do you need any help on that?
