Christopher Columbus’s life was filled with adventures and new beginnings that would leave a remarkable impression throughout history. Born in 1451 in Genoa, Columbus from an early age would become well acclimated to sailing as he began his career aboard a merchant ship and later study mathematics, astronomy, cartography, and navigation. Growing up and experiencing new thing Columbus began to come up with a plan different from all others to set sail across the Atlantic instead of going around the African continent. With his ideas being turned away from both Portugal and England it was Ferdinand and Isabella who took sympathy upon him and financial back his voyage as they both had hopes of gaining fame and fortune.

Furthermore, these letters allow us to explore a part of history that is considered monumental while gaining information of what took place over a ten-year journey.

Christopher Columbus and Alvez Nunez Cabeza de Vaca were both explorers for Spain, but under different rulers and different times. The more famous, Christopher Columbus, came before de Vaca’s time. Columbus sailed a series of four voyages between 1492 and 1504 in search for a route to Asia which led accidentally to his discovery of new land inhabited with Indians.

The letter Christopher Columbus wrote back to Spain to report his findings in the New World sparked intrigued me and sparked my imagination. Why I have been so absorbed in this letter I can not explain. This letter is supposed to be about describing an unknown land, a land that has not been seen by anyone besides the natives, but it seems that there is more to it than that. Columbus is known in elementary schools as the man who found the New World, and is regarded as a hero.

Everything in Juan letter is influenced by his knowledge that if he is going to succeed that he needs more money and help, and he uses his experiences and how strong his morality is to convince this Lord to give him more money.
When one thinks of ancient Indian empires, the Aztecs usually come to mind; the tremendous amount of luck and personal courage in rivaling and ultimately defeating this massive Indian empire in the new-found world should be a huge focus. Hernan Cortes was a Spanish conquistador who led an expedition to achieve wealth in the new-found world. When arriving Cortes found himself situated near a large Aztec civilization located in Mexico City. Cortes eventually gathered a large number of compadres and local tribes together and took over this once thriving civilization. That being said, Cortes and his men did show courage but that alone could not come near to the amount of luck the conquistadors
1519: a Spanish armada of five ships set sail that would soon be the first to circumnavigate the globe. Their captain, a Portuguese noble, was an accomplished student of cartography and astronomy. Europe’s cravings for spices sent Columbus to Asia, and into the barrier that was the Americas. Magellan’s expedition sought to find a way through, on a mission to bring a new trade route and immense wealth to Spain. Through the crew’s starvation, two mutinies against him, and his harsh personality and lack of accomplishment, Magellan proved his life was not worth saving.
The Journal of Christopher Columbus is the day to day journal/diary writing of Christopher Columbus. He started taking notes of his journey starting the year of 1492. This took place mostly on his voyage over the Atlantic Ocean on his way to the Indies, and also on the lands he discovers on the way to his destination.

Throughout my years as an explorer, I have been to many different countries. I have also come in contact with many people and learned about many different cultures. In most of the cities I have been to, although the type of government system may vary, the one thing that tends to stay the the same throughout these societies are the role of women and how they are treated in the everyday world. Like in my most recent trip to Mexico, I had the opportunity to observe that the role of women was extremely different from the role of men.
