Andres de Urdaneta的英文資料很多，附上一則：Andres de Urdaneta (b.1498 - d. June 3, Mexico, 1568) was a Spanish friar, sail-captain and explorer. Urdaneta was born in the town of Villafranca in the Basque province of Guipezcoa, Spain. He is known for discovering and plotting a path across the Pacific from the Philippines to Acapulco, New Spain (present-day Mexico), which came to be known as "Urdaneta's route." He set sail from San Miguel in the Philippines on June 1, 1565, and arrived in Acapulco on October 8, having traveled 12,000 miles (20,000 km) in 130 days. Upon arriving, he discovered that a member of the crew of his expedition, Alfonso de Arellano, who had abandoned them just after leaving the port, had actually beaten them across the ocean, arriving at Barra de Navidad in Jalisco on August of the same year. However, Arellano's notes were far less precise and professional than Urdaneta's, and so the latter's route became the famous and trusted one.Urdaneta was also a member of the Loaisa Expedition in 1525-1526, under the command of sea captain Garcia Jofre de Losisa, to colonized the East Indies. However their expedition failed and forced Urdaneta to go back to Spain. 以下還有更多有關他的資料：http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/15223a.htmhttp://e...
