Magellan was a Portuguese explorer who led the first expedition to sail from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean.

Still, this is a compelling account of the incredible hardships the sailors went through: Magellan wanted to find a passage through the Americas to reach the ocean on the other side, a way to reach the Spice Islands by sailing westwards.
