Ever been on a long-haul flight on coach? How about on a 13-hour bus ride crossing borders? Or perhaps you’ve stayed in a spartan guesthouse?
Being a budget traveler, you might have experienced any or all of the above at some point. I did. And though I’m used to sitting long hours, it’s still uncomfortable when you cannot fully stretch your legs or properly rest your neck and/or back to sleep.
One of the things I regret not bringing in our recent Indochina trip was a travel pillow because I thought it would just take up space. And while inflatable neck pillows are great, I don’t think they can provide lumbar support when needed. Now when it comes to guesthouse/hotel pillows, they can also be a hit-and-miss and can sometimes give you a hard time sleeping unless you’re too tired to care.
Good thing I received Nilo Pillow (the travel pillow) shortly after Christmas!
Starting this year, Nilo will now officially be my travel buddy so watch out for it in my future travel reports. 🙂
