We, Chris & K.T. Myles, started our "around the world" adventure on December 18, 2003 from Ventura, California. Over 27,000 nautical miles, 24 countries, 2,018 days (5-1/2 yrs), and 20,000+ photos later we decided it was time to move back to land and start a new adventure ... a family. With mixed feelings we have ended our cruise (in Turkey) and sold our trusty yacht, Billabong.

Latest News & Location
Announcement / New Blog
We might have sold Billabong but the fun isn't over! Sail billabong will remain here for those we still want to browse or enjoy the photos.
We have also started The Myles Crew blog which will highlight our blunders as we attempt to adjust back in the "real world" and stumble through our initiation into parenting.
In addition we will (one day soon) start updating our Photo and Cooking blogs more frequently.
Finike Turkey & A few Day Trips
Photos from around Finike as well as a day trip to Marmaris and another to Kastelorizo, Greece. (7MB)
For the next few months (over the winter) we will be staying mostly around Finike (plus a flight home to the States). Since we don't have a lot to report, we will post most new news on our SV Billabong Blog (until the next cruising season starts). Note that the blog has its own subscription links if you are interested in knowing when it is updated.
And for food or photo fans we will be regularly updating our two other blogs: Snaps360 and From the Galley.

EVERYBODY asks us how we afford to do this and what it costs ... well it's no longer a secret!
Yep, as if we didn't have enough "stuff" out there we have created two new Blogs:
A travel photography blog. For those who prefer pictures over words - this blog is for you! We are posting one photo or one slideshow per week - and picking those photos that mean the most to us.
