In 1271 Niccolo and Maffeo are on there way to Asia but this time they bring young Marco.
The Polos journey was made on land. they had to go through a lot of tough places and through it all Marco Polo showed his strengths.
Finally after four years of travel the Polos reached Asia. The Polos thought they were only going to be gone for a few years but the ended up staying there for 23 years.
After 17 years of being in Khans court they felt that they have been there too long and decided to go back to venice.
So after a long two years of travel the Polos finally reached Venice. Since they have been gone for almost two decades there families were not able to recognize them and they could barley speak there language.
A few years prior to Marcos return to Venice, Marco commanded a ship in war against Venice's rival city Genoa. He got captured and was sent to prison by the Genoa's king. While he was in there he met a man by the name of Rustichello this is where Marco wrote his books. and was released in 1299 and went on to have a family.
