I would venture to guess that Kasma's favorite activity on her trips is snorkeling. We both like it so much that this past year, when we had some extra free time, we traveled to Krabi province on our own to do some more snorkeling.
The pictures here were all taken by Kasma in Krabi Province either in December 2008 during her 26-day Trip A or in January 2009 during our own excursion to the south. Every picture is from a place where Kasma takes both Trip A and Trip So, the 25-day trip of the south.
The vast majority of these photo are from Phi Phi National Park. On each of the trips we take a speed boat out to Phi Phi and spend all day snorkeling in 5 or 6 different locales. There are also 3 pictures from Koh Gai (Chicken Island) and 8 others from Koh Poda (Poda Island).
We suggest that you click on the first image and then just click on the images themselves to walk through the photos. Rather than organize them thematically, they are presented chronologically. In many ways, snorkeling is a random endeavor: you never know what you will see. You can be snorkeling along in a severely damaged area, decide to head into shore (or out) and suddenly be in a coral wonderland full of exotic, beautiful fish.
Hopefully this pictures will give an idea of some of the fun and adventure of snorkeling, of swimming around a rock into a massive school of anchovies, spying a darting yellow fish out of the corner of your eye, or following a huge jellyfish (at a distance!) for several minutes, wondering at the improbability of such a creature existing.
