Our last trip ended in sadness because my brother, Peter, a wonderful musician, devoted Dad and much loved brother died on 3 February 2019. He was a traveller who loved this part of the world and was responding with wit and perceptive comments to photos we sent to him by WhatApp up to a few days before he died. We all miss him greatly.
But Peter would have wanted us to carry on and so, over the Christmas break, we are planning the next leg of this amazing journey. At the moment we are planning to leave the UK on the 29th February for about 7 weeks, with a provisional plan to cycle from Bangkok to Singapore.
If anyone reading this has experience of cycling this route, we would love to hear from you. All tips, routes and information about places that must be visited (or must be avoided) would be most welcome.
It seems prescient to start the trip again on 29th February, the leap day of a leap year, and we will start the blog again as we lead up to our departure.
Happy Christmas to anyone reading this and our very best wishes for 2020.
David and Bernie
