Goldfish to go

Goldfish to go..........................(goldfishbowl2.jpg)

When was the last time you took your goldfish for a walk? Or on vacation with you? Design student Michal Shabtiali has an inspired solution for fish enthusiasts: the Portable Fishbowl. Can't bear to leave Nemo at home when you head south for some summer sun? Take him with you in your carry-on luggage. But let's see if he makes it through airport security…

According to Shabtiali, 'the idea started as a project that I made for kids that have a divorced parents and two houses. The idea was to make for them a fun product that can help them to take their fish-friend from place to place.'

Travel company D-reizen has just opened a Goldfish Hotel at Schiphol Amsterdam Airport. If you're leaving from the airport and haven't secured a fish sitter, you can bring Nemo in a bag, and hand him over at the check-in desk. He'll be given his own suite and pampered while you're away. And in case you're worried, keepers swear the right goldfish will be returned to you on your return. Trippy. RM
