Nice to hear from you Nigel. I'll be publishing my diving journal in a month or so so you'll be able to read what I thought about diving the Similans and other places on the Andaman Coast. As for Cameras, I've been meaning to update my recomendations as I've found an SLR to be a bit of a pain. If you've the means (and if I could do it again) I would take a high resolution digital camera (around 3 mega pixels or more) instead because all the countries I've been too support them really well and you can easily and cheaply burn pictures to CD just about everywhere. However, what I recommend still stands if your serious about photography and want to use a strong zoom as it is possible to develop film to prints here for around USD 3 and also burn to CD for a little extra, although you have to hunt down the places that do this. Its usualy best to wait till you've got 3-5 films to process and do them all in one go.

Excellent site! I am planning a similar trip though just for 6 months, and I leave just after Easter. I am also into diving; having carried all that gear so far, do you still recommend taking a Nikonos and flash, close-up lens and also an SLR?? have you ditched your fins yet? Many thanks,and I hope your eye is better. Nigel

Hi Sam, well, I'm already back home as you know and just wanted to drop you a line. It was nice meeting you during my trip. I enjoyed our trip to Wat Phou (I hope your audience will be able to read about it later on) in Southern Laos. I have been on the road for "only" 4 weeks but I'm already makinf my schedule for the next trip. Once you've seen SE Asia, you get addicted. If you're intersted in some pictures for your website from our trip, just mail me and you'll get them. By the way, when I left to head back to Pakse, the tuk tuk drivers wanted to charge 8 US$ !!! So I told them, I would prefer walking the 30 km. Well, I walked about 2 hours before I got a ride on a pick up truck. But at least I did not pay that much. ;-)) Good luck for the rest of your trip. I'll check your website to read your opinion about southern Laos as well as about Cambodia. CU, Günter
