You were Columbus!
You were born in Corsica in 1451. As
a child you caught rides on ships; you always loved the sea. You didn’t get much formal education but you were very clever when it came to navigation and sailing. Your idea to sail west to Asia was not to prove that the world was round, but rather to find a quicker route for spice trading. You first set out from Spain in 1492, and in the next year you land on what you thought was Asia but was really what is now Haiti. People say you were numerous things, including one of the greatest mariners in history, a visionary genius, a mystic, a national hero, a failed administrator, a naive entrepreneur, and a ruthless and greedy imperialist. You left this particular lifetime in 1506.
