My TY Sidekick, Glamour (aka: Pepa)

Glamour was given to me as a gift by a two year old boy, Nathan, who I cared for and watched grow up since his very first months on Earth. 

Nathan saw something special in Glamour from his first glance.

Each day we passed his favorite store he would stop and see if Glamour was there. Ignoring all the hundreds of toys, he would then begin to scream for her. 

After weeks of this pattern, Nathan arrived home one day to find Glamour sitting on his bed. His face lit up and he held her tight to his chest. From that day he gently took care of her, gave her hugs and kisses, tucked her in at bed time and made sure that she was always in the right spot.

They were inseparable. 

The difficult day came that I had to pack my bags and say goodbye to Nathan and move on to the next chapter of my life. With all my bags by the door, he had feeling of what was happening. With tears in my eyes, I got down eye to eye with him to give him a kiss and tell him how much I loved him. He looked at me, then to my bag, and then back into my eyes and ran out of the room. To my surprise he returned with his most prized possession, Glamour and kissed me softly on the cheek and put Glamour in my hands. 

Glamour went from being his most prized possession to my side kick on my exciting trip around the world. 

We have had the opportunity to travel to more than 40 countries together. Glamour has been on adventures that people only dream to have. We backpacked through Morocco, Africa, trekked/camped in the Sahara Desert, visited every country in Europe except for 5, walked the Camino de Santiago for 31 days from France to Spain, hitchhiked over 170 cars, couch surfed and connected with people all along the way.

Glamour has been the talk among many people and an important part of the story of the Nomadic Dreamer.
