You should know now that I have never taken a travel pillow abroad.
Largely on the grounds that my Mum advised me this was a good idea, handing over a flat packed blow up pillow for lengthily, upcoming bus journeys.
…I will not be that silly poppet on the bus who inflates her pillow
So naturally I said no and laughed outrageously, as this tiny piece of travelling equipment found itself at the bottom of my wardrobe.
I will not be that silly poppet on the bus who inflates her pillow. Until of course I sat next to someone who did exactly that and fell asleep, comfortably, on our remaining 10 hour bus ride.
The thing is if you’re travelling for a long period of time, a miniature pillow could be a good investment costing £3 up. As long as it’s compact and you can endure the embarrassment of blowing this up in public, go for it. I’ve still no idea why I find this such a strange concept.
In truth I opt without pillow, but perhaps when my neck starts to crumble and needs added support, this will be my next travelling essential item.
