04/20: SPY

Posted on Friday, June 25th, 2010

Dave!Today's word in the TWENTY/TWENTY meme is "Spy."

I had to really wrack my brain on this one, because it's not like I know a lot of spies to take their photographs. Eventually I decided to find something vaguely James Bond-ish in my photo library and make it work. Then, just as I was starting to look, I remembered that I had a photo that was totally James Bond... namely, my visit to "James Bond Island" in Phang Nga, Thailand...

The real name of the island is "Ko Khao Phing Kan" and the skinny rock there where the evil Bond villain, Scaramanga, mounted his Solex weapon is actually called "Ko Tapu" or "Nail Island." My brother and I took a boat there while visiting Phuket in South Thailand. It was a very cool trip, because the scenery was pretty incredible...

Phang Nga

Wow. I really need to go back one of these days.

In other news, I had pancakes for dinner. They were crazy-delicious.

    Now I want pancakes.

  2. Gorgeous pictures! I spent several holidays in Phuket, most while I lived in Japan. It’s such a special place, and while other islands and cities became trendier, and the latest hotspots were discovered (and then exploited), I continued to go back to my lovely Phuket. This made me miss it! It seems very far away now.

    beautiful! I want to go there!

    p.s. pancakes for dinner = patriotism
