Travelogue documenting Bailey's trip on the Queen Anna Maria Greek Line in 1965. The ship makes stops in Malta, Egypt, Israel, Morocco, Greece, Turkey, Gibraltar, and Israel. A brief shot of New York City is seen in the middle of the film (it may not have been edited chronologically). Bailey captures extensive footage of local people and street scenes in large cities as well as many people working as fishermen, agricultural workers, and vendors in small markets. Notable landmarks include: St. Paul's Square and Cathedral (Malta), the acropolis at Alexandria, Montaza Palace, Cairo Citadel, Mount of Beatitudes and St. Peter's Church (Israel), the Blue Mosque, Athens acropolis, Achilleion Palace, and São Jorge Castle. Other highlights include Bailey riding a camel in Cairo, feeding a wild monkey in Gibraltar, and a man in a ghutrah disembarking a plane and waving to the crowd in Greece - possibly Saud bin Abdulaziz.
