Explanation

The kanji and the word are exactly the same. That means they share meanings as well.

Reading

たび
Kyoko
(Tokyo accent, female)
Kenichi
(Tokyo accent, male)

Explanation

Since this word is made up of a single kanji, it should use the kun'yomi reading. When learning the kanji, you didn't learn that reading, so here's a mnemonic to help you with this word: You are going on your trip but you need to bring your little tabby (たび) cat with you to keep you company. This cat keeps you calm and lets you leave your house, but the airlines won't let you take it on this trip. What to do?
