It was defo hard to say say bye yes to Barcelona. I mean look at this view! 😍 I always find it hard to leave a place and Barcelona tops the list each time. I'm glad I made this decision of randomly booking my tickets to Barcelona. And I always like to give back from places I have gotten the most. A few years ago, you wouldn't have caught me saying that I'd be jumping out of planes either! Haha 🤘Your reality is what you choose to make it.
Did you know, there are many tales around how Barcelona got its name?
The first of many legends states that the name Barcelona is an adaption of the original name, Barke-no¸ which was given to the city by Iberian settlers. This is supposedly attested in an ancient coin inscription from the Iberian times.
The second suggests that Barcelona was founded by the ancient Phoenicians and Carthaginians. The ruler was the Carthaginian, Hamilcar Barca and therefore the name may have come from the Carthaginian surname Barca, which means ‘ray’.
Another tale describes the tribe of the Layetanos who were conquered by Cornelio Escipión and that the area subsequently became a Roman colony named Iulia Augusta Paterna Faventia Barcino, from which the name of Barcelona was derived.
A legend from the Roman times states that Hercules set out on a sea expedition in search of the Golden Fleece. During the 9-boat voyage there was a huge storm, the first 8 boats escaped without damage, whilst the ninth was lost at sea. Hercules set out to find it and found the boat shipwrecked at Montjuic. The navigators were so taken by the place´s beauty that they named it after the lost boat- “Barca Nona” (the ninth boat).
During the Middle Ages the city was subject to a host of various names including Barchinona, Barçalona, Barchelonaa, and Barchenona.
Wake up like this 😌
Cerita dibalik foto:
Foto ini diambil dipagi hari (besoknya) saat air lautnya sedang surut. Kebangun pagi-pagi tanpa alarm, alarmnya burung yg nyanyi-nyanyi asik didepan kelambu. Pas buka kelambu, langsung hirup udara segar tanpa polusi plus liat ini. Wagelak sih! 😭😭😭 Dan lautnya pun bener-bener tenang.
Well, take all my money! i dont mind 🙊 #solobackpacker

Bon dia i bon siman!🙌🏼 Every week we wish you all a “bon siman” but what does it mean?
“Bon siman” is a phrase you’ll hear people on Curaçao start saying as of Sunday to wish others a “good week” in Papiamentu, the local language. It usually follows ‘bon dia’ (good morning) or ‘bon tardi’ (good afternoon) and can be used throughout the day on Monday. 🇨🇼 #bondia#bonsiman#curacao

Are u ready to explore the world?
30...man. My life has been a constant roller coaster of ups and down, and so many memories to go along with them. The last 5 years have broken me and built me up to become better. I feel that God has blessed me beyond belief and so much more than I deserve. Thankful for for trying times that have made me and cheers to the new ones that I’ll face head on. I’m incredibly humbled to know all the amazing people that keep me sane. Love learning from all of you and can’t wait for the future. One day at a time. 🙏🏻
