Christopher Columbus (1451-1506) was an Italian explorer who sailed across the Atlantic Ocean in 1492, hoping to find a route to India
He wanted to seek the route to Asia. Most people say he discovered America, others say he didn't. They were other people who have been to America before him. When, he was on his ship with his sailors, he was the captain. Him and he's sailors did not see any aight of land. His men began to grumble, t…hey were afraid the would never see home again. To help them stay calm, Christopher kept two (2) records, or ships log. The first one he, recorded the actually distance that sailed each day. In the second one, he recorded a shorter distance. He showed his crew the second log so they would not know how far they were from Spain. Still, the men worried. They demanded Columbus to turn back, Columbus asked them to wait two (2) more days, If, they didn't see any land, he will return back to Spain. Just in time, October 12, 1492, a lookout yelled "Â¡Tierra! Â¡Tierra!" (Land! Land!). ( Full Answer )

\nThe proper way to ask this question would be, "Where did Christopher Columbus travel?" and he landed in the Indies, in Trinidad specifically.
It took Christopher Columbus about 5 weeks to cross the AtlanticOcean. He first sighted the Bahamas on October 12, 1492. He calledit San Salvatore.
i think his original destination was India/Asia because of their spices. i heard that they needed a new route to India/Asian for their spices because the original route had been closed off due to another state's control of that specific trade route. but Columbus journey was interrupted because he ha…ppened upon the Americas. his original destination, India/Asia, had been compromised because he was "greedy" for the native American's abundance of wealth (mainly gold). he exploited them, enslaved them, and took their gold so that the voyage would not be a total disaster. the ruler of Spain had sponsored this journey, so he thought that if he came back with a ton of gold, the ruler would not be as harsh on him for not finding another route... at least that's what i think ( Full Answer )
Actually, his real reason was to search for another route to Asia for spices; but in the end, he found the 'new world'...(Americas)
Americans are so ignorant, just like you, first of all their is only one America from Alaska to the south pole, you stole the name, but all of us who are born-ed in this continent are Americans, Columbus did not arrive in or at America, since the continent was named after he died, Americo Vespucci a…nd Italian Geographer new that this land mass was different from the rest of the known world, and Spain and Portugal claimed it in equal half's. the year 12th of october 1492, the place he left puerto de palos EspaÃ±a, the place he disembarked was what we know now as Haiti, not what you idiots think is America.

Why do authors write anything??? Some people love football, others love Pokemon, others love writing. Some people are born to write; Christopher Paolini is writing the series because he loves it.
Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand sponsored (gave him money) his voyage. They gave him 3 ships called the the Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria.
Tat he would bring back all riches that he found. Queen Isabella promiced him all the land he found would go to him and it would be owned by Christopher Columbus. (my amazing social studies teacher taught me! HE is thee best)
He was funded by the King and Queen of France to try to make his way to India to get spices but ended up discovering the Americas
Who was the first European explorer to explore land that became part of the USA was it Christopher Cloumbus or Juan ponce De Leon'?
Juan Ponce De Leon was actually the first because Christopher Columbus actually landed in the Bahamas and Juan landed in Puerto Rico and Dominican republic and Florida .
Columbus talked to Elizabeth the first (Isabel I), called the catholic queen or Isabel la catÃ³lica.
Yes. He was married twice. He married Faith Coghill in 1669. She died in 1675. He married Jane Fitzwilliam in 1677. She died in 1680.
He was one of 1200 who sailed on the second expedition of Columbus on the 24th September 1493.
