Mammoth Lakes, California
For the past 9 years I have been traveling the world on a sailboat. My wife and I left the Netherlands in 2006, cruised around the western Med, across the Atlantic to spend 2 seasons in the Caribbean, then through Panama and across the Pacific to New Zealand. After a circumnavigation of New Zealand we went back to Vanuatu, then to Australia. After a visit to Sydney, anchoring downtown, we sailed north through Papua New Guinea, touched Indonesia, spent time in Palau and then sailed through the Philippines, visited Borneo, Malaysia and Thailand. In 2014, after shipping our boat to Istanbul we sailed to the Black Sea. In 2015 we headed west, through Turkey, Greece and, right now, Albania.
