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.

"The Alexandria community is like a big expat family, everyone is willing to help. This made us feel comfortable in Egypt very quickly."

"Through InterNations we've met a couple of friendly expat families in Algiers - it's a great platform to share experiences abroad!"
