Hey bloggers!!

Here is the legend of El Dorado..!

Check it out!!

     The original legend of El Dorado, the Golden Man, began in 1530. According to the legend, an Indian chief from Colombia used to cover himself in gold dust and sail out onto Lake Gutavita. Then, he threw gold and treasures into the lake as a way of pleasing the gods.

     The Spanish heard about the legend of El Dorado and searched for the treasure in Lake Gutavita. They found many treasures hidden deep in the water and took away a huge amount of gold. They came to believe that somewhere, lying hidden, there was also a city made of gold!!

     To this day, no one has found the Golden Kingdom. The name El Dorado has become linked with a lost city of gold. Many still believe that the lost city of gold lies deep in a forest or high on a mountain in Colombia, waiting to be discovered!!

The Flying Dutchman

Hey bloggers!!

I'm sure you have heard about Flying Dutchman, right?

It's one of the most famous Legends EVER!!

Here it is :

     In 1941, Captain Vanderdecken and his crew were in their way home to Holland on board a ship, the Flying Dutchman. As the ship came round the Cape of Good Hope, on the tip of Africa, it sailed straight into a terrible storm.

     The captain and his crew tried for hours to battle against the high winds and huge waves. Just as they thought they would make it to safety, they heard a loud crash. The ship hit some rocks and slowly began to sink. Captain Vanderdecken refused to give up and he ordered his men to stay on board. He shouted '' We will get round this cape even if we have to keep sailing forever!'' But this ship was badly damaged and sank, sending everyone on board to the bottom of the sea.

     Today, whenever there is a storm off the Cape of Good Hope, people say that you can see the Flying Dutchman and its crew sailing round the coast.

     According to the legend, it is bad luck to see the ship.

     In 1881, King George V and the crew of the Royal Navy ship the Bacchante spotted the Flying Dutchman. The next day, one of the crew fell from the mast to his death. The last recorded sighting was off the coast of Cape Town in 1942, when four people saw the ship sail into Table Bay.. and then disappear!!

So, be careful everyone!!
