Master of Discoveries

Though there was a word that Amerigo Vespucci discovered the whole American continent, now we all know it was Christopher Columbus. His idea originally was to find the way to India going to the west instead of to the east and thus demonstrate that the Earth is round. He didn’t find the way to India, he found way more than that – he found America. Because he was so persuasive and convincing, Spanish catholic Queen Isabella gave him money and all the supplies for all his voyages. He went to America and back to Spain four times from 1492 to 1504 and every time he discovered something new. It must’ve been great to be the man who discovered half of the world!
