the drake passage. still not afraid of it. but after passing through it twice, huge respect for it. I'd do it all again.

The part I'm most scared about... the Drake Passage. Rough seas to be certain.

Strait Of Magellan

The Strait of Magellan is a passageway from the Atlantic to the Pacific Oceans that runs through Chile. It was discovered and named after Ferdinand Magellan, the first explorer to circumnavigate the globe. This route was much safer and faster than the Drake Passage, which went through the dangerous waters between South America and Antarctica. This passage proved a more efficient way of trade and exploration. It was one of the most important routes until the Panama Canal opened in 1914.
