I want to discover Asia where I can get gold and spices.
Christopher Columbus was born in Genoa Italy between August 26 and October 31 in 1451. His father, was a wool weaver. Christopher Columbus helped his dad by selling the wool by going on a boat to different houses asking if they wanted any. Christopher Columbus did this because he did not go to school.
Christopher Columbus had many problems. His first problem was when he was a child, Christopher was out selling wool when French Pioneers set his ship on fire but luckily he swam to shore on the coast of Portugal. His second problem was when he asked the King to sail to Asia to find a new trade route he did not accept. Later on, Queen Elisathebeth said no but then yes.
What christopher Columbus wanted most was the gold and spices in Asia. Christopher Columbus thought what he had reached was Asia but it was actually the Bahamas. He met Natives who traded parrots, bread and spears with him. Columbus had sailed the Atlantic ocean 4 times. When columbus died in 1506, he still believed that he discovered a new trade route through China.
