Origin of the Story:
Once there lived a poor porter Sindbad who came across a lovely mansion and envied its master. Sindbad the sailor who was the master of the mansion enquired about his envy and offered him wine and food to eat. Then Sindbad the sailor narrated his story of how he became rich to the porter and others who were at his mansion.

The Story of First Voyage: 

After his father's death, Sindbad spends all his wealth and was left with nothing. But, then he decided to work hard and earn all the wealth back. He decided to become a merchant. Sindbad joined some merchant traders at Basrah on a ship to reach out to different countries. 

The crew halted on a small island for rest. As they were hungry some of the crew started to cook, and Sindbad decided to take a look around the island. Suddenly everything around him started shaking. All the crew members ran and got to the ship but they didn't notice that they left Sindbad behind. Then they realized that it was not an island but the back of a sleeping whale. The whale started going under the water. 

Sindbad was left floating in the ocean with the help of a wooden log. He floated for several days and finally reached a shore of an island. 

There he saved the King's horse from a supernatural sea monster. The king gratefully accepted him and gave him a job on his port. One day the ship that abandoned him came to the port. 

He went to the king and told him that he is leaving for his homeland. As the king was very happy with his work, he gave him lots of rewards which Sindbad traded and became rich.
