I am Vasco Nunez De Balboa
Why I started to explore???
I started to explore because i was the governor and we needed money to stay wealthy.
What I do as an explorer
I am strong enough to have the courage to climb mountains sail the Pacific Ocean to earn and find money to help the people I love.
I am brave and strong but also care about my family and friends
What conflicts took place
Pedrarias' enemies had convinced King Ferdinand to send a replacement of him from Spain and order a judicial inquiry into conduct as leader of Darien because they Pedro Arias Davila thought that what Vasco did was a threat
When i started to explore
In 1513, Vasco Nunez De Balboa led the first European expedition to the Pacific Ocean, but the news of the discovery arrived after the king had sent Pedro Arias de Ávila to serve as the new governor of Darién.
