Top 5 Things to Bring to a Desert Island

#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.

"Everyone told me I had to attend an InterNations event here in Boston. I finally did, and from then, I didn't miss a single one."

"Brasilia is a very particular city and all about politics. Through InterNations, I met so many interesting people from other fields."
