I, therefore, proceed in the hope of coming across such places -Christopher Columbus, journal entry, 14921Now write a three-paragraph essay explaining the following:-What motivated Columbus to explore the Americas?-How did his actions in the Americas reflect his motivations?Was Columbus typical of explorers during that time or did other explorers have different or additional motives?
