Subject: Re: Solo travellers' strategies
Hi all,

Candice's suggestion of bringing a petmade me decide to admit that I don't actually travel solo. A few years ago, my Mom gave me a Curious George stuffed monkey to keep me company on trips (I have a bunch of Curious George journals that I use on my trips). His shirt is full of pins from where he's been and he's in some of my pictures. On one trip, the young woman sitting a seat away has a stuffed pet too, so we took pictures of them strapped into the empty seat between us. It also can be a conversation starter when he's peeking out of my bag (tho most days he stays in the room.)
