Unique Things You Can Do With a Hammock

Hammock is now getting more popular for camping than before although there still many people who don’t know what it is. For those of you who really just heard about it, in short, the hammock is the fabric (mostly made of the parachute nylon) that is hung for various purposes. With that material, then came the lightweight hammock that you can bring anywhere in your backpack as you can get on the market today.

Besides its main function to be used as a place where you can sleep by hanging between the 2 trees or poles while travelling or camping, there are also other benefits you can earn while using it.

Unique things you can experience with hammock

Usually, it is very rare for many of us to use the lightweight hammock as a bed although it will really possible since we only needs to getting used to it. But if you ask the mountain hikers or look at the rock climbers, hammock is the second choice of bed they often choose besides the tents. But many have also makes it as their own main choice since it has many of the benefits.

Sleeping in a lightweight hammock at outdoor or park

Sleeping in a hammock indeed is the first thing you can do about it especially when you are on your way to the tourism spot. But besides that, there are more you can do. I mean, there are some of the unique things you can do with it as well and I will present them to you on below lists.

1. Why not doing your homework in a hammock?

Try it for once! This first unique thing you can be done if you hung the hammock either at indoors or in a park. Since the hammock itself will be on the hanging position, those of you who are sitting will certainly sway and it may quite hard to not to moving around when your feet don’t step on the ground or any surfaces.

But if you get into it calmly and patiently find your best position, then you can simply open up your notebook and start doing your homework. If someone chooses to do a task with that condition, a relaxed feeling will surely be obtained and the task will be completed sooner.

2. Explore your photography skill

As mentioned before, the main function of the hammock as a bed is already rarely encountered. Therefore, hammocks themselves are very rarely seen in people’s homes. With the scarcity of this hammock, surely an interesting photo will be produced if someone is selfie while sitting or sleeping in it.

There are also many of the conceptual or themed photographs are created by asking the models to be inside the hammock either on the beach, mountain or hill, next to a cliff or even inside your house.

Thinking about that it is your first time sleeping or being in a lightweight hammock, doesn’t it will makes you eager to explore of what it could benefit you related to create more creatives and wonderful images?!

3. Watching TV, reading the book, etc

Watch TV while sitting or lying in a hammock? This can be a unique choice that can be done as well. But for that, you have to place a hammock in your TV room first and I think it will be easy for setting it up.

If someone really does this, watching TV will certainly be more comfortable. Moreover, for those with insomnia will be able to sleep more easily if lying in a hammock that sways while watching TV.

In addition to selfies, maybe this is the main function of a hammock that is often used by people if the hammock is in a house or garden. Reading is an activity that requires calm and must be done in a relaxed atmosphere. Both of these things will surely be obtained if you can sitting in a hammock and therefore, those of you who likes reading the book as well as watching tv should try this.

4. Playing with your beloved children

Cheerful. That may will becomes the only one word that more than enough for describing the childhood, right? So that, I think that most of the parents will definitely do everything to put a smile on their children face. And to get that, using hammock with the children is considerably or even will be more fun since it will be the new thing for them, and you have known that the curiosity of the children will always be interesting to explore many things.

Even, hanging on it will also be one of the playing spot. You can’t only gathering with them inside it while playing, but also adding some of their favourite toys, putting the pillow as well as the bolster so they will also getting sleep faster in case you are troubling with that.

5 . Makes it as the decoration object

Let me ask you some things, you must be “jumped out of the window” knowing that this idea is never been recommended by anyone arounds you, right? How comes a lightweight hammock can be part, let say, of your house decoration while most of the people are commonly talking about the furnitures, curtains and other common decoration objects?

Some of the decoration objects in the house that are hung mostly somethings like the lamp, paintings and photos on the wall and also the curtains. The last 2 objects surely will sticked onto the wall while the lamp will be hung on the ceiling. So that, why not trying to setup the hammock itself either on the ceiling or on the certain stands?

You will only need to pay attention to the hammock design and the colours combination so it will blend well inside your house or room. And this point will also support what I have talked before about playing with your children. So you will not experience problems when setting it up and disassemble it repeatedly.

By doing that, who knows you may finds it increase the aesthetic aspect of the room.

There may other things you can do with the hammock that I have not mentioned at above. But to sum them up all the above points or lists, it is so dynamic to use the hammock besides its main functions.

Get your creatives out of your minds and implement them with the tool that is usually used for travelling. You might be surprised by yourself.

A Trip To Komodo Island, How Many Days You Should Spend?

Usually, when talking about the travel destination, one of the question in our mind is wondering about how much money we should spend from the first time we are leaving our home up to arriving to the destination. So with the trip to Komodo Island as well. But, I won’t mention about that at this time. Instead, I am going to delivery you about how long of your times to be spent to get the most of the trip. I think it is also important since it will also answering how much money you have to be brought. The more days and nights you will be spend, the more of your bank will be broken. As simple as that, right?

