The first country to send an explorer to the new world was Spain. However, the first European country to have someone successfully make the trip was Portugal, with Christopher Columbus being the famous explorer who is credited with "discovering" America.

There are many notable countries known for exploring, the first being a young Norway, feeling misunderstood by his European colleagues. So he packed his bag and took off, roaming the world for hilarious adventures and hijinks. Unfortunately for our friend Norway, he wandered into the bad part of the world and was sucked into the realm of heroin and opium. Norway finally died on December 30, 1912 after being stomped on by a heroin-hungry elephant.

They called it vineland or wineland. Because there were wild grapes growing where they landed.
