Christopher Columbus

Your dreams are never limited

Christopher Columbus

Christopher Columbus was born in Genoa, Italy. He needed money to pay for the expedition across the Atlantic, so he asked King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella. After a few moths passed by he found land. Instead of going to Asia where he hoped to go, he went to a continent unknown to him. In Hispaniola, Columbus met Taino and Columbus wasn't interested in his culture, but was interested in finding gold. In 1504, Columbus came back to Spain with very poor health. After two years he died still believing he could go to Asia.

Journey Entry

Hi, my name is Christopher Columbus and I'm from Genoa, Italy. I wanted the expedition across the Atlantic, but I didn't have enough money, so I asked the king and queen. The year was 1492, I set sail with three different ships known as the Niña, Pinta, and the largest of them the Santa María. On October 12, 1492 my crew and I found land, thinking we found another route to Asia, but instead I found a continent I was unknown to. I called the island San Salvador. I had also visited another island also known as Hispaniola. I had met Taino and wanted to find riches in his land and I wasn't really interested in his culture. After I returned in to Spain with poor health... the year was 1506 and that was the year I died, but I was still hoping I could reach Asia someday.
