Go to Guatemala, Weave Your Own Backstrap

Learn the Mayan art of backstrap weaving in Guatemala and bring your amigos back handmadebackstrap souvenirs. So you know, backstrap weaving is defined by a woven strap used to leverage the weaver’s own body weight against the work. The weaver leans in to slacken or back to create tension. Huh? Traveldish, a website I can’t stop clicking into, has a good selection of what they call “Brainy Adventures for the Thoughtful Traveler.” They feature article’s like Kennerly Clay’s backstrapping experience and tons more. If the roadkill story didn’t turn you off, I dare you to give it a shot.
