Plenty of people find a travel buddy to take around the world: A best friend, a sibling, or a significant other. But few round-the-world travelers would take the journey with this companion, and that’s what makes this guy’s journey so special. Guirec Soudee, from Brittany, France, has been traveling around the world with his pet, Monique, for the past two years. They first met on the Canary Islands, where Monique was given to the traveler as a gift. “It was love at first sight,” he wrote on his website — and it’s not hard to see why. In addition to having a unique travel buddy, there’s a mutually beneficial relationship between the two of them. In other words, although Monique and Soudee have seen a lot together, but the hen is more than just a fine-feathered travel friend: She also provides eggs for Soudee on his journey. See photos of the unlikely pair below.
