Snorkeling? Scuba diving? Sign us up. Koh Tao is reputed to have some of Thailand’s best snorkeling and diving. We booked a “big boat” snorkeling day trip around the island.

San Francisco highlights? Its food and wine counts. Biking the Golden Gate bridge is a blast. As is sailing past Alcatraz – no granny cruise this!
