Columbus was looking for a faster trade route to Asia to make transportation more profitable. He was trying to find a western route, a quicker trade route, to get spices and riches for Spain and impress the monarchs who had sent him. Columbus mistakenly believed the Atlantic Ocean was much smaller t…han it really is, and when he first landed on an island in the Bahamas, believed he had reached the East Indies. When he saw the dark-skinned people (Native Americans), he called them "Indians" It was a total accident. Press View Disscussion. More info. ( Full Answer )
No. He never saw North America nor knew it existed. He found islands in the Bahamas on his 4 voyages. Columbus never landed any where on the North American continent. In the time of his explorations the United States did not exist and would not for another 290 years. He made 4 trips landing on So…uth and Central America on the last two. He refused to believe that he did not find India. This may be why the continents are named after Amerigo Vespucci ( Full Answer )
christopher col. wanted to go to Asia because he wanted spices in order to get spices he went to Asia
Well Columbus didn't the vikings did. Also the Native Americans but they lived in America. In lower grades text books and teachers would say that but as you go in higher grades you learn more the texts books for the higher grades then first and second grade teach you he did as you go in more higher …the teach he didn't. If you want to make sure check text book. But Christopher didn't discover America. . Christopher also got asserted when he went to Spain. ( Full Answer )
He ( and others) were looking for a faster sea route to Asia. The overland trade routes were slow and dangerous so it was thought that a water route to Asia would be better. He was also after riches and fame.
Christopher Columbus wanted to get shiploads of spices becauseduring those times, spices were very valuable. It was used topreserve food, as well as to make medicine, perfume, and incense.
He technically did not 'find' north America it was always there he discovered it but the first on to dicover north America was the Viking lief erikson
Yesh, that and a route to asia, as well as possible slaves and spices. But the gold was one of the main reasons.
He was trying to find a quick route to the Pacific East. Easter Asia would be a nice answer. The first answer is true..... but not all. He wanted gold, fame and anything he can get his hands on. He's wanted for rape, thievery, enslaving and genocidal murder. He cut the hands off of none paying sl…aves. Alright, but that has nothing to do with his original intention with exploring the seas He wanted to go to the western Indies,or Asia ( Full Answer )
Christopher Columbus was an explorer, colonizer, and navigator born in the Republic of Genoa, in what is now northwestern Italy. Under the auspices of the Catholic Monarchs of Spain, he completed four voyages across the Atlantic Ocean that led to general European awareness of the American continents… in the Western Hemisphere. Those voyages, and his efforts to establish permanent settlements in the island of Hispaniola, initiated the process of Spanish colonization and foreshadowed the general European colonization of the New World.

He wanted to find a really fast and easy trade route to the Indies, or Asia. The Indies had a bunch of spices, which Europeans did not have.
On a scale from one to 10. . .I'd say a 5. He may be good a navigating the sea, but not so much in other areas. Points for trying though.
Christopher columbus is from the Genoan Republic, near Italy. Christopher Columbus was born in Genoa Italy in 1451.
Curiosity, money/gold/gems, fame and glory, form allies/friendship, trade, gain territory, greater glory of God, wants another route to asia, make Spain famous.
Technically not. The first Europeans were probably the Vikings in the 10th century. Before them, Native Americans may have come to America from other places rather then evolving there in ancient times. He was just a famous specific European who was one of the first people to go there. The topic can …be debated for hours though. Oh, and Sir Columbus did find land, but he found Central America. And he thought he was in India so he called the native Americans Indians. And that's how the got their name. ( Full Answer )

He wanted a fast, easy way to reach India, in Asia. Christopher Columbus did not know he had reached the Americas. He wanted to get to India for the spice trade.
Columbus wanted to demonstrate a sea route to Asia but ended upexploring Cuba and Hispaniola.
He was looking for a trade route to Asia (the East Indies), where many valuables could be traded (e.g. silk, spices).
Columbus wanted two or three things. The first thing was a water route to Asia so shipping of goods from Asia would be faster and easier. Next he wanted to gain wealth and fame. In his agreement with the King and Queen of Spain he named himself as the "admiral of the seas" and made sure that his chi…ldren would inherit his titles and riches. Little did he realize that all he would find is an island with no gold and a few Native Americans. He never did realize his goals. ( Full Answer )

