When Bill Talbert went to Australia for the Davis Cup tennis matches he took along his 9-year-old son Pike. After the Australia campaign Bill and Pike returned around-the-world. They traveled 28,000 miles in 24 days (16 of them Christmas holidays) and touched 10 countries. Here are highlights from Pike's album, with his own captions.
