Hammocks. What a great thing to relax when you are on vacation, especially if it happens to be a beach with an amazing view. Imagine the white beach and sky blue water right in front of you and the cool wind blowing through your face and through the locks and lengths of your hair. Imagine yourself in the swimsuit of your favourite colour taking deep breaths of fresh air and just swinging away beneath the palm trees. Alone in solitude and peace.
