    24hrs + of traveling each way.. tired as hell.. but...

    Place was sick.. Amazing food, tons of shit to do, great beaches, cheap as fuck, nice people/culture, good massages, tons of incredible hotels... nuff said.

    D300 was really put through its paces and I love it.. Got caught in a downpour after my elephant trekking, it got good and wet and it kept on workin' like a champ. Great battery life, great metering/focusing, great screen for on the spot reviews, great interface, 18-200 VR is an amazing vacation lens.

    I hate that place...first couple of times there I would take the moving walkway to my gate. Of course my plane is always at the end where it Y's. Last time there my dumbass realized I could take the train to the end and save about 5 minutes walk. :hs:

    Looks like you had a great time. Love the "Koh Phi Phi on a speedboat" shot!

    Dragon fruit...some good shit!

    I have a lot of pics that looks like you from there, with a D80 and 18-200. I concur this is the best all around lens to travel!

    I really like this picture:

    LOVE Phuket and Krabi.
