Yeah, always try to bring your own travel hammock with you. I mean, not all the times. But when it comes to travelling, it is better to considering it to be taken. You don’t want to miss all the new and unexpected experiences, do you? Even before you have bought one in your bag, there’s no chance you would have imagined that the hammock will be so much easier to be put in your backpack. You don’t even need to master how to fold it just like your neat t-shirts in your cabinet although that would be helpful as well.
Anyway, I don’t know much about how far have it been improved up to this day since it had been invented. But the travel hammock that I am talking about for now is the lightweight and portable one, water resistance, durable, super compact so you will be save much times in preparing the luggage, and many more that making it as the one of the “must to bring” item while travelling. At least that what I am thinking.
Reasons you should be thinking about bringing a travel hammock
Before travelling, we keep on looking for the accommodation. Where to stay. We keep on seeking the comfort and affordable, spacious, or even the luxury one to get the best of our journey especially when dealing with the destination in the heart of the city. While a travel hammock itself simply provides an outdoor and indoor sleeping experiences that in fact is so comfort, healthy, creating the more adventurous feeling, etc. Although sleeping in a hotel could not be compared with the usage of a hammock for various reasons, but bringing a hammock to your journey surely will make you thinking about where else you could setting it up. There are big chances you will be telling yourself about that, trust me.
And not only those above reasons why a travel hammock should always be considered to be brought to your destinations. I will also listed down below to get as specific as I could to encourage you to do the same, or at least thinking about it.
1. Compact, lightweight and durable
I know that I have mentioned before about this, but I think that I will still need them in the list because you will be save more times in preparing your travel hammock, won’t burden your shoulder for its lightweight design and there are many of the manufacturer that giving the warranty even up to 10 years. Your bag will have more enough space so you might need it for the other items.
2. You will sleep better and deeper inside your travel hammock
That’s being said and claimed scientifically. It is great for your body and mind when sleeping in your travel hammock. I won’t getting more specific about how to achieved the better and deeper sleep since all you just need to do is a proper adjustment of your hammock and your sleep position. But the fact is, deeper sleep surely the better. And using the hammock will give you bigger chance for that. Better from your own comfort bed. There are even many people have been using a hammock for years, and they are feeling better comparing to the result of sleeping on the regular bed.
3. It may becomes the cheaper accommodation
You have not only a better and healthy sleeping, but also, when you bring your travel hammock, that could be the cheaper accommodation you have so far. Moreover if you are travelling to the supported spots or areas that possible for you to setting it up. And it will only take 5 or 10 minutes before you are sleeping away.
4. Getting more experiences
I know that you may setup your travel hammock for about a meter or more above the ground, or considered as not too high. But the thing is, it is really different for laying down or sitting at the same height when using a hammock than a chair or the same items. May it because the flexibility, the comfortability and many more that makes it open the new way of experiencing the same thing you have been through before.
For example, laying down or sitting in your hammock at the beach to enjoy the sunset. Although it may the regular or one of the common thing among many in this world, still it feels different. And you may wondering around about how could this happening for the same activity that we keep on repeating?! But this time it is changing, especially when talking about your feeling.
Imagine using the travel hammock for other common things, doesn’t sound interesting and worth trying? Not to mention about the adventurous experiences it could provide such as sleeping above the river’s current, between the cliffs, and many more unexpected and surprised spots.
5. It is fun and exciting
Ok, I am going to get this straight. I know that some of the travellers seems thinking that “fun” is only for a child or the amateur one. But whatever the assumptions have been spoken out, let’s forget about it for awhile. I simply thinking for now that it will be more fun for a father or a mother laying their head inside the travel hammock with the son or daughter. I think that children will really love it. Imagine that what if you are doing it while taking your family to the beach. What a really thing to try!
And for you that considering yourself as an dangerous enthusiast, to get more excited about the usage of the travel hammock, you may could challenge yourself for hammocking between the cliffs or even the skyscrapers if possible. But please, just stay safe and sound without getting yourself harmed. No need to proof anything.
6. You don’t have to find the trees
When talking about the travel hammock, your might thinking about hanging the hammock between the trees since there are many videos and images that showing us like that. But to be honest, you are really don’t necessarily need them. You could change it with the poles if existed or getting your own hammock stand that could be folded down and then reconstruct it and which will then allow you to hang your hammock anywhere. Even in your own bedroom if the space is enough for it.
While camping at outdoor like in the forest, using the travel hammock will also beneficials in leaving the spot without a trace and you won’t need to worry about harming the trees as well. Of course it will be a great and a safer way for exploring the nature, don’t you agree with that?
7. Can a hammock provides the shelter for the homeless?
For the short answer; Yes, surely it can. I am not confused by this topic while writing down about this, but when us, as a big society could not possible sharing home with the homeless, you may could help them with your travel hammock. And I hope the hammock manufacturers in the world are thinking about this as well. In case they might want to included into their company’s social responsibility. Why not?
Not only that reason why I am informing you that. Travelling itself could makes you as the homeless guy. Especially if you have not found any accommodation in the destination where you are desperately visited. Although there are many alternatives you could choose, I think one possible thing among them is the travel hammock itself. Moreover, we never know what awaits us for the next.
Get yourself ready for anything!
I know that you have made a perfect plan for your travelling. Where the best to stay in the city, what mountain should be hiked, all of your itineraries are perfectly mapped out as you are thinking. But, how could not your holiday going wrong? Surely I hope the best for you, but still, you need to anticipate for the unexpected things. And for that, I would like to reminds you to always considering to bring your travel hammock for accompanying you while adventuring whether to the different state or even another country at different continent. Especially in treating it as your own shelter. Because in reality, you have known that sometimes the perfect plan is not all the thing you need.