Christopher was originally looking for Asia and that is where the King and Queen of Spain believed he was going to sail to. They wanted to find a new trade route to Asia and spread Christianity.
because he was asked by someone and he wanted to find riches, gold , and spices, also other tresures
India and China for primarily spices. This is why in the UnitedStates Native Americans are referred to as "Indians." Columbusthought thought he landed on an Island off the coast of India.
no he did not i am a professer at Harvard liisten to me Comment: Nice spelling professor.
He used to sail to sail back to Asia but he landed in north America
Because he wanted to let people learn more about the world so he became a explorer.
It is reported he had read the works of Marco Polo. I think he wanted fame and riches and that was his primary reason.
He thought sailing the Atlantic ocean would bring him faster to India, and eventually make him famous for discovering a new route that leads to Asia. Remember Christopher Columbus set out to find India because they had good spices and good trading material. There was one major problem, the Atlantic …led to the Americas not to India. When Christopher finally reached land he though he was in India, but he was actually in North America. Since he still thought he was in India Christopher called the natives Indians, thus creating a new word to call the Native Americans. Christopher Columbus would later eventually die still thinking that he found India. ( Full Answer )
It is said he wanted to find another route to Asia, including China and India. When he landed, he believed he had landed in India.
Christopher Columbus, is portrayed by elementary school teachers as the founding man for the NEW WORLD. But really he is a murderer and killer. He deserves credit yes for finding the new world but also for cutting off people's hands for not paying his ridiculous taxes, murdering the common people fo…r his joy, and starting slavery in America. He is a very bad man. He also started a law pertaining for when you discover a new land, the people in that land if any become the finders' SLAVES! so get used to it CC is a bad man and deserves credit for only one thing good and quite Lot bad. ~~~ ( Full Answer )
He wanted to go East Indies.... That is INDIA Subcontinent as it was the richest country in the ancient world.
Well, not actually. The viking's were actually the first europeans to discover America but we consider cristoper Columbus the first because the vikings never told anybody, and nobody found out until christopher Columbus found it. .
his original plan was to find asia for the so called gold streets and treasure
so that he could find goods and also so he could prove that the world was not flat.
From a European perspective, he "discovered" what are now called the West Indies, in the sense that Priestly "discovered" oxygen.
he wanted to explore new places because he wanted to claim land for europe and he also wanted riches and wealth from king ferdinand and queen isabella
What did Christopher Columbus think he had discovered on his voyage and what did he really discover?

Christopher Culumbus didn't set out to discover America he was on a trip to India to try and bring Gold back to spain, on this trip columbus proved that the world was round and very very large . :0
No. He had the need for gold and riches which is the motivation for his trip. Of course, we all do but Chris was really putting it all on the line when he set off owing alot of people alot of money and not really knowing for sure what was there. He did know there was a new world, he had access to… the navigational of the time, whichincluded the Viking saga's, and he did have a knowledge of winds on the ocean but it was very high risk. If it takes courage to take risk, Christopher Columbus, had lots of courage. ( Full Answer )
He didn't want to "find America". In fact, he had no idea that it existed and how big the world really was. His maps were wrong, so he went west to go East. He never knew about North America and didn't realize how wrong he was in his calculations. The rest of Spain had no idea about Columbus and his… fame came about years after his death. In fact, in his life he was considered a failure and died broke. His son sued the crown to fulfill the contract he made with him. ( Full Answer )
He wanted to sail goods across the west to India because there weremany silks and spices that the Europeans did not have access to atthe time.
The goals of the Spanish sponsored voyages of Columbus was to find a better trade route to the riches of the far east.
