If there’s one thing we can thank the internet for, it is the power of an illusion. Although I spent a sleepless night on a non-reclining seat on a four hour red-eye from LAX to Miami, it would be hard to detect disillusionment on the glossy, documented Instagrams that followed. And as a total enabler of illusions, I will attest that for every effortless (seeming) pose on a hammock is three tangled attempts to wrangle into the bed. Next time you see a perfectly coiffed vacation photo, I challenge you to ask: Is that really a one-take-wonder?
