Top 5 Things to Bring to a Desert Island

What would you take with you to a desert island? The answers collected in the InterNations office here in Munich were predictably diverse, from Wi-Fi sticks and TVs to pen and paper. However, there were also some clear favorites among the range of items. Here are the InterNations staff’s top five.

#5 Hammock

When hearing Desert Island, most people automatically think of a tropical island, with sandy beaches and swaying palm trees. And what are palm trees known to be good for? Hanging up a hammock of course! That’s at least the opinion of many InterNations staffers who chose to bring one along on this hypothetical journey.

And if necessary, you can always use a hammock for other purposes than gently swinging in the breeze. Depending on its structure and material, repurposing a hammock as fishing net or canvas bag, for example, comes to mind.
