On our first leg of the Indian Ocean, we learned why it is renowned for being a tough ocean to cross. A few days in and we were missing the smooth and easy going Pacific rolling.
We found ourselves facing sea and weather at full force. Waves jerking us from side to side in strong and stormy winds, with a night fully illuminated by lightning. On this night, the darkness was continously torn by electrostatic power, a raw and angry sky.
After the storms came rainy days, but luckily, after 2 weeks sailing, including a few sunny days, we reached the beautiful lagoon of Cocos Keeling.
