525 years ago! Wow. Quite sobering to think about that.

His first voyage never made it to MAINLAND America — North, South or Central! Many tend to forget that. Neither did his second voyage. And note that he never made it to North or South America — which is why they are called ‘America’ rather than ‘Columbia’ (or equivalent).
