People, such as the Norsemen, were looking for places to inhabit. Adventurers such as Marco Polo, explored for commercial purposes; to see what goods may be traded. Of course, the Europeans who came to the Americas were looking for more efficient routes to the east for trade, but in order to finance their trips, they were also looking for gold and riches.
