Traveling with friends and family is always fun, but traveling alone is where it’s at. I have never felt more brave, smart, beautiful, and adventurous than when traveling alone.
Everyone knows that one friend who claims they just LOVE traveling; but you and I both know that the all-inclusive, resort-style vacation they are referring to is a far cry from the down and dirty experience of traveling. While traveling is an amazing adventure in and of itself, backpacking seems to add another level of extremity. Not only do you get to experience the food, the locals, and the secret hotspots first hand, but you also get to bask in the glory of only showering when you can physically feel the dirt flaking off of your skin. Believe it or not, being filthy is exhilarating. Backpackers are notorious for being young, wild, and free, but in my opinion, backpackers are so much more.

The Party Animal The Party Animal is the person who is traveling solely to get wasted every night. “Oh, marijuana is legal in Uruguay?

This Moleskine is an easy addition to your bag so that you can pen down your thoughts or use it as a sketchpad.   Throw Blanket Sometimes if there is a slight breeze, this blanket adds a great layer to the hammock to take the edge off the cold. Try to find a blanket that packs down so that it doesn’t take up too much room in your car or bag. ENO offers a variety of hammocks...
Linking CommunitiesHola ENOpians! It’s no secret our hammocks have journeyed all over the world and provided comfort and relaxation to their fellow travelers. But recently we heard our ENO hammocks provided more than just a sweet place to slumber: they helped link two very different communities. Ian Palmer, an ENO lover from Atlanta, went on a two week trip to Tanzania with Young Life. During this time, they stayed briefly in a remote village that, according to Ian, had no previous interaction with American people or culture. Although they were from very different places, believed very different things, and spoke very different languages, they found common ground in an ENO hammock. This is his story… “We were greeted with a certain amount of initial shyness, but more so with kindness and openness, especially from the kids. Almost immediately after stringing up my ENO, this elder approached my foreign device with curiosity. He was particularly fascinated by the design of the slapstraps and the material of the hammock itself. It took a few minutes of convincing, and several demonstrations of the hammock’s safety, but eventually he conceded to hop in with me. Once he got settled, he really seemed to be enjoying...
