I was in Thailand for the first time in 1991, at the start of a longer trip to Indonesia. Sadly most of my pictures were lost when one of my bags disappeared.

In 2006 I returned to visit the neighbouring countries of Laos and Cambodia, and again Indonesia.

A highlight of the second stay in Thailand was the encounter with a whaleshark on a dive near Koh Phi Phi.