Trip to Komodo Island by boat

Now, when talking about the times, there are some of the trip to Komodo Island packages you need to know. Most of what I have heard and found online are the One day trip, 3 Days and 2 Nights or usually being abbreviated as 3N2D, 4D3N and 5 Days and 4 Nights. There are also other package option depending on your own itineraries or the tour operator itineraries.

Now let us assuming that you will get a flight to Labuan Bajo (Komodo) Airport from Denpasar, Bali. The flight can takes mostly up to 1 hour until you will be landed at the Province of East Nusa Tenggara. There is also a flight that will take up to a half of the day, so you will be arrive at night (about 6-7 PM for Indonesian Central Time).

But, let us say you will be get to the Flores Islands for only 1 hour and you will be arrive at 10 or 11 AM (morning flights are only 2 when I writing this article). And the worst is, a trip to Komodo Island will be better to be sailed earlier in the morning. Not to mention about how many times should be spend from the airport to the hotel and harbour as well. I hope you are not hungry at that time.

So, your 1 day actually will mostly be spend on Labuan Bajo city alone. I think, there’s nothing you can do about trip to Komodo Island at that time, right? So, if you could only hope for the 1 Day trip in the same day, then big chance that you have failed.

So now, according to the Komodo Island tour packages from the time point of view as I have mentioned above, then for the minimum package, you should get at least the 3 Days and 2 Nights Package. For that package, you will at least have a 5 days of holiday to get more safer times for you to flight back. And that will be achieved if only you are living in Indonesia. Even if you are flying back to another country, then it would be Malaysia or maybe Singapore because the distance is not so far.

How long to sail from the Labuan Bajo to Komodo Island? It will takes your time for about 2-3 hours. So, according to the last trip to Komodo Island package, you will not only exploring the Komodo Island, but also Rinca, Padar Island and maybe others. Hope the information is giving you some insights. Thanks for reading.

A Trip To Padar Island That Looks Like Surreal Island

Padar Island is the third of the biggest island included in the Komodo National Park in Indonesia. Located at province of the East Nusa Tenggara that most of the Indonesians will calling it as NTT (Nusa Tenggara Timur). The two largest islands of its predecessors are Komodo Island and Rinca Island.

The three of the above islands are mostly easier if you want to watch the Komodo dragons, but the most favourites for the tourists are the Komodo and Padar Island.

The view of the Padar Island itself from the top of the hill is so unique. Seems like it is the volcanic island and at the same time, looks like the wing or another body part of the dragon as in the movie. See the below image for what I mean by assuming like that.

Padar Island trip

Padar Island is not a populated island, so you won’t find any of the villages in here. If by any chances you are meeting with the residents, they may have came from the another island for looking for the foods, hunting or anything else to fulfill their daily needs. Even, none of the building in this island.

So it is not only as one of the original habitat for the dragons, but also quite a strange for the human being. A really calming island because you won’t be hearing the crowd in here. Thanks to the development of tourism, now many of us could comes to the Padar Island, safely by using the boat.

The contours of the island is hilly, no wonder that you will see many of the above photographs uploaded by many of the travellers online in their social medias. Its island shape is also looked like the the starfish with some of the branched legs, so that, it getting more unique and becoming one of the interest for the traveller. And for those who love the instagramable images, I suggest you to be here one day. Its worth it.

There are some of the hills at the Padar Island. But since they are quite high and steep to be trekked, many of the travellers are even not allowed to hike on them for their safety. But to be honest, as a whole, the view of the island looks like a really surreal masterpiece. even feels like a dreamy island to me.

If you want to come to Padar Island, there is one way especially from the Labuan Bajo city where the nearest airport is existing called as the Komodo Airport. The trip to Padar Island will be takes for about 3,5 – 4 hours using the boat as it is the main transportation. Sounds like it will be the boring trip? Wait until you are departing from the dock.

On your way to the island, you will be served with the view of other islands and beautiful blue sea. Anyway, that’s for the short trip. If you wants the longer one, you could start your journey from Bali or Lombok where there are also many of the tour operators providing the same package as what you could get at Labuan Bajo.

Since you will be exposed to sunlight for hours on board or at the island, you’d better bringing your own sunblock with you. It is also because of the weather might be hotter. Don’t you forget to use the trekking shoes or sandals as well so you can move comfortable and safe while trekking on the Padar Island’s hill. And of course to prepare your camera at its best so you don’t miss any important moment and view on the island.

How To Choose The Right Hammock Camping Tarp?

Hammock camping tarp is one of the most needed accessory that is usually used to get more comfortable when laying down in the hammock without need to worry about the brighter sun, rain, snow, and many more. In many cases, it is also will help you a bit for getting warm inside the hammock because it could divert the wind direction.

There are other 2 of the terms related to hammock camping tarp, they were also called as the “rain tarp” or the “rainfly.” But whatever will be used for this article, I think you’ve known what we are talking about. At least we have agreed about the tarp functions as on the previous paragraph, right?

How to choose the right hammock camping tarp

There are some of the factors or variables to help you in choosing the right hammock camping tarp for yourself. The first one will be, choose the right size and shape. And to that, there are various types of the shape which are the tent tarps shaped, asymmetrical and diamond shaped, rectangular, and hexagon.

