The Adventures of Felix Luna, a Travel Pillow

Felix Luna in Japan
Ten years ago I'd been traveling extensively for about three years and realized a neck pillow would improve the long flights over oceans. In Denver International Airport I bought one. Not just a neck pillow, an animal. I named him Felix Luna, Felix since he's clearly a cat, Luna for the half-moon shape.

Now, celebrating ten years of travel together, Felix is quite the world traveler.

He travels through airports looking out of the pockets of the suitcase.

Back from China, the miles were showing. His white was a little grayed.

Even though I had some qualms, into the washing machine he went.

But he came out looking great! I gave him a new earring

And he's back with his friends by the bedroom window until the next trip!

PS If you like documenting being there but don't like selfies, adopt a neck pillow, a funny hat, or a cardboard cut-out.
