My dream was always to see the world and discover new things, to know what was out there. I never expected for it to come true until this day. I am a sailor, I don't own much but I provide fish for the town. I know a lot about sailing and boats and this is why king Ferdinand and queen Isabellacontacted me. They were in search of an experienced man to circumnavigate through the seas and discover new lands. I promised to find new things and come back with a great price for them so that's what I'll do.
It's been 1 month already, we are still sailing, we expect to find land soon. According to our map there should be land in the southwest and that's where we're going. It has rained a lot lately, some of our crew is sick by now and one of them died, we had to throw him to the ocean, I hope he rests in pece. I once heard that Christopher Columbus discovered this land but it was just a part of it so we are in search for more. We want to find luxury goods to bring them to our king and queen.
After 3 months of sailing we finally got to land, we unloaded the ship and arranged a camp. We would spend the night in the beach and tomorrow we would explore this new island. Many Portuguese conquistador such as Vasco Da Gama had done what I was going to do now but I had a different destination. I was in search for adventure and glory, so that's what I would get. This place had a hot climate, not really what I expected.
