At about 10.30 this morning I crossed the borders out of Cambodia and into Thailand.
They are on the wrong side of the road, idiots, after 12 month of riding on the right I enter Thailand and the Thais for some irregular reason ride/drive on the left.
Well first impressions:
- People are friendly,
- Roads are in better condition than Cambodia
- Road users are going faster
- Hotels are more expensive and worse value for money.
- It’s still hot.
I met 2 Russian cyclists today (that’s a first, well first and second). They have cycled from Russia through China, for some inexplicable reason I did not get their names or contact details. But while talking they saw a tuc tuc full of backpackers, they pointed and laughed, ‘ah backpackers just following the Lonely Planet like lemmings. All in the same footsteps, idiots’ I laughed so hard, how could they have known they were my exact sentiments.
