Map of Thailand

Just nipped into The Works to see if they had any books on Thailand. No books but I picked up a map. Bargain at 99p. When I got to the til they told me it was a BOGOF so I went and picked up another map of Thailand. That's one for me and one for Dad for the grand sum of 99p. If that's not a bargain I don't know what is!

I doubt it will be any good for navigating but will be useful to see where Dad is and where he is heading on his trip.

He's off again .... and this time it's Thailand

Well he's been talking about it for awhile but he's now booked his flights and Dad and his bike are off to Thailand in February and this trip he'll have some company as his pal Dave King is also going.

Dad is heading out a few days earlier than Dave and his first stop will be the island of Phuket - now be careful how you say that because in this instance the "Ph" is NOT pronounced as "F" !  No real plans yet other than bike, coast and pedal, so if anyone has "must see" tips on places to visit then let us know. Also any useful advice on things to take, places to stay, or any contact information for friends out that way would also be most welcome.

He's heading off on the 18th February, so watch this space for updates on his trip.

Happy New Year

Well here we are in 2012.  Dad saw the New Year in up in the Lake District. He's probably been up some mountain today .... starting the year off as he means to go on !  He's only off for a few days so it's not a long adventure ! 

Hope 2012 brings you much joy and happiness.
