It took three planes, one taxi, and a very long ride in a speedboat to prove to us that the language of DIY is international.

This restful scene is located in Tobacco Caye, a small island off the mainland coast of Belize. There's no REI on the island nor do we think Amazon delivers so the locals must often be creative with their materials.
