Sunny Bunnies are full of joy, and any dull matter they happen to come across is turned into an exciting game, and any place they happen to be at into a playground. Wherever they appear – park, stadium or circus – the Bunnies find something to do straight away and make it fun. The Bunnies can laugh at each other and make jokes with each other, but they are always ready to lend a hand. They quite often end up in ridiculous and funny situations, but always find a solution to the most difficult of problems – all thanks to the team spirit. When the game is over they come back home, to the Sun. That being said, these restless creatures can’t stay still for long and pretty soon they set off on their travels again, going to new places and turning new adventures into fun-filled games.
In 1519, Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan sailed the Pacific East to West on a Spanish expedition to the Spice Islands that would eventually result in the first world circumnavigation. Magellan called the ocean Pacífico (or “Pacific” meaning, “peaceful”) because, after sailing through the stormy seas off Cape Horn, the expedition found calm waters. The ocean was often called the Sea of Magellan in his honor until the eighteenth century. Magellan stopped at one uninhabited Pacific island before stopping at Guam in March 1521. Although Magellan himself died in the Philippines in 1521, Spanish Basque navigator Juan Sebastián Elcano led the remains of the expedition back to Spain across the Indian Ocean and round the Cape of Good Hope, completing the first world circumnavigation in a single expedition in 1522. Sailing around and east of the Moluccas, between 1525 and 1527, Portuguese expeditions discovered the Caroline Islands, the Aru Islands, and Papua New Guinea. In 1542–43 the Portuguese also reached Japan.
