Ayutthuya


We're in Ayutthuya which is about 80km North of Bangkok. We hired a ute to drive us here due to overwhelming Bangkok highways and traffic. Brave, but not that brave.


Got the bikes out today and rode around the town - there are heaps of temples here and plenty of ruins from when the Burmese invaded 500 years ago. The Burmese love bloggers so we'll be watching our backs. We've spent two days here and we're heading north tomorrow to Sing Buri (get your maps out).


It's bloody hot but we're slowly getting used to it. We'll be starting out tomorrow at 0600 hours to try and avoid the worst of the heat.
Ciao for now, hope y'all aren't working too hard xxoo

Hey Guys

So glad to see you're well on your way into the trip and have already figured out how to hire a ute! That's the kiwi spirit...

Looking forward to seeing your photos and hearing how the trip north goes,
