ETIAS Travel Permit to enter Europe (Latino)
The European Union announced in 2018 that it created the European Travel Information and Authorization System, ETIAS (or ETIAS for short), which will require “a pre-travel assessment of security and migration risks for travelers benefiting from visa-free access to the Schengen area.”

The European Commission clarifies that citizens of countries that do not need a visa to enter the Schengen area will still not need one. What changes is that travelers will have to process the ETIAS permit before their trip.
To obtain this document you will not have to go to a consulate, no biometric data or information will be taken from you as is collected during the visa process, says the European Commission. On the contrary, while visas are processed in a matter of days or even months, ETIAS “only takes a few minutes” to process online.

The rest of the theories of pre-Columbian contacts are highly speculative, and lack scientific consensus. It has been speculated with a possible African origin of the Olmec people, hypothesis of racist origin based on the supposed “negroid” features of some Olmec sculptures, and that later was embraced by certain Afrocentrist currents.  Genetic evidence has shown that Olmec populations are not related to African populations, and the supposed anthropological evidence has been described as based on “superficial judgments and erroneous conclusions. “ There has also been speculation of pre-Columbian contacts by Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Phoenician, Egyptian, Roman, Celtic, Jewish, Arab  navigators or explorers, and African travelers from the Mali empire. None of these hypotheses have scientific consensus, and are usually considered pseudo-archaeology and pseudo-history.
THE LONGEST TRIP OF MY LIFE! – Oscar Alejandro
The answer is yes. In May 2017 I had the opportunity to travel on a transatlantic cruise from Cartagena de Indias, Colombia to Lisbon, Portugal, it’s a repositioning cruise. It was over two weeks on board, several stops along the way and a completely different experience than traveling by plane. And yes, it is worth less than a plane ticket.
These ships are called repositioning cruises, positioning, or repos, as they are known in the jargon. For a long time most companies did not market these ships, until slowly the trend began to reverse.
This is one of the most frequently asked questions and one of the most difficult to answer because it will all depend on when you read this post. The route I took in May 2017 started from Puerto Limon in Costa Rica. It stopped in Cartagena, Saint Marteen, Antigua, Madeira and finally arrived in Lisbon.
It all depends on the itinerary you choose, and the port where you board. Generally, an average of 12 days is calculated. We sailed 14 days and made three stops between the port of origin and the final destination. In total there were 7 consecutive days of seeing nothing but water.
As of May 2023, Mexicans will be required to obtain a visa to travel to Mexico.
The XVI century is the century of the great geographical discoveries. The world began to be known through geographers and cartographers. Wars prevented travel in Europe, so at this time travels multiplied, especially to America. The accounts of these journeys told by the adventurers themselves or through chroniclers and religious writers helped to better understand the new world. Although many of these chronicles narrate the events of the conquest, in many cases they also include an in-depth description of the flora and fauna as well as the ethnography and geography of the place.
