Which explorer would have influenced you to want to immigrate from Europe to the area they explored?

I would like to go to the Hudson Bay. This was explored by the one and only Henry Hudson. He was an explorer that was unsuccessful in his mission but still was successful in a way. This was because he did not find a new route to Asia like he was paid to do but he still explored the Hudson Bay around New York. He was even named to be the one who started and invent New York.

He has influenced me by making me think that even if I fail there is always something good that comes out. He has done this by not completing his mission. He was still amazing because of how brave he was to go were no man has gone before. This E-Flyer shows I would follow him to the end of time.
