First off, my I just say that I firmly do not believe in whatever this whole blog thing is. It just took me like 20 minutes to figure it out. Secondly the main drive for European explorers to seek the new world was to gain that upper hand on the other countries of Europe. It developed into almost a competition as time went on. I think that in the beginning, it was about the exploring and the bringing in of foreign goods but towards when the British, French and other northern European countries followed the original explorers Spain and Portugal, it turned into more of a competition to get more land, foreign goods, riches (gold), people and power.
