Now I'll Never Roam Alone Again!
I get a kick out of the Travelocity “Roaming Gnome”. Especially this ad:
I know that “I’ve got to get out of here…” feeling!
I’ve always thought it was a hoot to have a “travel mascot” to take on trips. For a while I brought along my Beanie Baby dragon… but people kind of give you funny looks when you’re in your 40s and have a stuffed toy. (Kill joys!)
But WHO could give the stink-eye to the Roaming Gnome?
So I hit the Travelocity web site and sure enough – they have a web store! And in that web store was not one, but TWO sizes of Roaming Gnomes!! Score!
After much consideration of packing space (we will not even get into ‘available space’ and my overpacking husband…) and airline weight restrictions, I decided to go with the 8” gnome. Travel size!
Gotta admit tho, that 18” one is calling my name really, really loud.
