The sea. Palm trees. White sand. Camping on the beach. The sky silhouettes the mountains as it turns orange, pink and then fades to black. It’s a summer holiday in the tropics – and I have cycled here from Holland. Happy.

We cycled more on smaller roads today that followed the coast, and passed through the first beach resort towns. We cycled past an official viewpoint every kilometre. None of the viewpoints had a view.

Arne has cycled from Belgium to here via India, and camped almost every night. He brought me over my renewed fear of camping (when there are perfectly good beds), and we have our tents on the beach (in perfect view of the road). It is kind of cool, camping just metres from the water on a sandy beach.

    Just to tell you i know a green homestay in the south of Thailand.

    I think you have to pay for it…i worked there 16 years ago. Jay is a very kind lady. But maybe you camp from now onwards?

    • It looks lovely! Very beautiful.
      I don’t think I’ll be camping every evening but when i stay in guesthouses, they shouldn’t be too expensive.
      I would definitely like to go to that area. 🙂

  2. Say hello to my compatriot Arne. Is he Dutch native ?
