Strait of Magellan, South America

www.anitaerdmann.com

 

We were sailing in the Strait of Magellan South America on a beautiful calm day. The reflections were just amazing. Ferdinand Magellan (also the man who discovered the Philippines) became the first European to navigate the strait in 1520, during his global circumnavigation voyage. I had the joy of sailing the same path as he did, only 488 years later!!
