There is nothing like being stuck in an airplane or on a train for hours on end. Even a road trip can seem to drag on forever when you are low on sleep and feeling exhausted. Sleeping is not always an option, either, when you are caught in a middle seat — unless you have a travel pillow. It can provide the right kind of support, so you can rest easy, no matter where you are.
