I never truly understood the beauty of a hammock until our family trip to Costa Rica in 2011. Here we spent 6 days in what we named the “Jungle House” – a house with 3 walls, where the house was open to the jungle. The kids and I spent hours laying in the pair of hammocks – reading, talking and sleeping. An unbelievably decadent experience. Before leaving Costa Rica, we purchased a colorful hammock to bring this pleasure home.
First we hung this hammock in our living room. Yes, in our living room. It was amazing. Now, the hammock sits on the patio – where we can lounge outside anytime. It is especially peaceful in the evening, when the sun has set and the traffic noise has hushed a bit.
I have a travel hammock that will accompany me on my journey…I LOVE my little hammock!
