Travel Essential: Pillow

Read: Pardon the quality of the photos. These are two of my favorite travel pillows.

Types of travel pillows.

Yes, you read it right, PILLOW!!

Most travelers would say that it’s not in their list, most especially backpackers. They would rather bring their hammock than take a pillow with them. Among the top fives that usually come out are headphones, sunblock, wet wipes, sungglasses, and scarf. Realistically we’re not hard core backpackers, sooo we can manage a little bit of bulkiness in our packs.

A good, sound sleep is a must, even when traveling. Despite the full itinerary and the almost-requirement to wake up early, believe it or not, a pillow is indispensable. Below are two travel-inspired pillows:

1. Neck pillow

This will save you from stiff neck, shoulder pain, and upper back cramps. Usually, land travel requires sleeping on board a bus overnight. With the sitting position and tight space, the neck pillow at least gives you the comfort to lean whichever side of your head. Plus, it avoids you from bumping your head at the window shield.

2. Extra small pillow

Because of its size, it is also convenient to carry around and it is also comfortable to sleep on.

It will also give you the ‘hug’ your huge pillows give you at home. A piece-of-home is what they call it.

There are also relevant information about it online, and a helpful link popped at And guess what, it’s actually called a travel pillow! :)

Next time you’re planning your trip, squeeze in your must-bring one of these pillows.
