It's almost the same, but hers is a little bit shorter. No wonder - it travelled all the way across the Atlantic.

"Her" - H? A? F?

The "it" in the second sentence - is this the same as "hers"?

Shorter - in length? In height? In time?

Is it: a physical object? Alive? A piece of clothing? Was it longer before traveling across the Atlantic? Can the difference in length be measured? Relevant in which century this happened? Decade? The method of travel? The time spent on the journey? The route taken? could the Pacific be substituted for the Atlantic, and still have the puzzle make sense?

the "it" that traveled across the Atlantic...from west to east? East to west? this (LTPF list of countries it traveled between please) from Germany to the US

Is it: a physical object? Alive? A piece of clothing? no to all of these Was it longer before traveling across the Atlantic? depends on your definition of "longer before" Can the difference in length be measured? I wouldn't call it "measured" Relevant in which century this happened? Decade? actually, I don't know, but probably before WWII The method of travel? slightly relevant The time spent on the journey? no The route taken? no could the Pacific be substituted for the Atlantic, and still have the puzzle make sense? noish

Is it related to: time? Feelings? Can it be said that she owns it? Has it? Has she always had it? Can she sell it? Give it away? does it have a size? Would the puzzle have worked if it traveled form west to east? Did she travel with it?

Here's the
********SPOILER********
When I had a look at some profiles, I noticed that Nimue's last name is Ackerman, and mine is Ackermann.
Lots of German last names ending in -mann lost their final -n in the process of Americanisation.


Balin, congratulations for the solve! Points also go to Kaylee and Kaygee (who have very similar names too).
