Pillow Talk

Let's put the month of thanks to bed tonight and await the month of tradition in the morning. With that, my final of five things I will miss while on our journey- my pillow.

When it comes to pillows, I have what some sleep study specialists refer to as Goldilocks Syndrome. I like my pillow not too soft, not too hard. I like my pillow, you got it, just right. So, when packing my 44 liter pack, I need to compromise. Feety pajamas or pillow? Puffy jacket or pillow? All righty then, just the pillowcase. Heck, it's lightweight, compact and has more functions than a Swiss Army knife. Let's see, it can be a picnic blanket, a laundry bag, a turban, a beggars basket, a snorkel gear tote, a peace flag. There must be hundreds of uses for my pillowcase. Hmmm... Do they trick-or-treat in Thailand? I'm packing it!

When traveling like a vagabond, I may never know where I'll lay my head at night: a guesthouse, a hostel, a couch, a train station, a lap. At the very least, I'll have my pillowcase. For that, I'm thankful.
