White-European travellers depart from Italy by sea, playing deck games as their journey gets underway. During his trip to Egypt the film-maker climbs one of the Pyramids, filming a panoramic shot from its zenith. Elsewhere, biplanes perform displays in tight formation. The film ends with footage of a multi-generational picnic.
