Bang Pa-in > Nonthaburi (49km)


Aie aie aie, that’s it… I’m heading to the anthill, the traffic jam, the pollution, the noise, all the things I like :-) If it wasn’t to pick up my new GPS I would be cycling through Cambodia right now. But that’s the way it is. I will survive as always.

Hayes Creek > Batchelor (98km, 4h50)

I know the turn off is something like 50km after Mataranka so I will stop somewhere there for the night and will decide tonight.
