The Countries That I Did Not Visit

On the world voyage, Antonio de Herrera a contemporary secondary author stated that Drake reconnoitred the coast of Angola. In chronological order Drake would also have observed: Guatemala, Namibia, Congo, Gabon and Equatorial Guinea. To shorten the sailing, he may not have seen Cameroon, Nigeria, Benin, Togo, Ghana and Ivory Coast. On the last voyage, In the Caribbean Sea Drake sailed past Montserrat, Redonda, Nevis, St Eustatius, St Croix, Bonaire and Aruba. I did not visit these countries because only coastline was observed.
