Juan Ponce de Leon's Route
ponce DE Leon character traits
Juan Ponce de Leon was a very adventurous man and risk taking person, because one he went on 2 voyages,[ first he went in 1493 on the Columbus 2 voyage and the second he went by him self in 1513 to look for the Fountain of Youth and to find the Island of Bimini.] and two he had to face Native Americans more then once. Also he went on a voyage and left his wife and four children on a risk to die from the Native Americans because they thought people were there to harm them, but not all were there to harm them. Also the Native Americans didn't want them to take there land so they would fight them or kill them right away. Juan Ponce de Leon, I think, had a very kind heart because he never actually hurt the Native Americans on purpose, though he did do it to defend him self. He also seems like he was determined. He was determined to find the Fountain of Youth and the Island of Bimini though he didn't.
Juan Ponce DE Leon's explorations from the perspective of a shipmate
I was there for both of the young Juan Ponce de Leon's two voyages. When he went with Christopher Columbus, I was super surprised, but a lot of people know what it was like on that voyages to to be a shipmate on that and a lot of people don't really know what it was like to be a shipmate on Juan's second voyages. He was giving orders, this and that and knew what he was doing. When we saw land crazy happened. More and more orders, getting this and that ready and finding them, and a lot more. The more we discovered something the crazier it got. The worst thing about the voyages was the Native Americans how would fight us but Juan would try to protect us. I could not ask for a better captain.
