A place to discuss health and fitness, healthy diets. A fit body makes for a fit mind.
Ever been stuck in a hotel room in a new city, with your mindfulness disturbed? I feel that way all the time. I have to travel for my work. Sometimes it's fun, but lots of times it just doesn't contribute to a peaceful mind.
How to sit? Hotel pillows don't do the job. Here's a product I've been using when I'm on the road. http://www.stillsitting.com/sitting-on/travel-zafu-new.html
Not as good as your real cushion, but better than nothing.

I've always preferred a towel folded up a couple of times.

I just use the neck cushion I take along on the plane ride. When it is used in a tight circle, it does the job as a meditation cushion as well.

I find rolling up a thick jacket or jumper usually does the trick.
"Whenever we feel that we are definitely right, so much so that we refuse to open up to anything or anybody else, right there we are wrong. It becomes wrong view. When suffering arises, where does it arise from? The cause is wrong view, the fruit of that being suffering. If it was right view it wouldn't cause suffering." - Ajahn Chah
"Remember you dont meditate to get anything, but to get rid of things. We do it, not with desire, but with letting go. If you want anything, you wont find it." - Ajahn Chah

I use an afghan prayer rug as my floor mat and a very thin futon-style chair cushion folded over.
I also use a dark-brown/grey blanket as a meditation shawl.
Anyway, I thought you, or someone else, may appreciate knowing about the following inflatable travel cushions at Pariyatti.
I actually got to use one courtesy of one of my American friends at Shwedagon Peyah.http://store.pariyatti.org/Meditation-A ... c_137.html
If and when I go travelling again - I'll probably invest in a couple of inflatable cushions.
