Past simple VS past perfect with 'until'

Good morning, our teachers,

Would you please, help me to clarify the difference in meaning between the following two sentences:

  • People hadn't travelled easily round the world from west to east until they dug the Suez Canal.

 

  • People didn't travel easily round the world from west to east until they had dug the Suez Canal.

 

Many thanks ...
