I was in the most faraway and exotic place I knew of; a dream since childhood. The one thing I had to do, and wanted to do, was to capture the spirit of adventure with the one thing I could remember this by: a photo.

July 27, 1994: Into Phang Nga Bay I ventured, on a boat trip to Khao Phing Kan island. Passing ithe 66-foot tall (20 m) limestone tower known as Ko Ta Pu, we headed toward a sandy beach and, just like James Bond, I landed on Scaramanga’s island.

July 26, 1994: I landed in Phuket, Thailand. I knew the beach was around here somewhere, but where? I looked in local books. No. Postcards? No. Finally I found it, in a tour brochure: Phang Nga Bay.

I thought, “what you really need is a Lonely Planet book but with pictures instead of text, so you can flick through, find the view, and get a map to the location. It could be called “PhotoSecrets”.

In the 1974 movie “The Man with the Golden Gun”), James Bond duels with Francisco Scaramanga, the famed assassin who uses a golden gun. As a child in England, this beach was the most exotic and faraway place I’d ever seen, and I had always wanted to go there.

24 years ago today, I was in Bali on a round-the-world trip. A week earlier, I departed LAX seen off by then-girlfriend and now-wife and business partner, Jennie. Gee, my hair had color then, and Jennie hasn’t aged since.
