A BlurbBit Sample Album With Route

This is the same album but instead of using our general album location, I added our first years sailing track and Bora Bora (who doesn't know about it?)
Don't forget to check out all the geotagged photo maps after you've loaded the photos: click on the Geo-Photos button to get a summary map and then click on the Location Map to see each photos location on a map.

A BlurbBit Sample Album

Our first year was an amazing eye opening experience about what this cruising lifestyle has to offer. Nothing can ever replace your first remote island anchorage after a 24 day non-stop no-land passage. Nothing!!
We saw some amazing things and met some wonderful natives and cruisers. How do you beat an adventure like this? and how do you go back to work?? (if you are my future boss.. just kidding;)

A Blog Photo Album of snaps360

We've taken over 25,000 photos during our five year trip, we highlight one a week at

Round the World Pacific Center

This is the default center with no special case handling other than the require split at 0 degree longtitude.

Round the World Atlantic Center

So here we have to cheat a bit.. By default the center of a circumnavigation is at 180 (360/2 = 180) however we might have some folks who, even though they loved the South Pacific, want the map centered in the Atlantic (it will automatically if < 180 degrees are covere). Here we add a special case %26center=0,0 and split the RTW path at 180 degrees. The results are

A BlurbBit

In order to make this work, the path needs to be split at 0 longitude. Have one path end at say 36.5,-0.1 and the other one start at 36.5,0.1. The - is important if the line crosses 0 degrees the underlying Google Static Maps will Wrap it the wrong way round the world (see previous post)
