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.
