Coming to an end

Saying goodbye to the beautiful beach at Pag Meang in the morning

Apologies that the blog has not been updated for the last few days but we have been in turmoil and can now report that this particular adventure is coming to a premature end.  We were already worried about whether to come home to offer help to our families and others as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, but the decision was made for us when Malaysia closed its borders on Monday.

So we have made it to Trang and have tickets for the overnight train to Bangkok.   Hopefully, we will then get a flight back to the UK.

Marcus from Switzerland who we met today – he is cycling home from Australia. Good luck to him!!

Thanks for reading and sharing this journey with us.  It has been really special even if shorter than we hoped.  However, given the very serious challenges that people are facing all over the world as a result of Coronavirus, the premature end of our cycling trip is totally irrelevant.

Hopefully we will have the time to post a reflective piece over the next fews days, but until then – this is us signing off.

  1. It’s been such a welcome relief to read your adventures while this crisis has been building. But very glad you are on your way back. Look after yourselves and let’s catch up in our mutual isolation! Sally xx
