Pattaya

Saturday, February 27, 2014 We left the Khao Yai NP and this time opted for ‘fastest route’ to our next destination, which put us on highways (with even more manic drivers, truck and others). Also, somehow we found this part…

Khao Yai National Park

Thursday, February 6, 2014 The morning started with a failed search for the local Starbucks. We may have found the mall with the Starbucks, but it did not open until 10:00. So we pressed on without breakfast or coffee. Which…

Phimai and Nakhon Ratchasima

Wednesday, February 5, 2014 Said goodbye to the lovely owners of P. California. They made us feel very welcome, almost like staying with family. Before heading out of town, we went back to the coffee spot we found yesterday. We…

Nakhon Phanom

Wednesday, January 29, 2014 Got up early, well early for us. Grabbed a coffee before heading in the direction of Wat Phu Tok. Along the way we stopped at Tesco for supplies, and where lucky enough to find booster cables.…

Bueng Kan

Tuesday, January 28, 2014 We almost stayed a second day in Nong Khai, but common sense prevailed and we continued our journey East. If Sterlin had failed to start, I think we would have stayed, but fortunately he fired up…
