    In 2005 we sailed around Hawaii for a while, then headed south towards the equator.  We then sailed south across the equator, and we cruised the south pacific until we arrived in New Zealand on December 6, 2005. 

    In 2006 we sailed around New Zealand a bit then north to Fiji.  We were in Fiji for almost four months, then we sailed from Fiji to Vanuatu then from Vanuatu to Australia.

    In 2007, we sailed more than 2,000 miles up the east coast and across the top of Australia - from Bundaberg to Darwin.  We sailed from Darwin to Timor, Indonesia, and we spent three months cruising in Indonesia.  We sailed from Indonesia to Singapore where we stayed for three weeks.  Then we spent a month sailing in Malaysia, and we sailed in to Phuket, Thailand

    In 2008, we cruised the west coast of Thailand then returned to Malaysia for six months.  We then returned to Thailand for the second time, and we spent the remainder of the year there.

    In 2009, we did not head west as planned.  We spent our time between Langkawi, Malaysia and Phuket, Thailand.  We also made a trip out to India's Andaman Islands.

    In 2010, we started the year in the Andaman Islands then returned to Phuket, Thailand then Langkawi, Malaysia.  We spent 2010 between Phuket and Langkawi while making final plans to head west around the first of the year.  We are really ready to move on.

    In 2011, we finally left southeast Asia and headed west across the Indian Ocean and Red Sea.  We sailed from Thailand to Sri Lanka and from Sri Lanka to the Maldives.  While in the Maldives we decided to ship Passage  through the pirate-infested waters that had recently turned so dangerous and violent - from the Maldives to Turkey.  We met Passage in Turkey, and we began our cruising in Europe.

    In 2012, we started in Turkey and sailed through Greece, Albania, Italy, Malta, and Spain - including the Canary Islands.

    In 2013, we crossed the Atlantic to the Caribbean.  We sailed south through some of the windward islands - St. Lucia, St. Vincent and Grenadines, and Grenada

    In 2014, we sailed from Grenada to the ABC Islands including Bonaire, Curacao, and Aruba.  Then we sailed from the ABC Islands to Panama, spent some time in Panama, transited the Panama Canal, and returned to the Pacific Ocean.  In the Pacific, we sailed from Panama to the Galapagos Islands, then we made the long passage from the Galapagos to French Polynesia.  In French Polynesia we visited the Marquesas, Tuamotus, and Society Islands (Tahiti, Mo'orea, and Raiatea).

    In 2015, we sailed a bit around the Society Islands then returned to Hawaii.
