There is something very special about hammocks but I just can't put my finger on it. Probably because every exotic beach location has them hanging from their palm trees. There are in all those exotic photos that show nothing but a deserted beach with crystal clear water and an empty hammock. Just the sight of that makes you wish you were there instead of on a train, on your couch or stuck at work. I think that is it. The fact that every photo of exotic locations with hammocks in them has created a stereotype that hammocks belong in these places.
