Long trade expedition days are over
The discovery of many cities and regions of the world happened as we have a look on the history.
Some discoveries were accidental while some were intentional.
It's quite surprising to believe that the traders were also a part of some of these discoveries.
In old days traders had to travel miles and miles away from their regions , villages and home for the sake of their businesses. Traders in every era of the history could be seen talking a keen interest in traveling to other places. It's a fact that traveling in old times was not as easy as today but still the hassles faced during traveling long distances don't bother the traders.
The question arises that was the reason for these traders to travel so much
Actually traders always expanded their businesses through some strategies. In old times businesses were done on very small scales. The buyers of a particular seller belonged to the same village or city. As traveling was not very easy, and traders didn't have much exposure, they didn't use to bother to go to other villages or cities.
But as the time passed, traders realized that for the sake of growing their businesses they had to enlarge their business circles. And fir the sake of enlarging the business circles they must had to travel to other places.
Traders started from small expeditions to other villages and nearby towns and continued to travel long distances as well. On their way discoveries happened, new regions were discovered. And new doors for trade kept on opening.
But then again , as traveling was not that easy , it required plenty of time and money which was spend on it. But traders had to spend it for the trade sake.
