The seaside location of the Hammock Visa Gift Card is appropriate to understanding the origin of hammocks. The word comes from the name for fishnet in a language spoken in the Caribbean. When Spanish explorers came to the area they were impressed with the comfort and utility of the devices and took some back to Spain. Hammocks promoted good health, too, as they protected people from insects, snakes and other pests they encountered sleeping on the ground. If you look at this picture and think “Vacation!” that is a perfectly fine response. Celebrate hammocks with Hammock Visa Gift Cards.
