Have you met Mini Maurice? If not, let me introduce you.
Mini Maurice has been my traveling sidekick since 2012. He’s logged many hours in planes, buses and ships; he’s been to four continents and about 20 countries. He loves a great adventure and is always on the search for the best banana. Or banana flavoured liqueur. He’s also been known to try wine…and mojitos.
When he’s not traveling, Mini Maurice lives at Sorrentino’s Compassion House. He hangs out with women undergoing cancer treatment. He participates in activities around the house and in any fundraisers we are doing.
There was an original Maurice – a regular size sock monkey – who it seems had too much fun with some house guests one weekend and never returned. Original Maurice was a real party animal. Mini Maurice enjoys a good time but sticks close to the house when not traveling.
Mini Maurice has an extensive wardrobe at work but he travels light. He grabs his monkey Tilley-esque hat and we're off.
He is getting very excited about his next adventure and a month away from work.
Here’s a video of his 2015 transatlantic adventure.
