This chapter examines the diverse social relations and economies of intimacy migrants engage while en route. It aims to complicate normative understandings of human mobility and human smuggling by focusing on the intimate social relationships and forms of carework including protective pairings and simulated kinship relations that develop along migrant journeys as well as the tensions and contradictions they produce. This chapter also discusses the ways migrants maintain ties to their families.
