Since I am out here until August of 2014, I have been taking the opportunity to visit potential cruising destinations in this par of the world. One of my favorite spots is Thailand, so I took a side vacation in October to Phuket. I did a LOT of scuba diving, and got to see my first HUGE manta ray in the wild. The diving in Phuket was awesome, and I plan on spending quite a bit of time there in the future. I also did a few cool tours. and saw some tigers and did a kayak tour of those tall islets in the bay.
Once again, the trip was too short and I had to head back to Afghanistan
