About me

Born in 1451 I was fascinated with maps and exploring but of course all that took money so i got a job at the age of 14 selling maps while trying to help support my very poor family.But 19 I got a job at sea until i unfortunate was attacked by pirates and left stranded in the water holding onto a piece of woof for dear life.About 10 years later i have gained the financial support from queen Isabelle of Spain to find a new route by sea to get spices from Asia.I did not reach Asia but of course I didn't know that at the time but what i had found had been a lot better of course as later figured out i had stumbled onto new land the Americas full Indian natives and tons of new foods and spices that will make me very profitable in the long run.I lived a very good life until I died in 1542 of old age.