How to choose hammock camping tarp

If you are really need a hammock camping tarp for the extreme weather or the colder season (snowy), then using the tent tarp shaped will be my first recommendation because it will almost cover all of your hammock and looks like a tent. So, you will be getting warmth than using the other shape. But if you need a more minimalist design of the tarp, then your option is using the asymmetrical or diamond shaped. It will really quickly in setting up and also the lightweight one. The shape of the tarp should also be associated with the its dimensions, so you could go at once.

The second thing you can do to get the right hammock camping tarp and also the important aspect to be focused on is the durability.

Yes, what about its warranty? Especially if found defects in workmanship and materials. Is there any brands that give you up to 10 years of the warranty for the hammock camping tarp? I am sure that there is one that I know like Ticket To The Moon. I believe that the reason behind of; the more years the warranty is, the better of its material is used. And that will be support its durability.

The next thing you should paid attention is the carrying capacity. Not only when buying a hammock, but also when deciding to have a hammock camping tarp because the tarp itself should be carried some weights. For example, if by any chance you are camping when snow is falling, then you know that it will really helpful. The bigger of its carrying capacity, may be the better. But, keep in mind to makes it as light as possible so your luggage weight is light as well.

That’s all I know how to choose the hammock camping tarp. Although there are only 3 aspects you are about to concern and only in short description or not an in-depth article, I hope they will still beneficial for you. Have fun when hammocking!

The island itself is become one of the popular island not only at its own regency that administratively included into the West Manggarai regency or at its own province, but its name has also been well-known probably the whole world.

5 Basic Things About Hammock Camping You Should Know

Hammock camping is a stylish way to be brought while traveling. Especially in providing you “a shelter” and helping you taking a rest or sleeping. And the good news are, it is not only comfortable but also is safe to be used as your swinging bed. If you have got a hammock camping in your hand right now or just decided to buy one, you’d better read all the lists below in case you don’t know much about it. Of how many could be use it, to the way how you will clean it after using it.

Hammock camping from Ticket To The Moon

And since the hammock camping is available in various type, materials and style, today I’ll introduce you about the hammock from Ticket To The Moon (TTTM) as one of the manufacturer based in Bali, Indonesia. So, all of the basic things about the hammock will be so related to the TTTM’s product.

1. How many people could be fit in a hammock?

There are two popular hammocks camping which are the single and the double hammock. The single one surely recommended to be used by one person, so with the last size for the 2 person. The single hammock itself will make you sleeping comfortably alone and also could be fit for two person as well but it will going too intimate as I thought. You know what I mean right?

If you decide to buy the double hammock camping size, you may also use it for about 3 person. But, if only they will sitting down, it may still comfortable. But when 3 of them are trying to sleep in it, then it really not recommended at all. There is also a King Size Hammock where can be used by the two adults and a child.

All are depending on the size, so the bigger you get, the more people you will invite. So later, don’t be surprised if by any chances you are witnessing more than five people have a great fun in a Mammock (the biggest size).

2. What about the guarantee?

Manufacturer like Ticket to the Moon, most of their products carry a 10 years warranty against defects in workmanship and materials. If you get the damaged one, it is better if you could returned it so the manufacturer could help you in repair the hammock or change it with the new one. You’d better ask yourself about this before buying at wherever places or online shops. And such any other products beside the hammock, I think most of the guarantee will not cover rips, burns, tears, and damages due to accidents, wear and tear, improper care, miss-use or the natural breakdown of colors and materials over time. I think you should have known about this, right?

Related to the products guarantee, you’ve also known that the hammock itself is made of the nylon fabric that is, you may say, as the extremely resistant. But, you should also aware that it also fragile. If you get the small holes or burns of your hammock, those can be repaired with the “repair patch.” You may need to find about it online in case you will need it someday.

But if you have bought one of the hammock camping from TTTM, the good news is that we all want to hear is that they will never let their customers down. So it is better to get in touch with the team for further info and update.

3. Is the hammock camping breathable and why is that important?

Yes, it is need to be asked as well since I think it also one of the important thing to be known. If you are asking about the hammocks from TTTM, then the answer is YES, it is breathable.

The important thing about this is not only in helping you breathing, literally. Or as an ventilation for the air circulation. But also to quickly drain your sweat in the hammock. The usage of the porous nylon fabric will really friendly whether for the adults or even the children. The material will not hold the water as well, so even you are leaving the hammock in a heavy rains without a tarp above it, draining it will be very easy and fast. Moreover if you have a sponge to absorb the water or the even the duster.
And no need to think about the threat of the rot or mildew if you are leaving it for days.

4. How much space needed for hanging the hammock?

For setting up your hammock between trees, poles or other vertical surfaces, you need a maximum distance for about 3 and 4.5 meters.

If you can not find the poles in that distance, then you need to increase the height of the hooks so it’ll be looks like a curve. But if at the field you find that the poles are further apart, you can use the nautical rope to bridge the distance as you may have seen the pictures or videos where travellers are sleeping between the cliffs.
